Default Re: NIBL 'helper' routines

T2BIN described here https://www.vintage-radio.net/forum/...75#post1623875

A means of saving ram contents as a binary file, (machine code or BASIC) using the inbuilt 'T' command of Nat-Semis original 'Kitbug' (one of Kitbugs total of three commands!) also works with KB+

The resulting binary file can be fast-loaded (2400, no delays) using the KB+ Sxxxx command. If fast-loading a NIBL program, return to NIBL at the warm-start address of 0x1970, ie from KB+
G1970

if you've changed pages, or reset, then do
PAGE=n (page 4 in the BASYS example above)
then
RUN
