It's probably not that far off. I found the program that Larry Morse
first did for interactive specimen identification before I entered Grad
School. It takes 64K to run. (At the time it probably had a limit of
64K for data too -- and that stretched the limits of the computer.) Most
of your hand-help calculators have a memory of at least 64K now.
How programmable *is* a Palm Pilot?
