.MT6 LDA #%10000000 \ Set bit 7 of QQ17 to switch standard tokens to STA QQ17 \ Sentence Case LDA #%11111111 \ Set A = %11111111, so when we fall through into MT5, \ DTW3 gets set to %11111111 and calls to DETOK print \ standard tokens EQUB &2C \ Skip the next instruction by turning it into \ &2C &A9 &00, or BIT &00A9, which does nothing apart \ from affect the flags
