This is a very interesting article:

http://www.6502.org/source/interpreters/sweet16.htm

.. in which Woz describes the SWEET16 extension "16-bit VM" he invented for use in some Apple ][ machines .. thought some of you guys might appreciate reading the details of some historic bit of computing.

Sweet16 is very interesting indeed. Just month ago I posted on forums.oric.org my very quick and dirty "port" for Oric of the original Woz source.
Here you are:

The test code at end of the source copies first line 10 times.
In the other forum user called "assinie" wrote very interesting details about sweet16 too.
