You probably know you can make multiple saves to tape simply by enclosing the CSAVE command in a loop. And, it’s a good idea to do this because there is no way to verify a tape write and if there is a tape problem, your copy can be lost.

Sometimes, though, those saves are long and you just sit there wondering "where am I?"

Here's a way to figure it out: Just put a counter in your direct command. Then, you'll know what CSAVE you are on. The direct command line looks like this:

FOR X=1 TO 3:PRINT "ON SAVE"X:CSAVE "filename":NEXT X

If you want to save more or less than three programs, change the three in the X-loop. If you want to put space between the individual saves, add the following after the last colon above

:MOTOR ON:FOR Y=1 TO 750:NEXT Y:MOTOR OFF:
