  • EDITOR64 - editor program for assembler for the high memory aera ($C000); start with SYS 49152.
  • ASSEMBLER64 - editor program for assembler of EDITOR64 for the normal memory aera ($0800); start with RUN.
  • HI- and LO-Loader - load and move machine language code programs to another memory address (load with LOAD "LOLOADER64",8 (version $0800) and start with RUN; load with LOAD "HILOADER64",8,1 and start with SYS 51200.
  • MONITOR$C000 and MONITOR$8000 - (hexadecimal load and start address of the machine langugae code monitores, also start with SYS 49152 or SYS 32768).
