Pilot for the C-64 does sound much more plausible, yes.. And likewise, I
thought it was a very nice idea.
But hm.. other than formatting text, don't both the VIC-20 and C-64 share
the same CBM BASIC version? No reason that PILOT for C-64 couldn't run on
VIC, with enough memory expansion, I'd think?
