	Your disassembler sounds interesting.  I am at work right now, but will
check it out tonight!  The main thing lacking in my disassembler is the
ability to disassemble bank-switched games.  It's not that big of a deal,
since somebody that knows what they are doing can generally do it manually.
 The code I use to distinguish between code and data is fairly simple and
I'd be happy to explain it.
	I would be very interested in working together to create a better
disassembler, what language is yours written in?

for VCS but for Atari 800XL, Atari 5200 and Oric (all 6502 processors).

disassemble a file into a window and it shows the dump in another one. Then
if you see that some byte should be disassembled as .WORD you can tell the
disassembler. It then disassemble again using .WORD directive for the bytes
you selected.

we can do something together to enhance (and to customize it for VCS
