Atari Listing Conventions

I don't know what a few of the symbols used in COMPUTE! to specify escape sequences mean (for example, {A}). I own an Atari 800 and if you could print a complete list of these, I'm sure that I and many others would appreciate it.

To display special graphics characters, or to move the cursor around using a PRINT statement, the Atari uses special control characters. To make it easy to type in programs appearing in COMPUTE! which include these characters, we've developed a listing convention with instructions on how to type in these characters when entering a program from the magazine. The conventions are published in every issue for convenience. See page 212, October 1982.
