PRINT ITALIC <value>;
This can be used to change the permanent print settings, or the temporary ones. When used as a direct command:
ITALIC nwhere n is either 0 (false) or 1 (true), then the subsequent print statements will have their INK pixels slewed left at the top, and right at the bottom, making text appear italicized.
This command can be used as temporary colours by combining them with a print statement:
Print INK 0;PAPER 7; ITALIC 1; "This is ITALIC BLACK text on WHITE"
This version does not change the permanent colour settings and only affects the characters printed within that print statement.
- This statement is NOT Sinclair BASIC compatible.
