v4.0.2, I see you added a --debug option. Looked on wiki for the .docs on this. Didn't see it. Did I miss it?
I see that you added the support to the OP_READ command. That is now working as well for legacy DW3 support.
Using DW3 & 4 as a test platform to the FAT SD CoCo Interface. I see the results graphically, I can click on the .dsk to get the drive. How can I tell what is being transmitted/received from the packet level? Basically the LOGGING feature that DW3 provided.
Currently all code is working on the new interface, should be able to do a DIR/LOADon a FATx formatted SD plugged in to the CoCo here shortly.
Thanks for the update and FAST turn.
