I have some assembly code that I plan to write in the near future. 
Actually was dusting off my old COCO3 and disk drives and load up 
the OS9 development system. Actuallythe whole project will be a 
mix of C and assembly. Some of the timing critical routines are 
going to be done in assembly. Top level in C.
