Assembler: Bibo Assembler
Published: Bibo Assembler Toolkit Disk

This routine reads the Get-Char Routines out of the Handler Tab of the "E:" Handler and pushed the Address to the Stack. The Return from Subroutine Command (RTS) uses this address to jump into the ROM GetKey Routine. Because the Address will be read from the Handler Table, this routine works with all ATARI OS Versions.

The ASCII Value of the Key will be in the Accu, X and Y registers will not be saved.

Taken from the Bibo Assembler Toolkit Disk.
