2024-03-02: The wiki ran out of disk space, so things were not working. This has been resolved by adding another 5GB of quota ;-) Thanks to Tim Lindner for reporting the issues. 2020-05-17: If a page gives you an error about some revision not being found, just EDIT the page and the old page should appear in the editor. If it does, just SAVE that and the page should be restored. OS-9 Al (talk) 12:22, 17 May 2020 (CDT)

Despite what it says in some parts of the Color Computer Disc manual, the SAVEM command which is used to save machine language program. will NOT work if you use hexadecimal numbers.

Tandy's ·Color Computer Disc System' manual, on page 61, says that, just as in the tape versions, you must specify starting, ending and execute addresses in order to save machine language programs. It then adds: "Use the hexadecimal numbers for all these addresses."

Don't do it that way. It just won't work. Nor will it work if you use the "&H" prefix to decimal numbers, either. Just use the addresses in plain old, ordinary, run-of-the-mill decimal numbers (base 10 for the technically-minded).

This tidbit should save you quite of a bit of time and a lot of frustration.
