JiffyDOS and SD2IEC Command Quick Reference Card

Here’s a cheat sheet I printed up because I tend to forget less often used commands for the JiffyDOS DOS wedge. It also has some commands for the SD2IEC for changing and saving the default drive number.

4×6″ Formatted PDF:¬†JiffyDOS_Quick_Reference_Card.pdf

Text file: JiffyDOS Commands.txt Also, the text is wrapped so that the first list of function keys displays nicely on my 1541 Ultimate (and Ultimate 64) file viewer, so this text file can be dropped in the root of the SD card for quick access in the menu.

I printed this out and laminated it. Here are some pics.

Here’s the command list:

    The Display Directory command you listed is incorrect! The one you listed will scratch (delete) every file on the disk. Thanks a lot (NOT)!

    The Display Directory command should be: @$

      It took me a moment to figure out what you meant, since the display directory command is correctly listed as @$. Then I realized you were referring to the caption for F1. The caption was incorrect (an S instead of a $) but pressing F1 does not delete all the files. I can see where the confusion lies. I’ve fixed the text file and the PDF file. This has been in circulation for years and you were the first to notice the error. Thanks for reporting it.
