## Fast plotting routine for MODE 1

This routine is approx. 6 times faster than the OS routine GRA PLOT, because it is dpendent to MODE 1 and doesn't perform range checks. It can draw 10500 pixels per second.

**Input:** DE = *X (0..319)*, HL = *Y (0..199)*

NOTE: This MODE 1 code won't assemble with WinAPE/Maxam unless the &X is replaced by % to denote binary numbers.
