This program can be used to convert an Oric BASIC program to and from TAPE binary format. Technicaly this means that instead of using the Oric BASIC line based text editor, you can edit an ORIC BASIC program entirely in a comfortable text editor, and then convert it automaticaly to a tape file format that can later be loaded on the emulator -or played on a real Oric-.
To transform a binary file as a texte file:
%OSDK%\bin\Bas2Tap [switches] source_file destination_file
With the -t2b switch Bas2Tap converts a binary encoded tape to text format:
-t2b tapefile textfile
The -b2t[0|1] switch convert a text file to binary encoded tape format
-b2t0 textfile tapefile => Generate a TAPE file that do not auto run after the loading is finished (you have to manualy use the RUN command) -b2t1 textfile tapefile => Generate a TAPE file that auto run after the loading is finished
The -color[0|1] switch set if the REM and ' statements should be colorized or not
