Interesting Sharp PC-1500 behavior

RE: Interesting Sharp PC-1500 behavior
I expect the pause after PRINT, most pocket computers to that or have a pause statement to accomplish the same thing. I did not expect it to evaluate an expression that was typed in while paused, or let you do something like 'GOTO 100' and it will jump to 100 and keep on running. You can also jump to another part of the program with a DEF key while in PRINT pause. Is this mentioned anywhere in Sharp documentation?

It has a few more quirks:

10 PRINT "Line 10"
20 END
30 PRINT "Line 30"

If while pause after line 10 you do:


The BUSY annunciator will come on and it will go through the motions of loading a program. The program is memory is not overwritten and when the CLOAD a completes it will skip line 20 and continue at line 30.

This way:
10 PRINT "Line 10":END
30 PRINT "Line 30"

If you enter CLOAD a after line 10 pauses, it will actually load a new program.
