What I recall is a command that was placed in the CMD directory.  My hazy 
memory is that it was called with arguments, something on the order of 
PNP,##,##,##.  This could be called from a Script, Basic09 procedure or from 
the command line.  I thinking it was Tx only.  Interactive X-10 was down the 
road a year or three when I got it.

I don't have the time this week root it out, fire up a CoCo, X-10 module and 
verify my memory. (I don't recall if it ran on Level 2 or not.)  I have two 
classes in school where the last chapter test and/or the final test form the 
pass or repeat pivot.  Finals on April 30 and May 02.  Then the honey-do 
list kicks in.  I'll put a post-it note in the calendar for half past May.
