Actually the tiny versions for PATB are about 6K.  The first, by Dr. Li
Chen Wang, who wrote PATB itself, was published in the Peoples Computer
Company journal in the summer of 1976; it's an adaptation of Lynn
Cochran's version for the Altair 8800.  That, and an slightly smaller
version which Bruce Sherry adapted from the PCC listing, are both on my
webpage, along with lots of other versions.
