Creating and using FILER.INI
The 200LX has an undocumented Launcher feature that allows you to highlight a file in Filer and press (ENTER) to launch the program. Create a FILER.INI file in the C:\_DAT subdirectory with the following format, substituting your favorite programs where they don't match mine. To create the FILER.INI file, in Memo, press (MENU) File New to start a new file, and enter the text shown below:
On the left side of the equals (=) sign is the extension of the file you will highlight in Filer. On the right is the COM or .EXE file to launch.
FILER.INI cannot be used to launch batch files.
