I would love to have the reference manual. I found petio.txt now, thanks.
If you could send me the reference manual by email? That would
be nice.

If you don't already know, VICE contains not only a C64 and a VIC20
but also a PET 3032/4032/8032 emulator.
I can probably extend it to a 8296 emulator when I have more info.
Do you know the difference between the 8032 and the 8096 and the
differences between the 8096 and the 8296?
