Only the load - but that is certainly an issue on 8-bit machines... > My suggestion was borne out of my efforts to port a complex program from > the C-64 to the PET. I spent weeks poring over a disassembly of the C-64 Porting from a program written to be non-portable (by using kernel routines directly) is a different issue. When I wrote BDOS, I already used a jump table and it was really easy to build a new user interface when the 64er magazin said that command line was not good enough :-) > side-effects from the PET ROM code.

I hope I don't promise too much, but wait for the next release.... Also the PET and VIC20 emulators are quite improved :-) Andre -- Email address may be invalid.
