I was so happy with being able to make my Mimeo generate sound, and inspired by Corey's BASIC music demo of Twinkle Twinkle Little Star, I decided to make another music program in BASIC. So in the spirit of the holidays, I wrote an A1 BASIC program to play "Merry Christmas" and draw a picture of a Christmas tree.
So I haven't been able to execute it yet, since I'm not at home right now. What I have is the completed BASIC program in a .txt file on my Windows 8 laptop.
So I'd like to get it into an audio file format, so I can load it on my Mimeo.
I have POM running on my laptop, and I am able to load BASIC from a memory dump. I can go into BASIC, and type a program. I would like to dump the memory containing the program to a text file, and then send that to Mike W's "toaiff" program that I got working on my LINUX machine. Phew!
The problem is, I can't find the memory where BASIC is storing my program. I set LOMEM to 768, which should be at $0300, but I can't see it anywhere in POM. It's all zeros. I tried spot checking 0300.0310, 0400.0410, 0500.0510, all the way to 0900.0910. Again, all zeros.
I can also E2B3R back into BASIC, and my program's still there. And yes, I did set the POM to run as an 8K machine by pressing CTRL-E.
Can someone tell me where I'm going wrong?
I know I can connect my PC to my Mimeo, and upload it directly using Mike W's PS/2-serial adapter, but I don't have any way right now of saving directly from my Mimeo, so I'd rather just convert it to an AIFF so I can load it anytime.
