Manual n° 2
Note for AMSTRAD users
The AtLast I database program needs a minimum TPA of 52K. On
unexpanded AMSTRAD computers it will therefore run only
under CP/M Plus.
You will need to set up a key definition file for SETKEYS to
make best use of the keyboard commands. The file ATLAST.KEY
contains some example settings. Please note that the ESC
key, for instance, will not generate the escape code until
it has been set up. To set the keys, enter the CP/M command:
On the CPC6128, the BIOS status line is enabled. AtLast
therefore uses a 24x80 display.
3. Setting up operating discs
Unless you have a second disc drive, you will need to
operate with two separate disc sides, one to contain the
DBDEF code files (COM + 00?) and temporary database
definition files and the other to contain the DBUSE code
files (COM + 00?) and the full database. In normal use, you
will only need the DBUSE disc. The DBDEF disc will only be
necessary when defining or editing the database definition.
If you have two drives, you will normally operate with the
code files on one drive and the database files on the other.
4. Data space
With either two disc drives, or a 'memory' (M:) drive, you
can use the whole of a disc for your database(s). If you
have only a single 180K drive, then you will have about 90K
free for your database.
