Hi Michael, thanks for your endorsement - I'm glad to hear you find the manuals worth reading, that愀 a reward after the time/effort it takes to put them together.
You speak well about the value of the documentation, even for the developers after a while it's a lifesaver and sure it turns enigmas into useful tools. In fact I've spent the last couple of days working on the POWERCL manual update, now ready to go as well.
The posted QRG's should be reasonably up-to-date, but sorely missing are the manuals for the AMC/OSX, ToolBox, and RamPage modules. This is now more evident since the latter two are practically included in the POWERCL_4B version, (alas this is the "secret" about the additional two banks) so I guess I'll have to catch up as well.
Good question about the IMDB vs. the POWERCL internal ROM table. The answer is basically that the POWERCL table doesn't use the IMDB at all, so you're right: your new entries added to the IMDB won't be included in ROMLIB or CLLIB listings.
This makes it compatible with all versions of YFNS, even older ones not using the IMDB - but unfortunately has the shortcoming you point out. Out of curiosity, which new modules are you adding to the IMDB? Would be great to have them included in the released version for the community at large.
