File transfer

The answer to the battery question on cover page about turning serial port off and on was incorrect. The last line says that resident applications will turn on the serial port after the user has disabled it. That's not true, as we have seen many times when people discover FILER won't work with a PC.

Try it for yourself. Go into FILER, shell to System, type serctl /o. Then exit to FILER. Connect to the PC. Establish the connection from the PC side. The 95LX will go into remote mode -- but PC will say "Connection not established" or some such thing. That's because the receive side of the serial port is still active -- but the send side has been disabled.

LICS character set

Also, in Programmer's Corner, middle of page 30, it says the 95LX does not use the LICS character set. It uses the PC-850 character set which is quite similar to PC-8. Some of the resident applications do use the LICS character set.

I hope Ed will devote at least part of a column to using Turbo Debugger with the 95LX, as that is by far the best tool for debugging 95LX applications.
