Altira emulator

Recommended Posts

In a text string that represents clear screen and the inverse version represents Bell (Ctrl-2)


You can print almost all of the control characters.

To get the function from a string you press Esc then the keystroke needed.

To get the symbol printed press Esc 3 times then the keystroke.

You can't really get the inverse Esc character since it would represent Return.  You can get the Esc normal symbol by pressing Esc 4 times inside an entered string.

To get the inverse you'd have to Poke it to screen memory.

I am looking how I can use the arrow symbol from atascii in my Altira emulator.


That character is "clear screen", and in emulators is mapped to the HOME key in PC keyboards. To get it in the Atari editor, you have to press ESC and then HOME.


Have Fun!
