The GOSUB command we have used is essentially the GOTO command with a special feature attached. , GOSUB 19 means go to the subroutine beginning at Line 19). The special feature involves the RETURN command at the end of the subroutine. The computer automatically returns to the next line after the GOSUB statement that sent it to the subroutine in the first place. Thus, you can use GOSUB to call the same subroutine from different parts of a long program, and the computer will always come back to the right line to continue the program.

This convenient key combination will get you back to normal without erasing the program. Be careful to get POKE numbers right! You have just changed the organizational structure of memory so that the computer lost track of which addresses contained which information - it lost track of the keyboard characters. This ability to move video memory is an advanced feature of your 64 (which will not be used in this book). The VIC II chip is so versatile that this book can't hope to cover all of its features; we will concentrate on using sprites.
