DEFAULT_DEVICE

Syntax DEFAULT_DEVICE devicename$
Location Turbo Toolkit

This command can be used in a similar way to PROG_USE and DATA_USE. It sets the default device (up to 31 characters), for the following Turbo Toolkit commands:

  • CHARGE,
  • EXECUTE,
  • EXECUTE_A,
  • EXECUTE_W
  • LINK_LOAD,
  • LINK_LOAD_A,
  • LINK_LOAD_W.

It has no effect on any other commands.

Example

For a series of linked programs, you may want to use the following in a boot file:

DEFAULT_DEVICE win1_PROGS_

Each program could call another by using:

EXECUTE_W program2_task

NOTE 1

Prior to v3d27, this command only supported 5 characters (although prior to v2.00 no error was reported if more than 5 characters were used - the command simply ignored the additional characters).

NOTE 2

As from v1.26, you do not need to pass the device name as a string, for example:

DEFAULT_DEVICE flp1_

CROSS-REFERENCE

PROG_USE.
