42s: programming a line of -2 - rob - 09-04-2005

At Minehunt game , line 144 has me stumped. I don't know if I should enter this line as follows:

144 "-2"
or as
144 -2
I cannot figure out how to get the -2 to show up on the line for me without going to the next line automatically. There is another one of these later on, on line 249.

thanks,
rob

Hi, Rob;

to enter this program line, simply press

[2] [+/-]
The [+/-] key will change the sign of the number being currently entered, either in normal or in program mode. After the
[2] [+/-]
just press
[shift] [COMPLEX]
and go straight ahead with the next steps.

You can follow the same reasoning in step #249:

[1] [+/-]

I hope you succeed.
