I Integrated the Editor

My dad used to say, “There’s the easy way, there’s the hard way, and then there’s Earl’s way that makes the hard way look easy.” I patched my input driver to replace “E” with ‘RUN”ED2’ in the input buffer. ED2 just says EXEC&H7C00. Hey, it works. lol.

Actually I pointed the input pointer to an ASCII string of ‘RUN”ED2’. The ED2 program replaces the ED1 program which was sitting in the traditional BASIC program area. ‘EXEC&H7C00’ is the same in the traditional BASIC and the new URBANE BASIC. &H7C00 is the reentry address for URBANE BASIC. I’m so proud. lol.
