I am experimenting with saving a BASIC program from Altirra to the PC, editing the saved program in notepad++, and then loading it again in Altirra.
In my procedures below two programs had different end-of-line characters as displayed in notepad++, a right pointing carrot (not a greater than symbol) and the box below that was actually the letters CSI in inverse (black background and white text). Things worked great for the program that used the CSI as the end of line, I saved, edited in notepad++, and ran the edited program in Altirra. The program that used the right pointing carrot, even though it loaded in Altirra after editing in notepadd++ with no error and the code looked good, the program crashed Altirra at run.
Is there a safer/better way to do what I am doing? What I like about my procedures below is going from Altirra to PC back to Altirra all special characters, case, and inverses were retained.
