7.4.1 - Creating VDisks

You may notice that no FORMAT or NEWDISK command appears on the FLEX disks. This is because the disks are created outside of FLEX, under the Host OS. This is natural because the Host OS is the home of the virtual disk files, not FLEX. The disk formatting utility command MAD (Make A Disk) is provided and has the following parameters:

[optional]
---------------------
MAD <HostFileName> <FLEXDiskName> <FLEXDiskNumber> <Tracks> <Sectors>

HostFileName is the name that will be given to the virtual disk under the Host OS. FLEXDiskName is the name that will be given to the virtual disk under FLEX. FLEXDiskNumber is the volume number under FLEX. Tracks is the number of tracks that the disk will have; Sectors is the number of sectors per track the disk will have. These two parameters together determine the size of the disk in the following manner:

(TRACKS - 1) x SECTORS x 252 = User Data Bytes On Disk
