The FMT command performs correctly except in the case FMT
15,n, where the correct number of figures is displayed, but the
mantissa is rounded to one decimal place less than it should be.
example of this occurs in Chapter 4, where the result of
FMT 15,2: PRINT 567.988
actually gives 5.70E+02, not 5.68E+02 as it should.
The use of the EVAL function on a NUL$ has a catastrophic

As stated both device 1 and device 2 may be used for a

Our daisy wheel printer insists on treating the
exponentiation symbol (up arrow) as a 3/4 – you may find

In Chapter 3 page 19 the assignment LETAA=1+2*3/4 should of
course assign the value 2.5, not 4.5, to AA.
The format of the IOLIST given in Chapter 4 in the first 50
copies of the manual is incorrect – the input and output
devices are transposed. The list should read:
In Chapter 4 the example program given under the
description of SEP should use the variable MNTH, not MONTH
