NET

Syntax NET x%
Location QL ROM

This command sets the computer’s station number for use in a network to x%. A station can have any integer number in the range 1..128 (although see Note below). Each station in the network should have a different station number to avoid confusion. When the computer is first switched on (or reset), it is given the station number 1.

Example

NET 12

sets the station number to 12.

NOTE

Many implementations allow a station number in the range 1..127 (SMS allows 1..255), although there is still a maximum of 64 computers which can be linked into the network at any one time using standard QLs.

Auroras allow more to be linked together.
