Joel Gluck asked me how to use interrupts from an ACTION program. Here are two programs which, respectively, deal with the DLI and VBLD interrupts.

Notice that, since Action is not re-entrient, you can't call subroutines, or do anything else which might mess up a memory location that the main program is depending upon. For example, multiply and divide are both done by subroutines, so you can't use them within a VBLANK routine. It is, however, safe to add, subtract, index an array, and store. (But be sure to clear the decimal flag if your main program might be calling the floating point ROMs!)

; interrupt from Action
