It earned its name because it makes the cursor move across the screen while leaving a trail of user-. Joystick Mouse Emulator With a joystick i" pod 2, Joystick Mouse Emulator moves a pointer about ilic screen much as does a mouse input.
Your programs will have to contain a series of [f-Trien Statementl,. Listing '2 lisis some typical commands on the screen, along with tbe pointer, calls the machine language routine and waits for the joystick to move the pointer. A formula computes lie pointer's screen location in default when you press the fire-bullon.
The pointer moves in the direction you press the joystick. When you move the tip of the pointer over a desired instruc. Of course, in using the joystick routine in your own appli cations, you must map out the format of your own on-screen.

Line 10 ends at address The next line starts at address The bytes beginning at the slart of the second line look like this: Just to give an idea of the types of applications you can write once you understand the structure, study this simple example.
It prints the line numbers in a program along with their starting locations in memory:. Line 10 defines a function which calculates the value of the link pointer or the line number at a given address.
Line 30 sets up the initial address for the C and chan ges it if the program is being run on the C Recall that DSS is a special disk-status variable for the C, but it has a null value unless otherwise defined on the C Initially line 40 gets the starting address of the program, just as we discussed earlier. Once we reach the double ze roes at the end of the program, the link at that address is zero, and line 50 causes the program to end.
The is the token for the. From our earliest discussion, we saw that the first two bytes of each line are die link, and the next. Line 70 prints the results, and line 80 goes back for more. The program is deceptively simple. You should carefully study it to fully understand the process of accessing links AHOY! You could expand upon this program o perform various other tasks. For example, search for REM. Routines like these could be added to longer programs to.
The algorithm discussed last month for inserting and de leting nodes of singly linked lists can be readily adapted for doubly linked lists. With back links, we can more eas. Did you ever wonder why you can't scroll backward while editing. The Back Link of the node to be removed tells which node precedes it.
If each program line held a link to the previous line in memory as well as to the next line, perhaps the BASIC editor would back-scroll. A cir cular list is easily implemented, for example. Simply change the null value of the Final Next Link so lhat it points back. Most word processors and editors have separate forward. Sec if you can translate the following sentence which is.
The Next Link at node number 4 is 2. Therefore the sec. Its pointer has the null value shown us -1 in dicating the end of the list. The decoded sentence is "Linked. In the process, the entire document will have been searched. Every editor should be equipped with this capability. Another major category of data structures are trees. With the tree structure, each node may have links to two or more succeeding nodes.
Many types of data ranging from genea. The book is packed with algorithms and examples of numerous data structures. There are many other excellent sources of information on these.
Obviously we do not need the Back Links to interpret the sentence. In fact with some effort we could even read the sentence backward without the Back Links. Here is how we might do it. We could search the Next Links until we found the pull value -1 at node 3. This lells us that the Then we could search through the Next Links until we tbund the node that pointed to node number 3, namely node 1 "ARE". We then look for the node with a Next Link value of 1.
Another search shows. One more time through the Next Link list shows us that no node poinls to node 4. Therefore we have completed our backward jour ney through the list with the result "Handy are lists linked. If this were a 10, word documeni, it would be very time consuming to search through the list each time to find every preceding node.
The Back Links make the backwards. Node Ws Back Link has a null value, sig nifying the end of the list. Ai the expense of additional mem-.

The maze is originally drawn during the initialization by the routine at line On the screen, an inaccessible cell in the maze is shown.
As the computer moves through the maze, its position is shown by a blinking O. The current path is shown by O's. Once the end of the maze has been reached, line The computer's moves are stored in a doubly linked list MV.
In this doubly linked list, MV C,0 is a forward link indicating the next direction to move, and MV C,1 is the back link telling the previous cell number.
The computer always tries first to move in direction number 1 up from each. Line shows how easily the back links MV C,1 can be used to step back ward through the maze. Line shows how the forward. Feel free to modify this program. Change the amount. A move in a certain direction is in valid if that cell is inaccessible or has already been visited.
You must use a square number for NC or the screen display. If direction number 2 right is not valid, then the com puter tries directions 3 down and then 4 left. If there is no valid move from cell C, then the computer backs up. MV C,1 stores the cell number of the previous cell on the path. Line uses this value to know where to back up.
Lines and restore the status and the direction. The X and Y arrays store the column and row in formation for putting the cursor on the screen at the prop er position. They are assigned beginning at line The data structures make this program very easy to write and modify. The main loop is conlained in lines through Each move is selected by the subroutine at line There the direction pointer of the current cell MV C,0 is incremented in line The subroutine at line determines if the selected di rection is less than or equal to 4.
If not, all paths from this cell have been tried unsuccessfully, and the only thing to do is retreat. The BKUP flag is set to indicate this. If the direction is a valid number less than 5 , line uses the forward link to calculate the cell number in that. Line checks the status of that cell. If it is inaccessible 0 , occupied 2 , or the starting cell 3 , the.
There are some interesting results from changing the al lowed paths through the maze. For example, if there are four fs asterisks forming a square on a path in the maze, the cursor seems to perform a dance as it navigates the path in all possible sequences.

Much of the questioning of Shockett dealt with matters of prices paid by Malverne to manufacturers for LP's and prices charged by the company for dealer purchases.

Our Baltimore distributor used to have a truck waiting at the Victor Rockaway plant every day, and so did our Boston distributor. They were billed as they shoved the albums into their cars or taxicabs and sped away.
The same scene was being enacted in Los Angeles. By November 23, about 10 days after the record had broken in New York, Cadence had billed and shipped more than , LP's, excluding the freebies.
The firm had shipped more than , to Alpha in New York, and it still owed , on back order. All the Way As of November 30 the firm had billed and shipped 2,, records, again excluding the freebies which add up to 16 per cent over the top.
As of December 7, total billed and shipped was 2,,; December 14, 3,,; December The album is still selling at the rate of about 10, a week. Still, shipments have been carefully watched to the extent that right now, according to Dollin- ger and Mack, they do not believe there are more than 10, albums out in the field that might be returned.
It started when the firm's Hartford distributor. Eastern, called to place a large order. Distribucame through with cash, many of them going out and getting loans on their accounts receivables. At the height of the frantic demand.
Dollinger was receiving impassioned calls frtxn stores, racks and chains. He told the store to see the local Cadence dtotributor. They were up an never catch up, and I know Archie needs it. It seems that when they wanted the 'First Family' they found they could get it more quickly from dis- from the rackers. Distributors say that a number of chains have returned to them and intend to stay with them because of better service.
Dollinger: "I there will ever be another that sells so many copies in such a short period of time. But we now know not only that an album can sell 4 million in a few months, but that it is also possible to produce 4 million and get them to the stores while they're hot.
