Fun for Kidz program errors

Typing Problems: If you are having trouble typing in a program try typing a little a day. Have a friend or a family member read to you the program while you type (Helps me anyway).

Errors in program listings!:

Here are some errors that were discovered in the program listings. Although I haven't found any serious errors in the programs I thought that these comments may be helpful. Note: the line numbers given below are not the same numbers that are at the beginning of some of the program's lines. So, when I say "line 10" I mean "line 10" not the line with "10" at the beginning.

Sorry for the way the printed program looks. Here is the way in should have been.

BEGIN: CLS : SCREEN 0: WIDTH 80, 25: PRINT "Press the enter key to quit."
INPUT "Type (code) to encode a message and (decode) to decode one->", K$
K$ = UCASE$(K$)
IF K$ = "CODE" THEN
CLS : INPUT "Please enter a message to encode->", C$
PRINT "Coded Message->";
FOR K = 1 TO LEN(C$): PRINT HEX$(ASC(MID$(C$, K, 1))); : NEXT K: GOTO YESNO
END IF
IF K$ = "DECODE" THEN
CLS : INPUT "Please enter a message to decode->", D$
PRINT "Decoded Message->;"
FOR K = 1 TO LEN(D$) STEP 2: PRINT CHR$(VAL("&H" + MID$(D$, K, 2))); : NEXT K
GOTO YESNO
END IF: END
YESNO: PRINT : PRINT "Do you want to continue? (Y/N)"
DO: K$ = INKEY$: LOOP UNTIL K$ <> "": IF UCASE$(K$) = "Y" THEN GOTO BEGIN
END
