    Default Coco 3 512K memory test program?

    Hi everyone, is there a simple Coco 3 memory test program which tests the 512K upgrade?

    Something which can be loaded of cassette or disk would be ideal.

    What do people suggest?

    Ian.

    I know we had one supplied by the company when I worked for Radio Shack, but, I was never able to find an image of it in either cassette or diskette format.

    There might be something in the old Color Computer magazines that are archive around the 'net.

    Perhaps someone was even dumb enough to type it in and save it somewhere.

    Ian,
    Yes, I have a simple test program for the 512K CoCo3. I will email you a disk image later today.

    I could use a comprehensive one for the CoCo 3 (or any CoCo for that matter) as I'm having a pile of them dumped on me for repairs.

    Thanks

    Did anyone ever post a memory test program, or a pointer to one?

    I have a new-to-me CoCo 3 and I'd like to perform a comprehensive memory test on it, just for peace of mind.

    Thanks!
