[Coladam] Importing BASIC program listings into SmartBASIC

There is a DOS based program (which name escapes me at the moment) which can 
import text files directly onto ADAM disks...I transfered a number of basic 
files I had this way.

Ordinarily, however, you need an older computer, DOS and 360k drive in the 
PC to accomplish this.

If there aren't too many of them, email them to me and I'll take a whack at

Subject: [Coladam] Importing BASIC program listings into SmartBASIC

I have a bunch of BASIC programs that I have typed up into text files.
 I would like to be able to somehow get them into SmartBASIC without
manually retyping them all.  Is there a way, using ADAMEm, to either
import a text file into a 160K ADAM disk/tape image and then EXEC that
text file, or to just call up a SmartBASIC prompt, type NEW, and then
somehow "paste" the text of the listing in as though it was being
keyed in manually?

The "pasting the listing as though it was being keyed in manually"
method works with some Apple II emulators.  Given that most of the
BASIC program listing that I have typed up are Applesoft BASIC, I
figure most of them (save for those with complex PEEK, POKE, & CALL
routines) should work fine in SmartBASIC.  Just need a method for
getting them into SmartBASIC.
