This patch will autostart the Disk Edtasm program in a 80 column mode.

Load in the DOS/BAS program from the Edtasm disk. Add these two lines;

0 WIDTH80:PALETTE 0,63:ATTR 0,0:CLS1
2 REMEDTASM

Save the DOS/BAS program back to disk. Be sure you do this to your working copy, not your original disk.

The next time you run DOS/BAS, it will be 80 columns wide, black characters on a white screen. If you are running out of buffer space, edit line 2 to load EDTASMOV instead of EDTASM, gives a little extra room for editing. See my fuzzy screenshot below for a typical screen in this mode.
