Do you have an interesting tutorial or how-to to add to the Commander X16 library? Add it here.
Edit the category you want to add your tutorial and add a new link, like this:
- [[Create A Tutorial]] With a short description of how to do a thing.
Then save the page. This will create a new link that's red (the target doesn't exist.)
Click that new link and edit the new page.
All tutorials should include BASIC and assembly tutorials. Assembly code should be formatted for ACME or 64TASS. Always specify the assembler used when creating examples, as there are some syntactic differences.
You may also include short listings in MONitor format, like this...
.,A000 A9 93 LDA #$93 .,A002 20 D2 FF JSR $FFD2 .,A005 A9 51 LDA #$51 .,A007 85 F7 STA $F7 .,A009 A9 A0 LDA #$A0 .,A00B 85 F8 STA $F8
for super-short examples.
