Hi David

SAVFs have some signature stuff at the head - of course, they are in EBCDIC - but there should be some commonality amongst them - I look at them in Textpad in hex format sometimes.

I looked at 4 of them and find at position x1085 this string - QSRDSSPC - and at position 21 I see the model of the machine on which the SAVF was created, I assume. There's other stuff that seems to be the same across the 4, other stuff seems to be size overall or number of rows, whatever.

Now that is just to see if they ARE a SAVF. Not sure about the 2nd half of your question.

Folks:

Does anyone know if there is a way to look at a file on a PC and determine if it is a savefile that was (theoretically) downloaded from the i?

Thanks!
