Nope, we have the same edition. I'm just showing you the content of
env.file (you could just list it) that the directions are saying to
change. As Mannequin indicated, the Tandy instructions tell edit to move
forward three lines "+3".
You need to type "+3" without any leading spaces and then ENTER. You
should see the E: prompt and after making your entry.
The Edit command c/R/*R/[ENTER] will change the line to
In short, now that I know that the error you were talking about is an
Edit error, all I can suggest is study the syntax for Edit. Further,
make sure that env.file is indeed in the sys directory. After starting
Edit with the line
enter the command
to make sure that you see the contents of the env.file file. Just in
case you have forgotten the convention, don't include the 's when you
type the above.
