QUESTION

Is it possible to modify the monitor to write words instead of bytes?

ANSWER

This is possible, but not easy to do.

While it is possible to modify the monitor to read and write only words, it does not necessarily make much sense.

One reason is that data downloaded to the monitor comes in 1 byte at a time (that is how the serial port works). If the monitor were modified to write words, it would have to save the first byte and wait for the second half of the word to be received.
