Instructions

Kanji BASIC comes with 14 new instructions. The MSX-BASIC instruction PUT KANJI, available on all MSX2 and higher computers, can be seen as a related Kanji BASIC instruction.

Notes:

  • CALL can be replaced by the character underscore (_). A space is not required after this character. See CALL for more info.
  • The BASIC extension is optional on MSX2 as it requires one of the cartridges mentioned above. The 14 new instructions become officially part of the standard since MSX2+.
