How do I set the Apple IIc Plus to 80 column text mode?

I am trying to set the text mode to 80 columns. I do have a system utilities disk 4.0 I want to fit a lot more characters on screen while typing programs in AppleSoft Basic. What is the Peek, or Poke command to do this? Thanks a bunch.

To do it automaticly in applesoft all you need to do is type this in:
10 Print CHR($)"PR#3"

Isn't it 10 PRINT CHR$(4);"PR

Isn't it 10 PRINT CHR$(4);"PR#3"

Putting that in your hello program on your disk will auto load 80, right? I've always thought the chr$(4) or ctrl-D was to load direct command.

I have found both ways work.

When DOS or Prodos sees the CHR$(4) or CTRL-D the grabs the rest of the String and uses it a if you typed a command and hit return.
