Keyboard: U% [Elite-A, Flight]

Name: U% [Show more] Type: Subroutine Category: Keyboard Summary: Clear the key logger
Context: See this subroutine in context in the source code References: This subroutine is called as follows: * DEATH calls U% * DOKEY calls U% * RES2 calls U%

Returns: A A is set to 0 Y Y is set to 0
.U% LDA #0 \ Set A to 0, as this means "key not pressed" in the \ key logger at KL LDY #16 \ We want to clear the 16 key logger locations from \ KY1 to KY20, so set a counter in Y .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, until we have just \ KL+1. 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) RTS \ Return from the subroutine
