The value of our compass in A is: \ \ * 0 = north \ * 64 = east \ * 128 = south \ * 192 = west STA previousCompass \ Store A in previousCompass, so we can pass it to this \ routine again when we want to erase the line we are \ about to draw CLC \ Set A = A + 16 ADC #16 \ \ This rotates the compass needle clockwise by 16, or \ 22.5 degrees, so if the needle is just anticlockwise \ of a cardinal compass point (e.g. NNW, ENE) it will be \ bumped along to the quadrant and will inherit the \ correct direction bit in bit 7.

Arguments: A For the runway line only, this is either the current compass direction from yRotationHi (if we are drawing the radar line), or a previous compass direction (if we are erasing the existing radar line) X The type of radar line to calculate: * 0 = runway line * Non-zero = alien (shown as a dot)

Returns: T Magnitude of x-coordinate of line's vector |x-delta| U Magnitude of y-coordinate of line's vector |y-delta| V The direction of the line (runway), or an arbitrary direction for the dot, because it doesn't matter (alien) * Bit 7 is the direction of the x-delta * Bit 6 is the direction of the y-delta Direction is like a clock, so positive (clear) is up and right

[X]

Variable previousCompass (category: Dashboard)

Stores the value of the compass heading when we draw the runway on the radar, so we can erase the line later
