Article #128 (419 is last): Newsgroups: freenet.sci.comp.atari.questions From: aa338 Subject: Screen Handlers Date: Sun Jul 30 09:26:09 1989 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.??? ** Answered by JOHN SUCHY (aa271) on Sat Jun 27 02:24:29 1987 ** 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. Your Co-sysop John E. Suchy aa271 Thanks for asking.
