Well, were it just an extra editable file, sure I could, no problem.  
MacQuake is a very good example of a Mac-app that has the PC-feel.  There 
are cfg files and the whole slew of crazy text files to edit.  Not so in 

What I meant (and didn't make very clear) is that the way MacStella is 
created (apparently), all these files were turned into binary when it was 
compiled.  That's why I need the source.  There's no STELLA.VCS in 
MacStella.  Just the executable, the TIA sound library, a "ROM-typer", 
and lots of readme's.  I've actually never seen the DOS version, though I 
did download the source this morning.  After I look at it I'll probably 
dissemble the Mac version and see if they make any sense together.  Then, 
since it's the year 2040 before I've finished doing this in my spare 
time, I'll celebrate my third quarter century of existence.  *sigh*

Thanks for the help,
