Hi Ullrich,

yes indeed the PET kernal jump table at the end of kernal space is
quite underdeveloped. In fact many useful jumps are missing as you
state. Even the jumps for LOAD/SAVE that are available in BASIC4
kernals are actually part of the BASIC interpreter - they expect
to read the device number etc directly from the BASIC command
using fucntions that finally use CHRGET and friends. So there is
no use in calling those calls from ML.
