Re: 8032: $Exxx ROM area

Hi All,

I think there are different versions of the PET usage of the $E000-$E7FF
but I don't remember the details.
I know that in the CBM 8xxx models the E000-E7FF PET use this area as
the screen editor code.
The area $E900-$EFFF is being used - I think - by internationalized
of the PET screen editor ROM (some CBM 8xxx). IIRC the I/O Area was
either 2k
($E800-$EFFF) or 256 byte ($E800-$E8FF) depending on the PET model. So
for the 
newer PET versions there will be a ROM area.
I don't remember how the ROM was actually accessed and whether it was
mirrored. I would have to
dive back into the schematics again... :-)
