FreeDOS help system (hhstndrd 1.0.8 en)[tickle]

Command: tickle

TICKLE is a read-ahead for LBACACHE. This gives extra speed to floppy disk drives.


tickle [/CHS] [/LBA] [/?]


/CHS Old harddisk read-ahead on (CHS mode - Cylinder/Head/Sector). /LBA New harddisk read-ahead on (LBA mode - Logical Block Adressing). /? Shows the help.


TICKLE reads the whole floppy track at once when you first read anything in a track - this is faster because the floppy has to revolve less often. Floppy read-ahead is always on. Load LBACACHE with FLOP option enabled first! Do not LOADHIGH TICKLE, risk of data loss / DMA problems!
