I noticed there is a Forth Assembler part number for "with and without" a debugger. My part number is for the with debugger. Wonder how I verify that? Wink Is the debugger a hardware item, or another ROM, or part of the Assembler?


You didn't call that part U10, I did. Schematically speaking, it needs a reference designator. U10 is just the next number in the series.

Yes, the F/A module was later marketed with a debugger, but it's software. The physical ROM is the same.

The IDS, however, mentions a hardware Debugger ROM several times. I suspect that U10 is where it was to be installed. Also of interest, the Service ROM contains a debugger very similar to the 82478A Debugger, but it's undocumented(!)
