The version of TB that was on my Poly88 has the ability to have
extended operations. I used it to add PEEK, POKE and SAVE.
With this, one could extend to just about anything.
The BASIC on the disk is a full function BASIC. There was a 8K
and a 12K version. I was told that they were considered as
much better than MS. They were used a lot for business applications.
