Look man, no one on this list needs your mouth or your problems. You
obviously havn't read the docs or visited www.ticalc.org, half the stuff you're
asking is already well documented in the on-line FAQs, fargo docs, or beginners
guides (what's an opcode? come on!) You're trying to tell me you have better
methods for setting up fargo and the TI-Calc operating system and memory map
and you can't even find the shift key on your key board!
There are hundreds of dissassemblers, and as many assemblers, at least two
emulators for the TI-92, and uncountable numbers for the 68000 chip. If you
want to reinvent the wheel, I'll be happy to attach a new model to my programs,
but Fargo is an elegant and well thought out interface. It deserves better
respect than your attitude.
