[IntyBASIC] Creating and printing packed strings

Recommended Posts

Heres a quick and dirty example of using an assembly language macro to create a packed string and a function to display it on screen. The string can contain upper and lower case letters, digits etc. and is restricted to the first 8 foreground colours for the GROM font.





The source code:-



The ROM:-



If you put the ROM into a hex file editor you can see that the strings are packed in a human readable format.


Any questions or problems, let me know.




@nanochess: Feel free to include the example in the next release of IntyBASIC.
