I use write string$ a lot which ends with a standard ASCII carriage return (13)+(10). Is it possible to have strings end with null termination instead?

You're welcome

Actually there's a typo there, the null byte should be written to pos + strlen + 1, otherwise it will overwrite the last character in the string. But I suppose you already noticed that
