Right, I removed all comments from cax.x before feeding it to cas.

I ran cas twice under SIMH.  Once with the fixed cas.x as per above, and
once on scope.v.  Then I cat'ed the output files and captured the
contents in a log file.

Note that the comment about c6 is corrent, the end is missing.  I guess
there were a few more lines on another page, but that page went missing.

I see cas.x and scope.v has been under scrutiny now.  Great!  Please
also consider cas.s.  Though maybe it has been reviewed well already
since it runs fine.
