Description: ACPTR is a low-level serial I/O utility to accept a single byte from the current serial bus TALKer using full handshaking. To prepare for this routine, a device must first have been established as a TALKer (see TALK) and passed a secondary address if necessary (see TKSA). The byte is returned in .A. (Most applications should use the higher-level I/O routines; see BASIN and GETIN).
