This section of the User Guide introduces many more of the 'keywords' which are used in the writing of programs on the BBC Microcomputer.
We start with some miscellaneous, useful keywords and then go on to look at some of the graphics and colour statements. It is easy to explore the effects which these produce without any systematic knowledge of BASIC. You should experiment with each statement not only by typing in the commands or test programs which are given but by changing many of the values of the various variables to see what effects are produced. In this way you will become familiar with the use of each keyword and begin to see how it can be used in your own programs. For further information see the reference chapter on BASIC keywords.
