A quick guide to getting started in SpecBAS
==The BASICs for new users==
Commands can be stored into memory by pre-fixing them with a line number, they are arranged by line number to form a program. The program currently stored in memory will be displayed at the top of the window. More than one command can be stored on one line, or executed from the command line, by separating them with a
": " colon. For example, enter the following program:
10 PRINT "Hello World"
20 PRINT "Goodbye": PRINT "World"
This should now be stored in memory, and displayed at the top of the window. To execute a program, enter the command
> RUN. To save a program to disk, enter > SAVE "filename" . To retrieve a saved program, enter > LOAD "filename" . The command > NEW will erase a program from memory. Individual lines can be erased by entering their line number alone ( to erase line 20, simply enter > 20 ) .
