How to load a game using atari 8bit emulator
Ok..I found an emulator called xformer 8. when I start it up and select
atari 800 DOS..I get a ready prompt on the screen.
How do I load my game file, which is a CAS format. What command do i need to
give at the ready prompt to load the file?

Probably Xformer 8 won't load CAS files, I think.
You need Atari800WinPlus, will load CAS files.
The fact you get the READY prompt means you're
booting with BASIC, which you don't want to do
for most CAS files. There is another recent post
here that states how to load CAS files in A800WPlus.
To boot without BASIC, you need to hold OPTION
on a real computer at power on, but for Xformer, you need to turn off BASIC
This is no help w/ the CAS file load, but the Ready prompt attempting DOS
access might indicate that you did not boot the system w/ a DOS disk image
in drive 1.

Still using There 8bit system ?
I've been trying to use an Atari 800XL system, with
850 interface, and one of (1020 or 1025) as a printer, as
a "print server".
It seems if I send "long lines" however, I lose
characters, and get "garbage". I'm wondering if anyone
else has done this, and/or knows where source code exists.
I wrote a small LINUX program, to open a text file, and
echo 1 line at a time, sleeping 10 seconds in between lines.
It echos the line to the serial port on the PC ( /dev/ttyS0 ).
On the Atari 800XL, I open the "R1:" port, get characters...Anyone near southern oregon (medford) Using Atari 8bit #2

Hey you have a modern day Atari user group! :) Congratulations.
I used to have an Atari user like 15 minutes away, and that was cool. These
days our Atari community is vast, but rather than being in one city, we span
the most remote parts of the globe.

Several members of the (comp.sys.cbm) group have gotten
together to connect their 8bit machines to their broadband

having original BBS programs connected to the Internet.
Being able to dial from an 8bit machine and connect to
an 8bit machine has been acomplished.
I've been keeping a website record of these activities,
but since I actually owned/loved several 8bit computers
over the years, I thought I'd expand the website to
include other machines doing the same thing.

See comp.os.msdos.programmer for DOS-specific information, but the system()
part of your question is topical here.

Assuming you have a version of DOS on an ATR loaded...
The command(s) would be as follows.
Untokenized (bloated, plain text) save file: LIST"D:FILENAME.EXT"
Tokenized (considerably smaller): SAVE"D:FILENAME.EXT"
To load an untokenized file: ENTER"D: etc. etc...
For tokenized files: LOAD blah blah blah...
