ALT-C Save -DD -bX -CX -iX -tX options in LSTOPT. bat . Theseseem to be the commands to use to save the results but how to save the test result file that shows on the screen. There is no file that looks like STOPT. bat on either of the diagnostic floppy disks.

aaah i get it now

mark.p, Dec 23, 3:37am
Finally! !

0800xford, Dec 23, 3:37am
i know, it took you long enough.

olack, Dec 23, 9:58pm
mark. p 100% thank you. Now at a screen LST C:/*. *, 1 of 68, Used: 4683K, Free: 11580K , then a list all the diagnostic files and at the bottom is the ddgui. txt which is what I think I want to copy to a floppy disk. The command I have on the screen is labelled DIAG C:\> and if I enter A: it seems to want to become DIAG A:\>. When the DDGUI. TXT file is selected and typecopy ddgui. txtmessage appears, File not found 0 file(s) copied . The file I want is DDGUI. TXT . Can I copy the file to the diskette?

olack, Dec 23, 10:00pm
ok, so I looked at the link, and typedcopy>ddgui. txt and I am told filename(s) required.

mark.p, Dec 24, 12:53am
While in C:\ try "copy ddgui. txt a:" without quotes. Assuming there's enough room on the floppy it should copy over.

ok, will try later, thank you. C: is a ram drive for the diagnostics. To make things easy I have web cammed the results on anothe pc. Have a Very Merry Christmas.

mark.p, Dec 24, 3:54am
You're welcome. You have a good xmas as well eh.

commandline tools still have their uses in this day and age. Must be some setup you have there ;).

olack, Dec 24, 7:30am
I ran the command as from the A: drive and I see there is a 0 file copied to the floppy, then changed the command to the C: drive and it copied. Fantastic, thank you. . . . . I think I ate your mince tart.

mark.p, Dec 24, 7:36am
Lol "copy c:ddgui. txt a:" or just "copy c:ddgui. txt" on the a: would have worked too.
