In order to enter a program from the line editor you need to enter
line numbers in order to tell BASIC what order to put them in - but
other than that they are irrelevant. Even when entering a program
using a screen editor, the line numbers are still there, just not
displayed. Try dropping to the command line and loading a BASIC
program and listing it.
