It would become VERY slow! This would be due to the fact that you would be
switching to/from the TI-OS a zillion times just to get a list of programs.
However, the ASM program would have to edit the Basic program to display
the proper results which would result in a trillion crashes on your calc
before you got it right. The moral: Stick with ASM or with TI-Basic...not
