Remark: This article describes the BASIC command DLOAD in Commodore BASIC V3.5 or higher.

Type: Command
General Programming-Syntax: DLOAD  [<filename>] [,D<drive number>] [[,]ON U<device number>]

DLOAD is a BASIC 3.5/7.0 command that loads a BASIC program from disk into current memory. (Use LOAD to load programs from tape.) The program must be specified by a filename of up to 16 characters. DLOAD assumes device number 8, drive 0.

<filename> may be an asterisk (*) to load the first file on the device.

Examples[edit]

Searches the disk for the program "BANKRECS" and LOADs it.

DLOAD "BANKRECS"

LOADs a program from disk whose name is stored in the variable A$. An error message is given if A$ is empty. Remember, when a variable is used as a filename, it must be enclosed in parentheses.

DLOAD (A$)

 

DLOAD "SPIEL1"

Load the program SPIEL1 from disk, which works in disk drive 0 with the device number 8.

DLOAD "*",U9

load the first program from disk, which works in disk drive 0 with the device number 8.

DLOAD "TOOL?",D1

load the first program, which is 5 chars long and contains the char string TOOL from drive 1 of a double floppy disk with the device number 8.

10 PRINT CHR$(147) "LOADING MAIN PROGRAM..."
20 PRINT "PLEASE, WAIT A MOMENT!"
30 A$ = "LOTTOSIM": GA=8: DR=0
