You're right about the 6502 in the C64. My brother worked for a software
company in Silicon Valley way back when and wrote many games in assembly
language on that processor for the Commodore. He then went to work for a
modem company writing drivers for the same processor in their modems. Man,
we've come a long way, BABY!!!
All my assembly programming was on the Intel processors in IBM PC's. It's
been so long ago now that I can hardly remember a thing about it. What a
shame. Do you think it is like riding a bike? Maybe if I try, it will all
come back to me! Later.
