To correct the second mistake, hold down [SHIFT] and press the cursor up key until the copy cursor appears over the very beginning of line There’s another awesome tip on detecting errors in your code. Flicking through this magnificent compendium has sent me on a serious nostalgia trip. They lead to ‘structured’ programs, and develop good programming habits.
Well designed subroutines are a principal part of computing. The computer does this automatically for you, and will react to an unwanted [RETURN] by printing an error message – usually a Syntax erroreither there and then, or when the program is run. Important When you reach the right hand edge of the screen by entering 40 characters on a line, the next character will automatically appear on the following line at the left edge of the screen.
And it recurs throughout the early chapters of the book, as they explicitly tell you where to hit return in case you’ve miraculously forgotten. It wasn’t long before I downloaded an Amstrad emulator or two and began to relive some of the programming fun of Amstrad Basic.
I find something adorable in their vociferous way of describing the technique. I’ve had some recent fun building simple programs on the Amstrad emulators but there’s too much to cover here. Our unit is complete with software and manual.
You will notice the main cursor has not moved, so there are now two cursors on the screen. Consider this startling example of using ‘ the copy cursor ‘ to correct a typo. The main cursor has moved but the copy cursor stayed where it was.

I’d like to write a little about it, if I find the time, but that’s enough for now. The serial number is and this system was kindly donated by Benn Reynolds Manufacturer:
