Hi
Just a quicky. I have an Apple IIE clone that seems ok. However I can't get
the PR6 to do anything. The drives boot ok from power up and CTL/Reset.
Catalog works as does the run command but nothing from PR6 or either in6.
Is PR6 an Apple II disk only command.

I think the command you want in order to boot from slot 6 is: PR#6 .

Hi is that PR, then the hash key, and then 6, Ie PR#6 not PR6.
Because my IIE has two upper case options for the number
3 they are the and #. I can select the but haven't found a way
to get at the #.

Is there a switch under the keyboard? Its been 20+ years, but I'm sure the IIe's at school had one which switched display between a # and pound stirling symbol. I suspect what is displayed doesn't make any difference though.

Hi
Yes there is. Didn't know what it was for. Will retry using this switch.

Yeah, the proper syntax to boot from a specific slot is PR#6 or PR#5 or PR#7 depending on what slot # your disk controller card is installed in.

I have forgotten most of the Apple II commands. The problem is that # is not
used much in the UK. In America you use it frequently with numbers and
include it in any statements. In the UK if # is seen in a document with a
number, it just means that the number it refers to is absolute and not to be
mistaken for anything else. # is used just to draw your attention to
something. PR#6 to me just means PR and the number 6. I know the Apple II
instructions shows # in the command. If I had been on an Apple II I would
have tried both ways, its just that I did not know how to get at the #. Now I
know about the IIEs hidden switch I will try again.
