I have been working on a look up table to convert ASCII characters to Friden characters. Today I came across an odd thing. My look up table is a bunch of DB statements with comments to help me see what is there. For example
This code gave me a data error when I assembled it. Turns out that the problem is the exclamation point in the comment. If I remove just the !, everything works. After doing some reading, the ! is an end of line symbol, used to put more than one code on the same line. I didn't know that, but I had assumed that anything could be placed in a comment. But apparently that is not so? Thanks Mike
db 22H,40H,23H,13H,24H,04H,25H,15H ;",#,$,!
