Here's a better way of doing for good performance:
local1 equ 1 ;local variable
local2 equ local1+2 ;local variable
space equ local2+2 ;how much space to reserve for locals
parm1 equ space+3 ;this is the first passed parameter
parm2 equ parm1+2 ;this is another parameter
end equ parm2+2 ;total stack used
at this point, you can use straight direct page access for local
variables and the passed parameters
the following code will exit...x&y are untouched for returning values
here's how we'd call it:
pea 1 ;parm2
pea 23 ;parm1
and we're done...the stack is already cleaned up for us
