Set locations &3D-&3E to PAGE (The Program Start address) [Where the LSB (&3D) is #&00].
This defaults the RESTORE Line Number to be PAGE - This &3D-&3E value will be overwritten by the Line Number
specified after the RESTORE Keyword (if a Line Number is specified).

Call &8EE0 to get the next non-space character pointed to by BASIC Text Pointer A.
Decrement the BASIC Text Pointer A offset [&0A] so that Text Pointer A points to the non-space character.

If the next non-space character is not the end of Statement (I.e. ':', '<cr>', 'ELSE-token') then we need to read
the Line Number to RESTORE from, by:
* [&B964] Calling routine &B82A to get the Line Number after the RESTORE keyword, Issue 'No such
    line' error if the Line doesn't exist and set &3D-&3E to the start address of the specified
    Program Line.
[&B967] Call routine &9BA6 to check that the statement terminates correctly with a ':', '<cr>'
or 'ELSE-token' character, issuing 'Syntax error' if it doesn't.

Set the DATA Pointer (&1C-&1D) to the DATA start address specified (the address stored in &3D-&3E,
i.e. either PAGE, or the start address of the Program Line specified).

Jump to &9005 to continue running the program by executing the next program statement.
