Title TDCoder
Description TDCoder (TextDeCoder) is a BASIC prgm I wrote while thinking about how to implement NPC-dialogues in my RPG... so I came up with this little program that will take a text stored in Ans as a string and output it on the graph screen. It uses the included Asm-Lib CODEX to generate the textbox and to erase it.

While “TDecoder” is a good effort, it's not really a unique idea, and is somewhat inefficient. If your program or game already uses CODEX, it makes sense, but if not, it's completely unnecessary. Just use the Text(Y,X,[16 spaces] command several times to clear the area in a fraction of a second instead, and use Line( and Text( for the text. In addition, you won't get the crashes that Codex generates if the text goes off the edge of the screen.

Uniquity: 3/10
Execution: 4/10
Efficiency: 1/10
Overall: 2.5/10: Good effort, but the idea has been done better elsewhere.
