Presumably that sort of information is included in an ICs datasheet?

Yep, but it's not always obvious when you're not used to reading data sheets.

Often it's shown as a little triangle on the logic diagram.

Also if anything is called a "clock" you can be 98% sure it's edge triggered.

And the description will often say "on the rising edge of XX" sort of thing.

Then as a last resort there's the timing diagrams.

Good one, and it only took a year. Getting paid by the hour were you :)

There was a great retro project here some time ago, a real Jules Verne style computer. I can't find it now but IIRC the keyboard was made from old typewriter keys etc. Looked great.

Haha!

About 1 month to do and then 10 months to get round to documenting it! :)
