NAME

       srec_spectrum - Spectrum file format

DESCRIPTION

       In  this  format,  bytes  are recorded as ASCII code with binary digits
       represented by 1s and 0s.  Each byte is preceeded by a decimal address.

       The file ends with a Control-C character (0x03).

   Size Multiplier
       In general, binary data will expand in sized by approximately 14  times
       when represented with this format (or 15 times on DOS or Windows).

       World[rq] to be loaded at address 0x0.
