Well, as I mentioned before, I still have my old Apple 2 floppy disks.  
I've got a couple Apple 2c's and 3 2GSes that should be able to run it.  
I don't have any docs, nor do I remember how the editor works...  But at 
the moment I'm more interested in seeing how much better 16-color 
pictures look with a 12-bit palette on the CoCo3FPGA.  And it might not 
be too hard to coax view into mapping 256 color .GIFs to CoCo3FPGA's 
8-bit color mode.  If that goes well, I might even try to get it to do 
the two screen flickervision thing using two 256 color images.  One step 
at a time though.
