Use in Direct mode (NAS-SYS U command).

As NAS-DIS asks for memory addresses, unpredictable things may happen to the printer. This is because the subroutine outputs an ESC code, which the printer takes as the start of a control code. The cure:

– Either turn the printer momentarily off when NAS-DIS signals “Go?”
– Or change these memory locations in NAS-DIS:

CD00   00   NOP
CDO1   00   NOP
CD02   00   NOP


Change printer reflection:

0F04    DF 4C C9    SCAL "L RET

ZEAP U command will now list the source file, and ZEAP A command will, with option 04, give assembly listing.


Use in direct mode (NAS-SYS U command). It is possible to turn printing on and off from BASIC with DOKE statements:

Printer on – DOKE 3187,1912
Printer off – DOKE 3187,1913
