>> Wouldn't all this be so much simpler if we just had the inverse of the
EXTRCT opcode?  Why wasn't it built at the same time as EXTRCT?

I agree it would be very useful. Perhaps it's not there because it is hard to
think up a good name <grin> EXTRACT is good but what is the opposite ?? None of
the candidates I can think of are a real good fit for a variety of reasons. For
example INSERT, POKE, PUSH, REPLACE, CHANGE are all in the 'close but no cigar'
category.

Anyone want to play name the opcode ?
