Dear Sirs,

Firstly, let me point out yet another sinful error in the GREAT “NASCOM 2” book of WISDOM. Nowhere is there mention of the ‘MO’ error (MISSING OPERATOR) (There is in my manual, as ‘MISSING OPERAND’ – Ed.) which occurs when an argument is missing from an equation. Incidentally a list of error codes can be found inside the Basic Rom at locations E2B9 through E2DD.

This is an OCR’d version of the scanned page and likely contains recognition errors.
