MWBASIC Function Hint: L800C - DGOS_VDUOUT - someone - 24-04-2020

If you're writing your own machine code program to use the L800C_DGOS_VDUOUT function be aware that it does not support the TAB ASCII code to move across the screen to the next TAB stop.
The only supported control codes are:
  • DEL
  • BS
  • LF
  • CR
  • CTRL_L
  • CTRL_N
  • CTRL_O
  • BEL

NOTE: ESC is used to toggle the screen adjustment function

This differs from the Disk System Boot ROM LE00C_CONOUT function which is an 80x24 terminal emulator that does support the TAB ASCII code.
