============================================================================

Architectures: Classic AMIGAs, E-UAE and WinUAE.
------------------------------------------------

  MINIMUM Requirements Are:-
  --------------------------

       68EC020 CPU and 2MB RAM total, example, a standard A1200(HD).
       WinUAE Version 1.5.3 minimum. 
       Standard OS3.0x install or better.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------

History.
--------

01-03-2013.
Version 0.00.10:- Original upload to AMINET...

----------------------------------------------------------------------------

To install just download the "Binary_Write.shell.txt" file and rename it to
"Binary_Write.shell" without the quotes. Drag this file into the C:
volume and...

From a Shell prompt inside the C: volume:-

Some Prompt> execute Binary_Write.shell<RETURN/ENTER>

And away you go...

----------------------------------------------------------------------------

This is just a simple DEMO to show how to generate four simple binary files
using a default AMIGA OS 3.0x minimum on a stock AMIGA A1200(HD).
(This is not tested on AMIGA OS 2.0x but may still work.)

The first is a 256 byte file of all the bytes from decimal 255 down to 0.
It is saved to the T: volume as T:BINARY.FILE and will be lost unless you
drag it somewhere else if the power is turned off.

The other three are saved as CLS, BEEP and BOTH inside the C: volume.
CLS and BEEP are 1 byte in size and BOTH is 2 bytes in size. They are
useful as an error beep and a simple clear screen file. They are used
as:-

Some Prompt> Type C:CLS<RETURN/ENTER>
Some Prompt> Type C:BEEP<RETURN/ENTER>

For a clear screen or a beep as an example...

Some Prompt> Type C:BOTH<RETURN/ENTER>

Gives a beep first followed by a clear screen in one command...

Enjoy finding simple solutions to often very difficult problems...

    Testing Evaluation:-
    --------------------

    All WinUAE, E-UAE and Classic AMIGA test conditions were/are running
    standard OS3.0x/OS3.1x and using standard ~topaz 8~ fonts throughout.

    I have no idea what strange configuration setups will create so refer
    to the ~The Legal Stuff~ above.
