Memory Map

The original QDOS memory map is shown below. This is still valid on the old black boxes, but Trump Cards, Gold Cards, Super Gold Cards, Aurora etc may/will have changed things about. I currently have no information on these devices so I cannot document them here. I have requested details using the QL newsgroup and as information arrives, I shall add it here.
