*snip*  I've got to catch up on my back reading ...

But I saw this and *had* to respond!

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?
