;; DISPLAY A BYTE AS A 3-DIGIT DECIMAL NUMBER
;;
;; Enter:
;; A = 8-bit value
;;
;; Exit:
;; AF,BC corrupt. All other registers preserved
;;
;; NOTE: A) The display routine works by the following procedure:
;;
;;       1) The 8-bit value is divided by 100 then 10 and finally 1 to obtain
;;          each digit value. Therefore 983 would produce 9,8 and 3 as each
;;          digit.
;;       2) The digit is converted into ASCII form, and displayed.
;;       3) The remainder of the division, is used for the next division.
;;          i.e. 983 divided by 100, leaves 83 as the remainder. This is
;;               divided by 10, to give 3 as the remainder.
;;
;;       B) In the routine,
;;
;;          B = divisor (100,10,1)
;;          C = digit value
;;          A = dividend (8-bit value)
