I also use HPDir to copy binary files to/from LIF images (see Post #2). You can experiment with this technique without a PIL-Box by using Emu71 and ILPer.

..and I don't as I mentioned in post #100 I use HP lifutil to convert the files from DOS text format to LIF1 and write them onto LIF format diskettes which suits me fine. In you post #101 you implied that the MEM / DMP files as distributed, conform to TEXT files as documented in the 71B manuals however the manual reference you quoted only mentions the existence of TEXT files and does not go into details about the layout of records in the file, but I know from my experience DOS text files are not the same 71B TEXT files and conversion is required. I determined what the difference is by my own investigation, largely by examining hex dumps of both file formats.

My point in stating " The .MEM files as distributed are DOS text files ie the records are terminated with a CRLF sequence which is not compatible with the 71B's idea of a text file ." is the MEM files that are in the ROM image package that I downloaded are all DOS format text files and there needs to be conversion done to make the files usable on a 71B.
