What you mean is not the processor, it's the built-in basic interpreter.
I cannot guarantee anything about the 86, but basic is generally not
compiled (turned into asm commands), it's interpreted (an asm program
uses the basic program to decide what functions to perform). There is
a major difference here: the basic is never turned into asm, so there
is nothing for you to "intercept".
