Not in Free42 as far as I recall, but maybe in txt2raw. Either way, that's a reasonable change to make, and so is...

I prefer having lowercase x's, but I can live with '*' if they would be accepted everywhere.

Just found out this one:

RCL/ ST Z is not recognized, but
STO/ ST Z is

Hm apparently it's the RCL's that are the problem here as STO* is accepted.

Basically, the parser expects 42S spellings, but it applies certain substitutions to make it handle 41 listings as well. It does not, as a rule, handle mixtures of those spellings within an instruction, but I guess it would be better if it did, since not all listings are actual 100% consistent print-out captures, and humans shouldn't have to worry about the differences between STO*, ST*, STOx, and STOƗ, or between STO ST Z and STO Z, etc. etc. etc.
