I have had a google about and searched this forum about this but not found anything. At this point I am going back in my memory to when I was probably 12/13 which is a LONG time ago
I recall a type in listing that used the "Locate" command first highlighted a problem to me. It seems that in the 800XL I had at the time (which I believe had Rev C BASIC) the locate command simply through out an error. Any type in listing that featured it failed at the locate command with an error. I tried writing my own small simple program to test it, and it too spat out an error.
Possibly because I just bought another 800XL off ebay with BASIC disabled this popped to mind, who knows, there's a lot of random in my head
Anyway, I wondered if there is an issue with this instruction in Atari BASIC?
I really need to dig out my other A8s and try it out to see if I can get the error (be more useful than my crappy description of a 30 year old memory )
anyone else seen this or know what it is/was ?
