BASIC 1 did not come with the "TIM" monitor - I started on a 4K PET at our local main library, so when we got a 2001-32N (3032), I was very surprised and pleased that TIM was in ROM. It is quite simplistic - you can dump memory, alter memory (in hex), load and save blocks of memory to tape (disk, too, AFAIK, but we didn't own a floppy drive back then) and jump to a point in memory. It's still lots better than nothing. -ethan Message was sent through the cbm-hackers mailing listReceived on 2009-11-27 19:00:04
