The negative sign in eg Z-6_ in the body of your programme must be character 173 . (Or maybe not - Could you please try character 45, the regular minus sign, & see if that works?)

The following, typed directly on the 50g keyboard, uses character 45 (an ordinary hyphen), and fails to assemble:

"EQU Z-9_ 2733F
:: Z-9_ ;
@"

However, if both hyphens are replaced by the character 173 (a "soft hyphen" character in modern fonts), then it does assemble correctly.

This is really annoying, since that makes typing these "short form" zints almost impossible on the 50g keyboard.
