Woo, three hours of programming. I'm sure a lot of the demo party veterans could do something with it, but they'd probably prefer a machine code monitor as part of the tools. Hmm, maybe the Apple ][ and/or Atari 800 has a such utility built in or included in the DOS? Could be interesting to see any results posted after the VCF has been.
