Abstract

In all the MODEs except mode 7 each character to be drawn in two colours is made up of a set of eight by eight pixels and may be printed as any foreground colour. Such a block of pixels is known as a character block. The BBC micro has a 95 character standard set, and also has the capability of displaying user-defined characters. Both types of characters may be placed on the screen by the PRINT command, so we must look closely at this operation.
