PRINTDCI quick-and-easy ASM printing routine


This short routine makes it easy to print strings from assembly code, or even from the mini-assembler.  (Especially in the Enhanced monitor, which lets you enter ASCII characters using a ` prefix.)



Assemblers like EDASM have a directive called DCI that encodes an ASCII string in such a way that the end of the string can be distinguished by checking its high bit.  The DCI statement converts your string into ASCII bytes so that most characters have the high bit cleared, but the last character has its high bit set.
