=====Accessing files with no extension===== //by Jon Ripley, May 2006//\\ \\ When using **OPENIN**, **OPENUP** and **OPENOUT** to create or access files that do not have a file extension the default action of BBC BASIC is to append a //.bbc// file extension. To create or access files with no file extension you must add a full stop to the file name.\\ \\ To **OPENIN**, **OPENUP** or **OPENOUT** a file called **MyFile** use:\\ hfile% = OPENIN "MyFile." hfile% = OPENOUT "MyFile." hfile% = OPENUP "MyFile." The same applies when accessing files with no extension using a //**star**// command or **OSCLI**:\\ \\ *DISPLAY MyFile. *COPY MyOldFile. MyNewFile. The default file extensions appended by the //**star**// commands or **OSCLI** when none is supplied are as follows:\\ \\ | *CHDIR (*CD)\\ | none\\ | | *COPY\\ | .BBC\\ | | *DELETE (*DEL, *ERASE)\\ | .BBC\\ | | *DIR\\ | .BBC\\ | | *DISPLAY\\ | .BMP\\ | | *EXEC\\ | .BBC\\ | | *GSAVE (*SCREENSAVE)\\ | .BMP\\ | | *LIST / *TYPE\\ | .BBC\\ | | *LOAD / *SAVE\\ | .BBC\\ | | *LOCK / *UNLOCK\\ | .BBC\\ | | *MKDIR (*MD)\\ | none\\ | | *PLAY\\ | .MID\\ | | *RENAME (*REN)\\ | .BBC\\ | | *RMDIR (*RD)\\ | none\\ | | *RUN\\ | none\\ | | *SPOOL / *SPOOLON\\ | .BBC\\ |
