PETSCII Codes in Listings

From C64-Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Type-in listings in BASIC were very popular in the early days of home computers and gave newcomers a good starting point to discover how their computer work.

Printing such BASIC listings for the Commodore computers however was not an easy task because of the specific looking PETSCII-characters. To overcome that problem descriptive codes were introduced to represent these characters as plain text.

PETSCII Plain Text Representation in BASIC Listings[edit]

The following table provides a complete overview of the 256 PETSCII CHR$-codes and their text representation by the most common PRG-to-ASCII tools/de-tokenizers. Also it shows the keys, key combinations or tricks, how these PETSCII-characters can be entered as part of a string sequence.

Small oddity with the Pi-Symbol when entering as shift +  :

  • A$="𝜋":PRINTASC(A$) will show the Pi character as value 255
  • GETA$:PRINTASC(A$) will show the Pi character as value 222


Return-Reverse-Trick (RRT)[edit]

Unfortunately some control characters cannot be entered directly inside a string. Instead we use a little workaround to overcome this limitation.

  1. Enter the complete BASIC line but instead of the control-character (e.g. inverse 't' for delete) just set a 't' for the moment and press return .
  2. Move the cursor back up to the place where the inverse 't' should be.
  3. Turn on reverse mode by applying ctrl + 9 , overwrite the 't' by typing again 't' in reverse mode and press return again.

When you list the entered line you should be able to see that the BASIC editor has accepted this later change. ‎
