Tony, thanks for the info. But why do I need to go to forth for
this? why cant someone show me how to hand compile the jmc.pdf
into an assembly code like L. Peter Deutsch, a 13-15 year old
kid wrote and PUBLISHED as the first author, making money from
the ARPA grant because his father worked in the area and he
had the connections to get the info from the place where it was
discovered. I suspect they thought that the kid is safer and
less competitive than some grown up to share the info.
