	*** FRZ (C64s saved-session FRoZen files)

** Document revision 1.1

  These files, similar in nature to  PC64's  .C64  files,  are  a  complete
memory dump of the 64K RAM, color RAM, and all I/O ports and CPU registers.
The only emulator  file  which  can  hold  FRZ  files  is  a  T64,  as  its
directory/filetype values allow for it. These files (up to C64s V2.0), when
converted to raw binaries, are 66806 bytes large.

  Bytes:$00000-00001: Load address (always $00 $00)
         00002-10001: Main 64k RAM ($0000-FFFF)
         10002-10401: Color RAM ($D800-DBFF)
         10402-10409: CPU registers (8 bytes) in the following order:
                       - PC (Program Counter, 2 bytes),
                       - SP (Stack Pointer, 2 bytes),
                       - A (Accumulator, 2 bytes)
                       - X/Y (X and Y registers, 2 bytes)
         1040A-10438: VIC-II ($D000, 47 bytes)
         10439-10455: SID ($D400, 29 bytes)
         10456-10465: CIA #1 ($DC00, 16 bytes)
         10466-10475: CIA #2 ($DD00, 16 bytes)
         10476-104F5: CPU Task data (128 bytes), containing:
                       - Shadow registers
                       - Emulation Registers

  Seeing as each emulator uses its own format for  its  "snapshot"  images,
there is no simple conversion method to take one snapshot (i.e. a PC64 .C64
file) and convert it to another emulator snapshot format (i.e. a  C64s  FRZ
file). The only commonalities would be the  main  64k  RAM  and  color  RAM
areas, whereas the rest of the file would be quite different.
