z80 emulator running cp/m v1.3
William says: ...That's exactly my point. The CP/M 1.3 BDOS is only 0C00H bytes long so it offers a larger TPA than CP/M 3. The 1.4 BDOS is 0D00H long. In both cases the BIOS is tiny.

SID DDT etc caution
Ed says: ...It's more of a surprise than anything. One would expect a debugger should be able to run a standard program through to completion without crashing. Because DDT initialized SP to 100h it's likely subsequent debuggers felt obliged to follow for reasons of compatibility.
