      I has seen that one but haven't used it.
      How did you get it to assemble without errors?

      ./p8a music.pa
      # ^
      # ERROR: music.pa @ line 18, can't combine memory-reference instructions
      illegal character:'<'

      Also, this is likely one that would work with MACRO-8, but I've not tried it. Over 2400 baud, it'd take it a little while to assemble with three passes, I'd think. The syntax matches what MACRO-8 supports, anyways.
