The Sharp can take a filename as a parameter when using cassettes to store BASIC programs.

For example: BSAVE "AA" works.

If you save more than one program on a tape, BLOAD with a parameter will search the tape for the matching filename. BLOAD without a parameter will load the next program on the tape no matter what it's called.

You may still want to write down and use the program counter to position the tape manually since it takes a long time to search the tape for a program that's stored at the end of a 30 minute tape!

Thanks for pointing out the feature. I'll put it in the manual. Do you think these instructions function the same and have the same parameters as corresponding commands in older machines (like the E500 or PC-1500)?
