.mes9 JSR TT27 \ Call TT27 to print the text token in A LSR de \ If bits 1-7 of variable de are clear, return from the BEQ out \ subroutine (as out contains an RTS). This means that \ " DESTROYED" is never shown, even if bit 0 of de is \ set, which makes sense as we are docked LDA #253 \ Print recursive token 93 (" DESTROYED") and return JMP TT27 \ from the subroutine using a tail call
