ROMODE
Type:  Adverb (real scalar)
Use:   When an image is too large to fit in one TV memory plane, it is
       possible to load portions of the image into more than one TV
       memory.  Then, one may view any screen-sized contiguous portion
       of the image.  ROMODE specifies how many channels are used and
       their spatial configuration.  The format is 100*Mx + My, where
       Mx is the number of planes along the X axis and My is the
       number of planes along the Y axis.  For the XAS TV display, Mx
       and My are allowed to be between 1 and 16 while their product
       must be <= 16.  Useful values are 1601, 802, 404, 208, 116 to
       use all of the memories although numerous other combinations
       are also legitimate.  The defaults are set by the map size
       (as limited by TBLC, TTRC, TXINC, and TYINC) and the TV display
       size.  The verbs tries to load as big an image as possible.
Verbs:
  TVROAM.....Load image to TV channels, then roam
  SETROAM....Reset channel spatial configuration, then roam
