Comment(discovery!) well what ever
I found out some thing about BXE that
is not documeted. 
  You can split up a very long varaiable  name.  like this.  
AVERLONGVARIABLENAME   this is fine in
                       standard ATARI-
                       BASIC. But, with
                       BASICxe you can
                       also use this
                       Makes it more
                       READABLE ha!
A_VARY_LONG_VARIABLE_NAME.


Comment from Peter Haller...

Funny, I've been using underscores to make my code more readable for years...
I didn't realize that Atari Basic didn't allow for this.  (Somebody
who has an 8-bit up and running check it out and let us - me -
know the results.)
