Other than that I'll just say that BASIC programs always need to be ported between different machines, but they vary in degree into the amount of work. The biggest stumbling blocks of course being graphics, I/O differences, memory, binary incompatibility (peeks, pokes, calls/execs). Even between the M100 and NEC there is usually a fair amount of work. One thing unique (as far as I know) to the Model 100 is its ON ____ commands. They allow you to trigger off different high level events/interrupts. -- John.
