In Basic would there be any small ML or other routine that will
make the following program faster that you would know of???
Thanks, and this program is for the 8 bit.
100 rem #3=modem
110 rem #2 = E:
120 Get #3,x:put #2,x
Basically its getting a character x from the modem or other
device and putting it on the screen...Would you know of or where
I can get an ML routine to do the same but faster or can't
I "put" a character on the screen any faster than the baud rate
of the "from computer to t.v." cable, etc.???

        You don't say whether you are
using a 300 or 1200 baud modem.  If 300
then you will find it slow, anyway.  If
you have a 1200 baud modem, BASIC will
really slow you down.  Get 'hold of 
Mapping The Atari from Compute Books 
and De Re Atari, printed by the old
Atari and now available from some mail
order houses and the PEEKERS' lending
library.  You need to dig out the "CIO
and SIO System Calls".  If you still
need help, leave me E-mail.
