I used something like that before I had the luxury of a diskette drive on
the MITS Altair. But I don't recall a 2-pass mode from paper tape, just a
BASIC-type editor that read the source into memory (or created it); each
statement had a line number. Assembly in place--i.e. no intermediate
binary output was the normal mode.
It wasn't a MITS-original product, but i think I got it from a friend who
had an IMSAI 8080. It may have even come from something like a Processor
tech box. When I got my first disk, I dropped it like a hot potato.
