As a rule, it is always a good idea to make a backup of everything so you don't lose it due to the various problems that crop up with magnetic media.

In order to make a backup of a machine language tape, you need to use CSAVEM, but you also need some other information that isn't always easily available.

In the case of the Graphics Printer Driver we mentioned last month, you need this information to make the backup. That information, as in all CSAVEM's is the program's start, end and transfer addresses. To save you the trouble. of looking for it, the proper command for the 16K Driver is CSAVEM"FTFX16",15744, 16576,15744.

If you use that, you can make backup copies of the Driver.
