The number of new, blank =NOTE> or xNOTE> lines to be created. If n is omitted or specified as zero, one line is created.
Up to 99 such lines can be directly created with a single NOTE line command, or up to 9 for xNOTE, unless the sequence number field has been made wider than 6 columns. If the sequence field has a width of 5, up to 9 =NOTE> lines can be created, and only a single xNOTE> line. See note below.
The NOTE or xNOTE line command provides a quick way to create a number of blank =NOTE> lines. These lines can then be typed-over with any desired information.
You can create either simple NOTE lines or use an alphabetic prefix character from A to Y to create different types of notes, such as CNOTE, MNOTE, etc.
xNOTE lines are most likely be used by some macro command, such as one used in conjunction with a compiler, to insert diagnostic message lines into the text based on the compiler output, perhaps using different xNOTE types for various error severity levels. SPFLite does not provide such macros; you would have to write them yourself.
The keyword ZNOTE is reserved for use on the primary command line; you cannot enter ZNOTE into the sequence area as a line command.
Inserting additional NOTE lines
Because of the length of the NOTE or xNOTE line commands, there is limited room for specifying the n value if you need to insert many blank note lines. There are two methods for creating more note lines than can be specified by the n value:
LINE XNOTE25 .100
