What is $1 file?
Files with the $1 file extension contain HOBETA format data. This is a file that was created by the ZX Spectrum home computer, which ran on the Z80 CPU and had 64 kilobytes of RAM. This type of data contains ASCII text, probably an executable program written in BASIC. The contents of this kind of file are usually unknown because they were never meant to be opened by anyone else but the person who created it.
