@TechShark, damn! That's hardcore. I had to MLX an assember w/ this book, then I can LDA to my heart's content

one of them old compute books was for the C=128 and had a macro assembler listed in hex that i keyed in and used to do assembly on the 128 - woot!!  plus i had a C compliler from Spinaker software and i could use the C code to call the assembly code ...  that was some fun times !
