On one boring long O/S flight I keyed in every program in the C1520 user
manual. Only problem is I have not run a conversion utility to take them
from TXT to CBM BASIC. If you're interested I can send you a zip of these
TXT files + the BASIC tokenising program I was going to use when I get back
home. I'm sure there will be some typos, but was hoping they would serve as
a good benchmark for the emulator.

I have 2.5 C1520 printers, but no working pens. The 0.5 in 2.5 means one is
also missing a couple of gear wheels... seems to be a common problem. BTW:
The Sony HitBit plotter also has the same pens.
