So I have a loader software and then I have the software that adds more code but doesn't overwrite the previous code

Hello.
In BASIC, you have the "MERGE" command...
Just make sure the line numbers don't overlap the "main" program.

Is this is Sharp Basic SP5025 (The one that came with the MZ80K which is the only sharp PC i have running). I'd like to use this concept in a quiz game.

Just tried it in SP-5025 and no, there's no MERGE command.
