Joshua Bell 7bbc96924b Add SETUP.SYSTEM and build .SETUP files
This is an alternate approach proposed by Sean Nolan in 1987 which
allows placing the driver files in a subdirectory of the root volume
to avoid clutter and file ordering issues. Only a SETUP.SYSTEM file is
needed at the top level, and the drivers go into a SETUPS/ directory.

All drivers here (except QUIT.SYSTEM and SETUP.SYSTEM itself) have
alternate forms built into the /DRIVERS/SETUPS/ directory as XYZ.SETUP
instead of XYZ.SYSTEM. If you choose to use SETUP.SYSTEM, place these
.SETUP files in your SETUPS/ directory. The naming doesn't matter -
any SYS or BIN file can be used - but this convention makes
distribution easier. These .SETUP files do **NOT** chain to the next
file - that's handled by SETUP.SYSTEM itself.

  • DATE
    • Prints the current ProDOS date/time, to verify the time is set and updating. Run from the BASIC prompt: -DATE
    • This invokes the ProDOS quit handler immediately. It can be used as the last in a chain of "driver" installers to invoke the program selector, e.g. if you want to also keep BASIC.SYSTEM in your root directory but not launch it.
    • Waits for a fraction of a second before invoking the next driver file. Useful in case the log messages from the driver installers go by too quickly!
    • Moves the current volume to the end of DEVLST. Niche, but useful in some circumstances.
