Here's a first-cut sample of how something might look. <http://penguincentral.com/retrocomputing/PET/mmaps/PET-BASIC_2.0_zeropage.html> After getting it to this stage, one of the things I thought might be nice would be to use GIFs rather than background colors, then have alt-tags that named the location and what it did on that machine - so you could hover over and see *why* a location was the color it was. As it is now, it's useful to someone who knows a bit about how the ROMs work and just wants to check where they can stick some little tidbit. I think most folks who are going to be programming a PET in assembler probably already have their favorite locations, but this might com in handy if you normally use the same few places over and over, and suddenly need an extra 10-20 spots to stuff pointers and such. Please let me know if this sort of map is interesting and I'll see about cranking out a few more for the platforms I know well. -ethan Message was sent through the cbm-hackers mailing list
