Notice. New forum software under development. It's going to miss a few functions and look a bit ugly for a while, but I'm working on it full time now as the old forum was too unstable. Couple days, all good. If you notice any issues, please contact me.

@Peter
A stupid question: what does mm.info(flash size)?
When I type print mm.info(flash size) it returns 0
I know it would report the size of flash memory, but what memory?
I use the 5.07..07b28 version.
Did I discover a new bug or is the flash memory an optional thing?
The flash slots do work and the A: drive also.

mm.info(flash) returns the flash slot currently running a program - normally 0
mm.info(option flash size) returns the size of the flash memory chip

Manual page 74 says to use the former.
When did the syntax change?





...or the manual needs updating.

EDIT: Option Flash Size crashes the PM, but it could be cos I am using a version below, so I will update and try again.

Thanks... so it becomes the time that the manual has to be updated, because a lot has changed.
