Chicane Updates MiniShell Enhanced For 86
Posted by Nick on 2 October 1999, 18:48 GMT

ZAPO revealed that Chicane has released a new version of MiniShell Enhanced, or MSE, for the 86. New features include external modules to detect variables and ZAC source and include files. Congrats to Chicane on making a good thing even better!

I've never used MSE, I've either not used a shell at all or used Rascall if I wanted to run a TI-85 program. What's so great about this?

Well that depends upon what you use your calculator for. If you keep a ton of programs on your calc all the time, the regular PRGM menu can get quite large, and hard to use. Shells are simply used to make running programs an easier process. Using 'folder grouping' in a shell allows you to sort your programs so you dont have to look at your basic programs and asm programs at the same time. MSE has 7 regular folders, plus the recycle bin, which is technically just another folder, but has different deletion properties. MSE is especially useful for programmers who use the new Z80 Assembly Compiler written by Clem, or AsmIDE by Jonah Cohen. This is because, MSE passes the variable name directly to the program, so you dont have to run through the list of source code.

ZAPO's woes

Chicane and everyone else (more or less) has quit ZAPO, and one |Jinx| (formerly leetjinx of efnet, and yes, he was as lame as his nick suggests) is the only on really doing anything, which is primarily posting on the news page at ZAPO. this group is in a cryogenically phrozen state at the moment (like i said, more or less).

No, very wrong. Ask any current ZAPO member, we are all working hard on projects and as a group. As for jinx, yes he was quite lame with our #zapo channel, which is well resolved, hehe. But as for the news, you have no idea what your talking about. That was Jeffery Malone, a lame, former member.

Not listening to anything Jinx says is generally a good rule to follow... We're still alive and well as a group. Congrats Chicane

MiniShell is a cool shell only if you need each and every byte of RAM on your 86 (which I don't) I use my big luxurious Rascall. Rascall is the king of 86 Shells. No Shell comes even close to the beauty of the ease-of-use, style, and pretty layout. Not to mention that Rascall sounds better then the other lame shells for the 86 (what kinda of name is ASE, MSE, or Anocanda, yeesh! - Sorry in advanced to the writers of these shells). Sure Rascall is no longer being worked on, but really what options are missing (Oh, I want to delete files from inside the shell (being sarcastic)). Anyways, my point is Rascall rules.
