Re: Next BASIC?

What's this +3e mode exactly?
I'm stoked for it though - that file handling (with wildcards!) is about as slick as anyone could ask for.

Re: Z88DK :- ZX Next Target (+zxn)

There's some interesting stuff in the new Z80 instructions (multiply!), I'm curious if the Z88DK compiler authors find these useful for generating better code, or if they have any killer suggestions for instructions that would make a lot of compiled code better.

Re: WIP - Walkabout (z88dk)

I have done z80 assembly in the past but liked the idea of developing the bulk in C and then swapping any bits out with assembly equivalents Good to see, as I'm hoping to take the same approach with...
