It was thus said that the Great Bryan Pope once stated:

The coding forms I've seen (and used!) were for BASIC for the Color
Computer. Looked quite a bit like graph paper, but for the Coco, it was
broken up into 32-column width "chunks" (for lack of a better term) to match
the width of the screen, and one would write each letter of the program into
a single square. I think I got it more for the novelty than actual use.
