Sorry, but just some simple questions:

- I think I understood from your discussion that both USR and PRG
files can be read successfully without fiddling with '_filetype' -

- So the question is what type of file is created on writing a file.
What does 'S' do? From what I understand here it creates PRG files.
But what's the difference to 'P' then?

- What happens if a file already exists? Is the filetype preserved on
"overwriting" the file?

I need to understand this specifically because my Contiki disks so far
depend on the 'contiki.cfg' file being _not_ PRG. What do I need to
set '_filetype' to in order to get the previous behaviour?

My section above already proves this claim to be wrong on the very first day!
