Rebooting Atari with Fujinet by using B key in main menu

I know that pressing the Option key will reboot the Atari. That's expected behavior. However, if I forget that I'm using the Fujinet and not my Ultimate Cart, I'll press the letter of the directory to go to that directory. That works on my Ultimate Cart setup. On Fujinet, normally it does nothing. That's fine. However, if I press the "B" key, my Atari will reboot. I've done this a number of times when testing Bible Baseball and the Atari will reboot just as if I pressed the Option key.

 

@tschak909 @mozzwald - Why?

B = BOOT, it's just another hotkey to boot. I spose we could remove that since everyone uses OPTION. Interesting comment in the code:

 

  case 'B': // Taken from original config. What is that checking for?
    mount_and_boot();

I thought that might be the case. It only bites me when I forget and try to enter the letter of the folder in order to get into that directory. I know Fujinet doesn't work that way, but I'm used to doing this on Ultimate Cart and I get bit when Fujinet reboots when I was only halfway done setting up the disk slots. However, I don't know if other people use this hotkey. At minimum, it should be on the menu. That would remind me not to press "B".

Ah I love when I forget to take out "questions to myself" when I make them in code 🙂 

 

The original config always had 'B' even though it didn't show it on the screen (https://github.com/FujiNetWIFI/fujinet-config/blob/3d9120b7d48f3a52ceb524a4446d189c72310c8f/src/diskulator_hosts.c#L311)

 

When I first ported things to the new "config-adam" framework I didn't know what everything was doing yet, so I wasn't sure if 'B' was a literal 'B' or if it was a special key or joystick or something.. especially because it wasn't displayed on the screen as an option. Hence the question to myself "what is this checking for?" 🙂
