A fairly standard utility program featuring the usual machine code facilities, with the useful options of reading the stack and using FORTH words interactively from within the monitor.

A bufferfull of bytes can be poked directly into nominated addresses, but there is no provision for reading the amount of memory left and the monitor will cheerfully list the contents of non-existent memory addresses - try FFFF!

Hex, octal and decimal bases are available, but the main display uses only half the screen and there is no automatic carriage return between successive inputs.

This produces a rather untidy display and provides less information than the Remsoft toolkit with which this monitor will inevitably be compared.
