GETXY

Syntax GETXY x%, y%
Location HCO

This command draws a crosshair (with its centre at (x%,y%) which can be moved with the cursor keys. Holding down <SHIFT> while pressing a cursor key will speed up movement. Once the crosshair is placed in the correct position, press <SPACE> to return to BASIC. The two parameters x% and y% will be updated to the position of the centre of the cross.

NOTE 1

It is obligatory to pass integer variables to GETXY.

NOTE 2

GETXY returns a wrong value for y% on Minerva ROMs, so it is unusable.

NOTE 3

Turbo and Supercharge compilers cannot compile this command.
