So do I, on my *house*! (and my PDP-8 ;-)

I never liked single-key-entry BASIC because you have to "know"
what mysterious character they chose for keywords with the same
initial letter. I mean is "S" STEP? STOP? How about "O"? ON?

I'd rather type the whole word than worry about what the next letter
has to be.
