[BBC Micro disc version, Docked]

Name: INBAY [Show more] Type: Subroutine Category: Loader Summary: An unused routine that is never run
Context: See this subroutine in context in the source code References: No direct references to this subroutine in this source file
.INBAY LDX #0 \ This code is never run, but it takes up the same LDY #0 \ number of bytes as the INBAY routine in the flight JSR &8888 \ code, so if the flight code *LOADs the docked code in JMP SCRAM \ its own version of the INBAY routine, then execution \ will fall through into the DOBEGIN routine below once \ the docked binary has loaded \ \ This enables the docked code to choose whether to load \ the docked code and jump to DOBEGIN to restart the \ game (in which case the flight code simply *LOADs the \ docked code), or whether to dock with the space \ station and continue the game (in which case the \ flight code *RUNs the docked code, which has an \ execution address of S% at the start of the docked \ code, which contains a JMP DOENTRY instruction)
