Thank you Dilwyn!
I extracted the code from turbo_tk_code

Re: Get drive free space

I am suspecting you are really needing to use the function DEVICE_STATUS, where the file is not open yet. No - I have checked with the file opend. My assembled code is not working. When calling the same function from Turbo Toolkit, it works. I presume that it is not working because I did something ...

Re: Get drive free space

If the Turbo Toolkit function does what you want, you could probably use the DEA software to extract the keyword as assembler source and amend it to do what you want. Instructions on using DEA to do this at https://quanta.org.uk/wp-content/uploads/2014/01/QUANTA-HELPLINE-35.pdf . Or you could look ...

All products sold on Ebay and delivered to Romania by Ebay Delivery now carry an import tax between 25% and 34%, payed directly to Ebay :( God only knows why the tax is not a fixed percentage.

Re: Broadband switchover

I don't know how it works in UK, but here upgrading from copper wire to fiber optics took 30 minutes - but they required access into the house. They came and installed the fiber optics cable. Then they removed the old copper cable. (so internet off). Installed the new router in my office and configu...

Re: Today I Received...

Hey guys, don't rush! It's not for you! :D But I admit that cloning Marcel is a great idea! Tetroid, too! :idea: There is no vet reproduction clinic in Romania that can work with frozen semen. So I hope that ours will be the first one. But as I live in a country that has mostly idiots in the governm...

Re: Get drive free space

Dir output to a file - doesn't work. I mean, I want to check if I have space to write a 1k file. If I don't have space for that than I might don't have enough space for a dir file.
Dir output to a pipe - this might work, except that I have no way of knowing how many bytes per sector there are.
