I've gotten a bit of my Mathy code to run.  A lot of my Replica 1  
programs just run without any changes.  The most taxing is my pi  
program ( it is actually simple - just uses the Monte Carlo method.  )  
BUT, I had to change the rnd() statements to use 1 instead of 0 since  
0 uses the hardware clock for a seed.  I have some graphics programs  
I'd like to run - like my cyclotron simulator.

Also, I did a little hack so I could type things in lowercase and have  
it converted to capitals.

I might have some stuff to contribute, but I don't really want to be  

Any change we could get the source for the apple1basic?  I'd love to  
port that to my Sun box as well.

And if you care, the cbmbasic runs nicely on a Ultrasparc running Open
