mmh well.... i think there is such a header-file (for kernal_open
kernal_in kernal_out kernal_close etc alike stuff) written by UZ in
the disk-io routines written by someone else on this list i dont
remember atm ,=) (speak up ppl ;D)

besides that, i dont think there is any support for that kinda

well, and last not least i am working on wrapping all those kernal
calls into standard-ansi-c functions (open/read/write/close etc pp)
and yes, i will also provide such a lowlevel header to access the
kernal... i cant make any promises on when i will have the time to
sort out the current version and do a first release though, i hope i
can do it within the next weeks (or even months ;/) but i can only
work occasionaly at it since my sparetime is rare.

i'd definetly suggest to checkout that header from UZ (although i have
never seen it myself hehe) instead of writing anything yourself....

Best regards,

To unsubscribe from the list send mail to with
the string "unsubscribe cc65" in the body(!) of the mail.
