There was actually a Cursor (demo) program that did that. Unfortunately, I've never seen it work reliably. IIRC, that was on an older model PET that still was 60Hz, so maybe there are more subtle timing differences between european and american PETs than that. Or it was simply sloppily programmed, of course. Cycle-counting had certainly not become the art as it became on the 64. > Andre -Olaf. -- ___ Olaf 'Rhialto' Seibert rhialto(at)mbfys-dot-kun.nl "I would be dead in \X/ a week if I didn't do /something/.
