Checking disk space free

Postby exxos » Mon Jan 18, 2016 1:47 pm

I found "DFREE()" should do what I want, but for some odd reason it won't compile in Hisoft basic :(

So are there any other ways to get disk space free ?

lol, forsaking STOS ... ;)
Check the EXTRA or MISTY extensions, there are in depth details on free disk space and details about disks themselves..
There is also a set of PEEK/DEEK commands but I'd have to dig these out, they're on A STUser disk
lol, thats the second time today I've pointed to the ST User disks...

Yeah, I saw your other post, I couldn't find the cube stuff ;) I was asking about 3D cubes last weekmyself :)

Hisoft seems a bit limited in commands other than STOS. Though I can't do GEM programming in STOS ;)

Try, JULY ST User 1991

I'm currently in the process of an operating system clean out and am at the stage of new windows, no installed software

Ok, 3D_05 (Part 5 is on this one) Use the RUNTIME.PRG (Hi res is better than med!)

Trial and error will get the rest lol...

Isn't there a generic way to make GEMDOS calls?
