IECHost: write features being worked at

As I commented previously, I finished the work required on the IECHost firmware to execute DOS commands.
This means I can now roll out options such as Delete file, Validate and Format disk, all of which are useful to get out of trouble should things go wrong.

IECHost: write options being worked at

As the counterpart is available in the IECHost firmware I will also allow users to issue custom commands through the command channel, a bit like it was done back in the day with something along these lines:

OPEN 15,8,15,"<command>":CLOSE15

An extended example could be renaming a file:

OPEN 15,8,15
PRINT#15,"R:NEW NAME=OLD NAME"
CLOSE 15

The fun is just about to begin! Stay tuned!
