Before you turn the page in disgust at this mammoth listing, let me just say this finger-wearing program is is well worth typing in.The character definer sent in by James CadwaIlader of Gosport, Hants, is one of the classiest you will see. Its ease of use and functions will shame many that have gone before.
Characters from 32 (the space) upwards can be defmed. When run the program displays a box with several characters. One of them is highlighted, and in the neighbouring box is its Ascii code. With the cursor keys you can scroll backwards or forwards through the character set.
Once you reach the character you want to redefine, press Enter or Return. A list of options will appear: C to continue, R to re-select , S to save and L to load. Pressing C draws the highlighted character in a large grid box on the top left of the screen.
Using a combination of spacebar , Delete and cursor keys, you can now design a new character. As you fiU or delete squares, the character will be displayed in mode-0 and mode-2 characters below the grid. Pressing Clear will wipe the grid to let you restart your design.
After finishing your character, press Tab to choose another character to design. Or you can load or save a complete character set.
