BASIC file link
In order to make it work, you will need to amend the "MimeMap" file. This may be in !Internet.files if you use the Acorn setup; or !Voyager.Stack.Files if you use Voyager.
Open the file, and look for the line:
application/riscos * * (in !Edit, the spaces will appear as "").
Just above that, enter the following:
application/basic BASIC FFB .bas .basic
and save the file.
If the MimeMap module is currently loaded, enter:
to cause the new settings to be read. Then test it by entering:
The reply should be something like:
*MimeMap .basic Mime type: application/basic, RISC OS file type: 0xffb Extensions: basbasic
Now, when you click on a .basic file, it will appear with the correct filetype, it won't be rendered, and it will be saved correctly.
