Save and load: S1% (Disc version)

Name: S1% [View in context] Type: Variable Category: Save and load Summary: The drive and directory number used when saving or loading a commander file Deep dive: Commander save files.
The drive part of this string (the "0") is updated with the chosen drive in the QUS1 routine, but the directory part (the "E") is fixed. The variable is followed directly by the commander file at NA%, which starts with the commander name, so the full string at S1% is in the format ":0.E.JAMESON", which gives the full filename of the commander file.
