What is COMPU.DAT?

It's important to keep track of and to define the various file types. .DAT is the file type found is the LIF disc archives. The SWAP archive contains LIF files that have been extracted from the disc archives. The tool that extracted the files leaves the 32-byte LIF file header prepended to the data and file extensions have been defined for those file types:
http://ftp.ftp.hpmuseum.org/lif/swap/0readme
However, the tool converted the LIF1 text files to DOS text files and removed the file header, so the *.t71 files are really DOS text, as if it wasn't confusing enough.

Is COMPU.DAT the LIF disc image you created using HPDir? That's how I started. Notice I copied the file into the 71 from :2, the first emulated mass storage device.

I have no idea what I did wrong the first and second times. Anyway thanks again to both of you for all your help. The text file is 46848 bytes and the Basic file 32670 bytes

Great news, glad it's working.

Did you make some changes to the program? I ask because your resulting program size is slightly different than what Dave and I both got, and I'd expect the BASIC file to be the exact same if there were no changes, even though the '71 Text file size could vary as explained earlier.

I made no changes so its still a bit of a mystery, I am going to go back over the whole process from the beginning to put together a NOOBS method for using the PIL-BOX. I still have to make the COMPU_LS examples scan, you will get it next week

Dave asked what COMPU.DAT file was, that was the file produced by the alihdr32 program
