Here is the final version of the Program Launcher “SQUIRT”. This version has some additions, corrections and added a launcher when you type “BYE”. The previous version was called just “FileSelector.po”.
Squirt can navigate directories with ease and minimum keystrokes.
Squirt can launch system, binary and Applesoft programs.
Squirt can view text, source and Mousetext screen files.
Squirt can view bitmap fonts.
Squirt can view hi-res and dbl-hi-res graphics screens.
Squirt can automatically recognize the difference between a binary graphics
file, a binary text file, a binary program file and a binary font file.
The maximum size of a binary game that can load at $800 is $B2FF (45823 bytes).
When viewing a dbl-hi-res graphics screen, and the screen does not look right,
press Ctrl-A to switch Main and Aux screen memories.
A binary file that has text may be recognized as a graphics screen file if the
start address is $2000 or $4000 and the file size is $1FF8 or $2000. To view
as a text file, save the file with a different file size.
