Booting


You start GoDot by typing the command: load "godot",8.

Without the file "godot" you cannot boot - neither after resetting the machine. "godot" has to execute important tasks:

Which drive you boot from is irrelevant. At least three other files will be loaded from the same drive: the character set ("god.set"), the kernel ("god.main"), and the graphics routines ("god.upmem"). Caution: if one of these files is missing GoDot won't run and end up resetting without any comment. The forth file to load is "god.ini", or the INI file typed in as a parameter to the initial LOAD command. If neither "god.ini" nor the other is found, GoDot starts using default settings (INI table).

You can check the current version of your software at any time.
