Outstrech
INSTRUCTIONS AND INFORMATION 
OUTSTRETCH creates double-height
text by  stretching  any  normal
character set and generating two
new char sets - one with the top
half and one with the bottom  of
the new, double-size characters.
Use the LOAD,STRETCH AND RE-SAVE
option  and note the information
at the end.TOPCHARS in OUTLET 03
gives a clear explanation as  to
what is happening and provides a
ready-made routine:TOP GO SUB to
display double-height characters

The STRETCH CODE is in a REM at 
line 9850 and this can  be saved
separately as 'STRETCH REM' and 
MERGEd into your programs.  Save
space by loading normal sets(768
bytes each)and stretch as needed
(This only saves room where 3 or
more sets are used).

To use 'STRETCH REM', LOAD your 
char set and page it in as usual
with the low byte of the address
of the char set in 23606 and the
high byte MINUS 1 in 23607.  Not
sure how to do that? One way is:
 RANDOMIZE ADDRESS, POKE 23606, 
 PEEK 23670 and POKE 23607,PEEK 
 23671-1.   then...
RANDOMIZE ADDRESS(where you want
the stretched chars)+GO SUB 9850

To use the new chars,page in the
address(you chose)PLUS 768,PRINT
ONE LINE OF TEXT,  SUBTRACT 768,
page that address in - and PRINT
THE SAME LINE AGAIN.
For blocks of text - why not use
the routine from TOPCHARS called
'TOP GO SUB' or write your own.
