I shall have a look there but - frankly - after your recent post I  
expected that you have some ready routines, which can do in 2-3  
seconds what I need 10 for. Crawling through the completely  
uncommented disassembly will have to wait a bit.

It might give some light even if reading/converting on a non-8bit  
machine is not really relevant. I'll check Aminet but if you recall  
the name, I'd be glad to hear it.
