While the program does default into Epson mode there is another option available not displayed on the initial screen of each program. From the LOAD HELP screen hiting d or D will set the program to use my DATAC DX109V printer which has a secondary character set with teletext graphics predefined. I have the autolinefeed set on it so this printer does not need the line feed sending as it does in Epson mode and also the line spacing is greater limiting the lines/page to 60. Should you have neither of these printers or have one of those new fangled hosepipe printers, you need only change PROCepson and maybe maxline% so give it a go!.

On this issue there is a program which adds to the recent discussion of prime number generating programs. It's a simple program which is currently set to test all terms in the sequence tn=n^2+n+41 for primeness using Jonathan Harston's excellent IsPrime function. The program prints each term in blue if prime, white if not, which seemed to be the best way of showing what a lot of terms actually are prime. Other, but less effective sequences to try are tn=n^2+n+17 and tn=2n^22 - just change the formula at line 180.
