OSBYTE &A3 (163) - Application support
 On entry:
   X = application identifier
       X=128 Electron Plus 1
       X=242 Graphics Extension Support
       X=243 65Tube
       X=253 Cause a reset
       X=255 Acornsoft View family
   Y = parameter
 On exit:
   X = return value
   Y = return value

X=&80 (128) Plus 1 Support

 On entry:
   Y=0 enable printer/ADC
   Y=1 disable printer/ADC
   Y=2 enable serial port
   Y=3 disable serial port
   Y=4 restore ROM table
 On exit:
   If Y<4 on entry,
     X=0 if enabled, X<>0 if disabled
   If Y=4 on entry,
     X=default language in X, b7 set if no default language

X=&F2 (242) Graphics Extension Support (GSX, RISC OS)

 On entry:
   Y=0     resets the dot-dash pattern and length to defaults
   Y=1..64 set dot dash pattern repeat length
 On entry:
   Y=65    return status returns
 On exit:
   if X=Y=0 then the ROM is fitted but disabled
   X=b0..5 current dot dash pattern repeat length (0 means 64)
     b6    if set flood fill is turned on
     b7    if set GXR ROM is turned on
   Y=number of pages allocated to sprites
 On entry:
   Y=66    return info on currently selected sprite
 On exit:
   if X=Y=0 then the ROM is fitted but disabled, or no sprite is selected
   X=pixel width 
   Y=pixel height

If the GXR ROM is absent, the call returns X=&FF and Y preserved. A call to OSBYTE &A3,242,65 can determine if GSX is absent, present but disabled, or present and enabled:

 On entry: A=&A3, X=242, Y=65
 On exit:  Y=65 - GSX ROM absent (Y preserved if ROM is absent)
           Y<64 - GSX ROM is present (not possible to have more
                  than 64 pages of workspace)
                  X.b7=0 - GSX ROM disabled
                  X.b7=1 - GSX ROM enabled

X=&F3 (243) 65Tube emulator

 On entry:
   Y=4     find code address
 On exit:
   if Y<>0, XY=address to jump to
   Called on Tube reset, *BASIC and NMIs to ask for any code entry address.
 On entry:
   Y=6     find *command to execute
 On exit:
   if Y<>0, XY=>*command to execute
   Called on Tube reset to ask for any startup command.

X=&FD (253) Cause a Reset

 On entry:
   Y=OSBYTE &FD reset type:
     0 = Soft Reset (Break)
     1 = Power-On Reset
     2 = Hard Reset (Ctrl-Break)
 On exit:
   Will only exit if the call is not implemented.
 Implemented by RSTROM and other ROMs.

   Y=&02/&82 read/set ViewSheet's ROM workspace byte
   Y=&03/&83 read/set ViewStore's ROM workspace byte
   Y=&04/&84 read/set ViewSpell's ROM workspace byte

   Some versions of ViewSheet and ViewSpell do not implement the
   call to set the workspace byte.
