Byronic Shell v0.3 Released
Posted on 14 August 1998, 02:41 GMT

[Byronic Shell Screenshot]
Kirk Meyer has just released Byronic Shell v0.3 for the TI-86. This new version, at 1056 bytes, features program groups and a trash can. If you delete a program that is not in the trash group, it is moved into the trash group. Deleting programs in the trash group will delete them from your calculator. In a sense, this acts like the familiar Recycle Bin. You can also move programs between groups. Plans for future versions include ZShell emulation and plug-in support.

Good job Kirk! a lot of people recently have been complaining about the abundance of assembly shells on the 86. Why? l don't see any point in hindering the progress of programs on any calculators, and especially free assembly programs. Just one year ago, There was turbobreakout, penguins, and l think Aurora and a couple of other things. Even if there is no "standard" in assembly shells, at least there will be plenty to choose from.

Congrats on the new version! I told Chicane that he should put a trash can in his shell, and he refused. I think that it is a wonderful idea, and that it should be used in more shells. Would it be possible to put something in the code for copying programs? Of course the programs would have to be renamed....or is there a way to rename the programs? WTG!!!!

There is an easier way to duplicate programs or to rename them: it's to do asmcomp(name,newname).
You end up with two programs name and newname.

For TI-Basic programs it's even easier: create a new program and recall the one you want

I wouldn't say that copying basic programs is easier. but who really cares

I care I think it is easier to copy basic programs than asm. p.s. If you have a ti-86 I can buy...I accidentaly broke mine ;) ;)!!!!!!!!!

you're assuming that the basic program is unlocked. for locked basic programs, you can't do anything with them without an assembly program. (or a computer :)

There is a program called Edit Engine that will copy, rename, create,and delete programs. It does a lot more, but I can't think of it at the moment. =)
