Title: FILE FORMAT GLOSSARY FOR TOSEC
Post by: zx82 on November 14, 2011, 11:30:17 AM
Hi to All,
I write you to know if there is a file format glossary or more specific an emulator file format glossary or a TOSEC file format glossary. I know looking on google some of them, but other I don’t know what are they and find them on google sometimes can be a pain ass. I known that

ARK/BAC/SDA -> are compressed file formats
D64/D88/DSK/FDD/VDK -> floppy disks file formats
BAS/C10/CAS/CVZ/PTP/T77/TAP/WAV -> Tape file formats
BIN/ROM -> ROM dumps

A suggestion that will be nice is that the creator  of list put the file format information on it. I am sure that creator knows what kind of file is it.  For example on Commodore C64 - Games - Boulder Dash - [D64] (TOSEC-v2011-06-01_CM).dat at header.
