Yes, but try and find it today. Fig forth is for the 8080 and 6502 with I/O
supplied by the user and ASM source. While I suspect you can get a
version for the 8088 I don't expect you can get the source for it.
Read keyboard, test keyboard ready, print to screen, read disk block,
write disk block I think is all that is needed.
PS did the Jupiter Ace ever have floppy disk?
