There are a few software updates on my website:

1. NET_PEEK  v 3.42 displays graphics information for CON/SCR channels in programs compiled by TURBO.

2. TURBO TK Code v 3.42 contains the keyword TURBO_DUMMY which can be used, in conjunction with TURBO_V, as a substitute for functions returning floating point.

(The fact that both new versions are 3.42 is purely coincidental!)

3. Turbo TK Code contains the additional keyword TURBO_DUMMY. This is because, although I am fairly certain that that keyword was supposed to be added as a replacement for functions returning floating point values when using TURBO_V, it appears that TURBO_DUMMYF was added instead. Now both are available in v 3.42.

4. One of NET_PEEK’s capabilities is displaying information about channels. In particular S*BASIC CON/SCR channels have a section showing graphical information. For example this section shows whether, in turtle graphics, you have PENUP or PENDOWN. This information is available in programs compiled by Turbo and is now displayed for the first time by NET_PEEK v 3.42.
