Excellent memory Brad.  I worked in NEAT/3 for 2 yrs and I cant even recall 
what the syntax looked like.  Wish I had saved my old manuals.  A web search 
turned up very little.  There was NEAT/3 level I and level II.  You could do 
more damage in level II. Not as assembler oriented as it sounds though. We had 
a complete payroll system written in NEAT/3.
