The Cassette Menu
The Cassette Menu is the third part of the File
Menu; it contains the following menu items :

If a zip file contains more than one cas image, a
dialog with a list of all tapes will be shown.

The user can also create a new empty cas file by

feature) will remember where you performed the
eject last. (Just like the real data recorder).

automatically the tape after insertion.

remembers last used position and will try to
continue from there.It depends on you to check or
no this option.
