just tips:
DESK: mayble the clear screen with color
PLAY: =sound?
TUNE: ?
BEEP: a beep sound?
BOOM: az explosion sound?
SPLAT: ?
IMAGE: maybe some image load/save/copy functions?
CHARSET FROM: changing the font bank?
CAPTURE: maybe can record the commands on a channel?
XOR: this always missing for me

You have reminded me about PLAY: I wanted a simpler way to play tunes than using the SOUND command eg. PLAY "CDEFGAB" to play a scale, with additional syntax within the string to control duration, octave etc (eg. PLAY "C2D5O3EF...". But no time/ROM space :(

it is easy to make a function like this.
call play("CDEFG")
or with octaves.
but my idea is: defaults. so the play function has default global parameters for duration, envelope etc...

I remembered where else I saw it: http://enterprise.iko.hu/brochures/ElanComputersLTD-8.jpg
There writes about TUNE command
Press ENTER to exit BASIC
