Thanks Peter,

  matherp said  In both cases there are reasons you may wish to read a byte that isn't word aligned


My suggestion wouldn't preclude that, e.g.
Peek(Byte Peek(VarTblAddr) + offset)


though you could argue for:
Peek(Byte Mm.Info(VarTblAddr) + offset)


  matherp said  so I don't intend to change this. You can do something completely different in the Linux port as this is of minority interest


Fair enough, I probably won't as I don't envision much call for extensions beyond the capabilities of the CMM2 and PicoMite that aren't specifically related to interacting with a "real" operating-system.

Best wishes,

Tom
