Working with Keyboard Input in Commodore BASIC

In this episode I’ll show you three ways to take user input from the keyboard in Commodore BASIC.

The INPUT and GET commands work on all systems, while the GETKEY command only works on the Plus/4 and C128. I’ll demonstrate how to use all of them.

This will come in handy for our little lottery programme we’ve been working on, so that we can prompt the user for some numbers to compare against later.

Enjoy!
