by Tag (BASIC Internals)
Lately I've been playing with the inner workings of BASIC, and it struck me to try to revive a program I accidentally killed. This is certainly no news flash, and my solution is probably not the shortest, but hopefully it's interesting.
I came up with two BASIC one-liners that can get a lost program back in pristine condition, from immediate mode. Here I explain my solution and get into some of the details of how BASIC works, including some handy tricks.
