I wrote this for several of reasons. First, to start and actually compete a program which I've never actually done- and the customary "Hello World" seemed appropriate. Second, I wanted to be have a program I could explain to people. So, I've avoided some of the more tedious aspects of an Atari programs if possible- such as fine-tuning the x position, or even having a y position at all. Third, to learn, as usual.
I'd appreciate any helpful comments if anyone is interested.
