Returns: A A is set to 0
.U% { LDA #0 \ Set A to 0, as this means "key not pressed" in the \ key logger at KL LDY #15 \ We want to clear the 15 key logger locations from \ KY1 to KY19, so set a counter in Y. We don't want to \ clear the first key logger location, at KL, as the \ keyboard table at KYTB starts with offset 1, not 0, \ so KL is not technically part of the key logger \ (it's actually used for logging keys that don't \ appear in the keyboard table, and which therefore \ don't use the key logger) .DKL3 STA KL,Y \ Store 0 in the Y-th byte of the key logger DEY \ Decrement the counter BNE DKL3 \ And loop back for the next key RTS }
