WIDTH

Format

WIDTH number1

Description

This statement will set the screen to 40 column text or 80 column text mode only. The only two valid values for number1 are thus 40 and 80. In ASIC, WIDTH 80 is equivalent to executing SCREEN 0. Also, WIDTH 40 is equivalent to executing SCREEN 1. If you use WIDTH 40, you should always reset the screen back to WIDTH 80 before terminating your program with END. Otherwise, your PC will be left in 40 column mode.

Example

WIDTH 40
The above statement would put the PC in 40 column mode.
