HG>GET and PUT works in text as well as graphics.
 JG> Thats kinda unrealistic isn't it???
Why is that unrealistic (or are you saying that tongue in
cheek???). It makes restoring areas behind popped-up
message/menu windows a breeze, i. e.

GET (10,10)-(30,15),ScreenBuffer!(0)
DEFPAGE 10,10 TO 30,15
PRINT "Message Here"
"Pop down and restore"
PUT (10,10),ScreenBuffer!(0),PSET

That alone makes it worthwhile. And it's real handy for picking up a "window"
and moving it
