Although slightly off topic, I have linked this topic to the ZX/Spectrum forum too (and provided a Speccy example as well as a couple of bits from here) to see what the 'equivalent' is on said platform. :) Said topic 'over there' can be found here for the curious.

For me at least it will be interesting to compare or see what is done.

On topic I had an idea of printing random teletext graphic blocks at random locations on the screen ( simply PRINTTAB(RND etc etc ) , but it tended to add a space after each one, despite trying a backspace code. That may of been quite interesting to watch.

Wow. What a pleasant find. This is a nice suite of things to test my fork of Brandy BASIC (a BBC BASIC implementation) - and almost all of the pure BASIC examples work fine (the chaos one crashes the interpreter) - and even that one poking MODE 7 screen memory works after a small change (using &FFFF7C00 as the base screen memory address) on my development tree.

Edit: Fixed bug in PLOT routine. Thanks!
