Thanks! I knew if I trolled hard enough for compliments I could
get a few ;-)

Here's an idea: would it be worthwhile to make a webpage 
based on the same core code, where you could cut and paste
or upload a list file? Eh, probably not as useful as an .exe

I'm still open for ideas for other kinds of scans I can do ...
once Manuel opened by eyes to the DASM -l option,  well, it's
*a lot* easier to analyze than the raw .asm!

I don't quite understand what your Macro below does or how 
it works.  Is it a "DASM" Macro, or something in your text
editor? Actually, a tutorial on that kind of Macros in general
might be good for the community...I know you've gained some
converts for your sleep Macro. I don't know where to look for 
documentation, if there's anything better than prowling through
the stella archives...
