In the last issue of INMC8O News there is a very interesting article about converting
Zeap 1.0 to Nas-Sys operation. I would like to obtain a copy of the patch tape
mentioned in this article, but I cannot find any other reference to DJ Software who
Please can anyone give me their address?
Ed. – Sorry, we don’t know. Any offers ?

The last issue (INMC 80-1) of the newsletter exceeded all expectations (including the
one that it might not come at all !). Personally, I would not complain if the
subscription was increased, as it represents such good value. "Piranha" is worth the
annual subscription alone. Come to that, so is the modification to set the WNascom 2
cassette interface running at 2400 Baud! (Eat your hearts out T**dy, P*t etc.).
With reference to INMC 80 Iss.1, may I suggest the following changes to M.Taylor’s
plotting routine. In general it is convenient to have the origin on the bottom left
rand corner. Also a MOVE not LINE command may be desired.
The following changes are proposed:
65508 IF T#1 THEN X1=A:Y1=*B:RETURN
65509 IF T=1 THEN X2=A:Y2=B
65510 IF Xi#X2 AND Y1=Y2 THEN SET(X2,Y2) :RETURN
65519 SET(X,Y+Y1) :NEXT:X1=X2:Y1=Y2: RETURN
This modification allows the user to move the cursor (or pointer) across the screen
and draw lines from any two points. The following variables are used:
A – X-coordinate (horizontal)
B – Y-coordinate (vertical)
T – (=1 Move to coordinate, =2 Line to coordinate)
<First command must be a move>
