- New BASIC shell idea

I had a good idea for a shell that just runs BASIC programs. You can select different programs and run them, but when you end the program, it saves the variables in a push down stack, and allows you to look at open ďwindowsĒ, select which ones to run, and edit which ones are open. To avoid having to store all the matrices and lists, which would gobble down RAM, it might prescan the programs and only store the variables involved, or only run programs that only use certain variables (e.g. only letter variables, or only L1 allowed.) I only just downloaded the C toolchain, but it does some weird things with my terminal shell (zsh), and it has a weird error when I try to compile programs. I might have to jailbreak the calculator (I havenít enabled editing asm programs yet), and learn native hex assembly, since I donít think ICE is powerful enough to make a shell, so Iím having trouble with actually writing it and using it on calc, but I have a pretty good conceptual idea of it. I havenít picked out a name yet, though.
