While trying to use Hatari to debug Hextracker, i found out that i can not use MONST from Devpac 1.24.
Here is what i do:
- I launch MONST.PRG;
- The program waits for a filename as input;
- The program tries to load the code file and fails despite the file exists;
I tried with several file names, upper and lower cases to check for a case sensitive error, but it does not work.
I get TOS ERROR 1 like if the file does not exist.

The best is to provide you with the files:
- MONST.PRG the debugger;
- 5060HZ.PRG a small program that should be loaded and that is not;

However, all TOS versions, including EmuTOS, seem to handle that fine.
To make Hatari GEMDOS emulation more accurate, I would need to know what TOS does, does it:
- cut the extension to 3 characters
- filter illegal characters from the filename and if yes, does it do that only from the end

But from the user point of view (emulation point of view), there is a clear behaviour difference between the real machine and Hatari.
ljbk wrote:I have no idea what TOS does to unexpected lengths, characters, extensions lengths or strings in general it will use for fopen or for any other file function. I would have to look inside TOS as anyone can. You can go to address 0x00000084 where you can find the trap #1 vector. GEMDOS fopen receives as parameters in the stack 0x003D (function number), the classic pointer_to_file_name (.l) and an attribute (read, append, write, ...) (.w). With this, you can dissassemble a small part of the TOS and check it.

Thanks for the update.
