 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 ?
