CoCo Urbane

I’m Having Fun

I have the urbane editor and interpreter written. Unfortunately It takes fifteen seconds to load. It seems like forever. Of course it’s not like when I started studying computers. One run a day. There’s a much more serious problem. I copy the next line to execute into the direct line buffer. That buffer is called the line input buffer for a reason. When I try to do input the input clobbers my commands. I was thinking of sharing the buffer. Write my commands into the far end of the buffer. The problem is that once in a while the input would overtake the commands. And there remains the problem of a buffer to handle reading data from the data statements in the program. I was thinking of dedicating a medium resolution graphics page for my two buffers. Six data pages. What a waste. Then I recalled low resolution pages. Two data pages per graphics page. Perfect. I never use low resolution buffers. I won’t mind. Who am I kidding. No one else is going to use urbane anyway. lol.
