Post subject:  Pre-defined symbols and BEL

According to the documentation some symbols are already defined (e.g. BS, CR, LF) but when I use them they don't work. Can these be added to the sim (or did I forget to do something?)

Also, if you print $07 to the console there should be a BEL but I don't hear it. Has this been implemented or can it be added?

From the EASy68K documentation:
The following control characters are supported:
BS  EQU  $08   Backspace
HT  EQU  $09   Tab (horizontal 5 characters)
LF  EQU  $0A   New line (line feed)
VT  EQU  $0B   Vertical tab (4 lines)
FF  EQU  $0C   Form Feed (Always end printing with a Form Feed.)
CR  EQU  $0D   Carriage Return

This is not meant to imply that these symbols are predefined. The above EQU directives need to be part of the program.

The BEL character (ASCII 7) is supported by the simulator even though it is not in the above list.

OK i tried $07 (at home this time) and it works. Something wrong with my computer at work I guess. Sorry to bother you.
