Ahhh yes. Fun to be a programmer back then. Life was so much simpler.
I don't pretend to be any sort of expert on the hardware end. I
fortunately have all the manuals (I don't understand them fully, but I have
Figure 2.0-1 in the Z80 and Z80A Technical Manual shows an 8 bit data bus
and a 16 bit address bus. The 'registers' may be accessed as 8 bit
registers or as 16 bit register pairs. I guess that's what you mean by
'just sort of'.
Thanks for the clarification.
