Description

RS-232C BASIC is a BASIC extension that is available with most internal or external RS-232C interfaces.

Instructions

It extends the 5 following instructions: CLOSE, LOAD, MERGE, OPEN and SAVE and adds in most cases 10 new instructions. There is one instruction that sometimes is not supported: CALL COMHELP.

Until these instructions are documented here, you can look at their explanation in the Sony HBI-232 Service Manual here, from page 11 onward: http://msxarchive.nl/pub/msx/mirrors/hanso/service_manuals/sonyhbm232sm.pdf

Notes:

  • CALL can be replaced by the character underscore (_). A space is not required after this character. See CALL for more info.
  • The Gradiente CT-80NET cartridge provides the CALL MSXLINK instruction instead of CALL COMHELP
