Hi Ermanno. You want to be able to list a BASIC program to a text file on the PC? It's possible using the serial terminal feature of the emulator, but takes a couple of steps:

(1) Load the program into the emulator.
(2) In the emulator, select Terminal > Serial Terminal from the menu. This should display a second window.
(3) Select Terminal > Start Terminal Log from the menu. This will display a Windows file dialog where you specify the file to list the program to. By default the file will have a .trm extension, but it's just a plain text file.
(4) At the Cortex prompt in BASIC, type UNIT 2<Return>. Everything that appears on the screen will now also be sent to the serial terminal window. And everything sent to the serial terminal window will be captured in the log file.
(5) At the Cortex prompt in BASIC, type LIST<Return>. You should be able to work out what's going to happen.
(6) Select Terminal > Stop Terminal Log from the menu. The plain text log file now contains the program listing.
(7) Typing UNIT -2<Return> at the BASIC prompt will stop output going to the serial terminal window.

I'm expecting someone to point out a far easier way to do it that I've missed!
