Can you run it from an emulator to check it?

Well, I guess I'll have to buy a tape and transfer both thequest
which I typed in out of another Rainbow and check. I get an FC
error trying to run thequest off of my drivewire volume. I am

everything. I may have made some typos, but I can't check
because Rainbow check plus isn't working.
