The ZX Spectrum BASIC doesn't (ordinarily) let you print on lines 23 and 24 to allow for user input.
Is there a way around this? I found a fairly recent post that suggested I could
POKE 16418,0 but testing this on both hardware and emulators it doesn't change anything.
This is my test code:
10 FOR a= 0 to 23 20 PRINT AT a,0;a 30 NEXT a
Which will end in
5 Out of screen (since it can't write to line index 22).
Or were these last two lines a pipedream for the 80s BASIC programmer?
