SCRIP converts the PC-2 into a mini-typewriter, to type memos, explanatory notes, labels, etc. during program development and/or execution, and to experiment with an apparently new area of pattern development by the use of sizes larger that the usual CSIZE9. The program is designed for up to 91 lines with up to 18 characters per line; however, the user can also select any size from 1 to 255. (For an illustration of this facility, run the Sizes Demonstration program — idef) (3D.)
Thanks to Mr. Norlin Rober, Master Sleuth, the use of &79F (Dec 31220) makes it easy to develop some interesting and unusual patterns with these larger size characters.
