PRINT BRIGHT <value>;
This can be used to change the permanent print settings, or the temporary ones. When used as a direct command:
BRIGHT nwhere n is either 0 (false) or 1 (true), then the subsequent print statements will have both their INK and PAPER values set to the higher intensity BRIGHT mode.
Just as in Sinclair basic, this command can be used as temporary colours by combining them with a print statement:
Print INK 0;PAPER 7; BRIGHT 1; "This is BLACK text on BRIGHT WHITE background"
(Note that the BRIGHT black and standard black are identical.)
This format does not change the permanent colour settings and only affects the characters printed within that print statement.
- This statement is 100% Sinclair BASIC compatible.
