RE: STAMP command specs?

I've looked thru Tom's QBasic program and disassembled it for most of the
STAMP commands, I think.  I could clean-up my notes and post them as the
TN-46 addendum.  Just to be sure, what's the latest/greatest version of the
code? (Just to make sure I'm looking at the right one.)
