Disable and Enable BREAK at will.

Enable and Disable BREAK at will. One of the most annoying things about the ZX81 is that when you BASIC program is running anytime you press the SPACE key it will cause a BREAK your BASIC program. I've been working on this for awhile and I've come up with a method to be able to disable or enable the...

Re: No Break please, just a space...

Can anyone tell me if this program "nobreak.p" works on a real standard ZX81 ?

How would you transfer it to real hardware ?

Print values fast (10X faster)

I love the ZX81, but printing values is crazy slow.
Try this

10 FOR X=1 TO 200
20 PRINT X;" ";
30 NEXT X

So I thought I would write a short machine code program to make it faster.
I have timed it and it seems to be about 10 times faster than Sinclair BASIC.

All comments welcome...

Is there an extension cable or something available that would allow me to use it without blocking the ports...
