That is the same as the PET Rabbit.  I have the PET Rabbit docs
at home (along with the cassette version for 32K machines, s/n 0078,
and Rabbit in ROM for BASIC2).  I can look up the full range of
commands tomorrow night.

I do not know what the tape format itself is.  I have several PET
Rabbit tapes that I need to spool off to disk, but my BASIC2 machine
is down with a dirty/defective keyboard.  If there is some utility
I can run that will display/analyze the tape pattern, I have a
variety of equipment to check the tape with.

Is there a program I can run on your C2N232 when attached to a PET
that could sniff the format on a save?
