 +=====Interpreter internal variables=====
  
 +//by Richard Russell, June 2009//\\ \\  The table below lists the addresses and purposes of a number of memory locations used internally by the //BBC BASIC for Windows// interpreter. Only very rarely will a BASIC programmer be interested in these values, and only experienced programmers with a good understanding of the inner workings of the interpreter should attempt to use them. It will hardly ever be required to write to these locations, and doing so without a full understanding of the consequences is likely to crash the interpreter or make it unstable.\\ \\  The addresses shown in the first column are appropriate when accessed directly from BASIC, but they cannot be used from assembler code. In the latter case the locations must be accessed indirectly, for example instead of **!408** use **[^!408]**.\\ \\
