And that was also a source of my confusion. You were referring to
code[2..7] for globals, while in the assembly I was seeing code[0..7]
I can have 8 in total, at the expense of overwriting code containing
B7, right? For serial boot it possibly does not matter, also the
relative module code could be loaded anywhere else in mem, leaving upper
code[0..] part for globals, as you explained.
Perhaps code := B7, could be restored?
But I have Oberon-0 (thanks to kind and patient advise here in the
list), and that treats globals past the end of code onwards..
Oberon-0 (2013) for me is an excellent start, how to introduce RIC5.
OR*, Regular Oberon, is then next challenge.
OR* = regular,
OS* = standalone ???
