Needs to Read Large Text Files on the 95LX

Needs to Read Large Text Files on the 95LX

I am an active researcher and author of scientific monographs who uses the HP 95LX for word processing and note taking.

I am working on a 400 page monograph, mainly using my Macintosh Powerbook. However, it would be handy to edit documents on my 95LX.

I bought the 10 MB Sundisk flash card, on which I was able to install some larger chunks of my book. Unfortunately, there is no way to access these large text files! MEMO and RE .EXE (ON DISK) have a limit of about 48K. I contacted ACE, and learned that fastWRITE, not yet available, has a limit of 80K. It seems strange that there is no way to be able to open up long files merely to read them. Please advise me what to do.

[For viewing only, you can use the built in FILER. Simply put the cursor on the file name and press (ENTER). You will be able to see the file and scroll through it, but there are no editing capabilities.

WordPerfect 4.2 as described on page 44 of the Nov/ Dec 92 issue, may be another solution.

The new 100LX file size is limited only by the available memory -- Robert Roney.]
