Some Speed to Your XE
Alpha Systems is shipping the BASIC TurboCharger. Since Atari Basic can run machine-language programs, J. Bader came up with the novel approach of putting together a library of machine-language programs that can be incorporated into your BASIC programs. The result is machine-language speed for commonly used functions such as memory movers, screen data manipulators, data searches and sorts, and screen animations.
Machine-language routines to handle screen player/missile movement and other animation are included. High-speed disk load and save routines allow you to save Micropainter and character sets quickly. Some bit-blit operations are included, which are handy if you are writing programs with screen painting functions.
The TurboCharger comes with a 128-page manual and diskette for only $24.95. The diskette contains many short machine-language routines that are completely documented in the manual.
