To insert lines in a basic program you create a line with an intermediate number.

20 CIRCLE (128, 100), 50

to insert a line there you do

15 REM Draw a circle

and use RENUM to re-enumerate in tens again... and create more "interlines", it would fix all the goto references automatically... that was amazing

Yep, you always started out counting by tens, and hoped you never got to the point where you had to start renumbering due to needing to insert more than 9 lines. 😁
