XyIII doesn't use BX...Q2. That was introduced in Xy4. For
III, you need the BC . . . XC pair of functions.
Also, XyIII does NOT recognize ;*; or any comment. The only way to put a
newline into XPL code in XyIII is to put it inside a label, like
And that's not good practice, because labels consume memory, and the
longer the more consumed.
These are two excellent reasons, Flash, why you should use Xy4 instead of
XyIII, since you intend to program. Xy4 beats XyIII hands down, and
there's very little learning curve--they're 95% compatible.
Jordan is right that Startup.Int is 100% an XPL program, and it can be
executed at any Command Line:
Xy is case-insensitive, by the way. (Except for when you specify a case
in a search or change).

NO user intervention.
I believe that ";*;" is how you Comment Out (in the program
sense) a Xy-4 command line for a program, and Startup.Int is a
very basic type of Xy program, akin to a batch file in DOS.
Or, at least, that's what _my_ memory tells me.
If that's right, I don't know if it carries over to Xy-3 or to
the fancier XPL type of programming.
