Hello gentlemen,

Does anyone know if the Synertek 6502 is 100% compatible with its MOS 
cousin? I have one which I tried in an otherwise working PET and I get 
"31653.4784 BYTES FREE" instead of 31743, which is 89.5216 bytes short :-/

I know some of the later CMOS incarnations did not have the same 
behaviour with undefined op-codes but a) this a 1984 chip and b) I can't 
believe the PET kernal would use them anyway.

It is also possible that this chip is just duff of course.
