Is it possible to properly freeze BASIC (disable BREAK) without using POKE or any USR?
There was a small machine code routine printed in Your Sinclair's Program Pitstop - I'm sure it was under the confusing name of 'Break-Out'. It made BASIC unbreakable. The BREAK key was just treated as if you pressed the SPACE bar on its own.
