Appendix A. Menu Item numbers

This is a list of the currently assigned menu-item numbers. If you need a number for an official udeb, don't just grab one, but ask on first.

Please do not allocate numbers with too high a granularity. If you have two packages, A and B, and A depends on B, then main-menu will always put A after B. There is no need to assign different numbers to the two; one number will do and will be more flexible, and help avoid BASIC line number disease. In other words, having a bunch of menu items with the same number is a feature, not a bug. Use different menu items only to break ties and do gross positioning in the menu.

For the Squeeze release these numbers were multiplied by 100 from what they were before to give more flexibility.
