My string drawing implementation doesn't rely on +the zero page anymore; everything happens on the working stack. + +Having to think about bytes vs. shorts is one way that uxntal differs from the +other stack-oriented language I've been exploring lately, [PostScript]({{< ref +"posts/postscript-graph-paper/index.md">}}). At one point, I zero-padded a byte +so that I could do a stack rotation on shorts cleanly, but I'm not sure if that +was the best approach. + +The "obvious" next thing to do is to start reading keyboard input and echoing it +to the screen. This is all such a tiny part of the program I'm hoping to finish +(a "game" to help me learn Morse Code), but I only noodled a bit with that +before losing steam for the night.
