P2, Taqoz V2.8: GETTEXT a fast variant of SAVETEXT

Hi, perhaps this is useful for others.
SAVETEXT in V2.8 can capture text from terminal and store it as a file on SD-card.
Unfortunately as there is no handshake, it cannot wait for the writing of the SD card, when a sector buffer has to be written. This makes problems for longer texts.

gettext will capture into a ram buffer first and then write to SD-card.
End of transfer can be ESC or €=128. Don't forget the RW!
RW gettext filename
Will start capture. You can then
fload filename

Enjoy!
