Rupert Report: Kernal Power - Harnessing Those Mighty ROM Routines20
Built into the ROMs of the Commodore computers is a powerhouse of utilities called the Kernal routines. These routines efficiently perform a varety of tasks. They provide highlevel functions for the assembly lanaguage programmer.
Previosly we have discussed some of the Kernal routines for the C-64 (Rupert Report #16 and #17, Ahoy! 4/85 and 5/85). All 39 of the C-64 routines are still available in the C-128, althrough some of them have been modified slightly. There are 19 new routines documented for the C-128.
