Thanks for the pointer to Dilwyn's tutorial.
It is helpful but it doesn't contain what I was looking for. I did
eventually find the answer here:
The solution involves PEEKing the window definition table, which is
effective, but not exactly obvious, at least if you've become unaccustomed
to 1980s programming conventions.
I have never written a Basic extension - it's a very long time since I last
attempted to write something in assembler, but this seems like a prime
candidate for my first attempt, assuming it doesn't already exist somewhere.
