Hi Glenn,

thanks a lot for your great work on all these games, it's awesome!
I know how to exit dos (just type exit) but how do I save and exit these games? (for example cruise for a corpse or any other dos game). It might be a stupid question, but I can't find it.
thanks in advance for your help.
Best regards from Belgium, Europe
Kenny
