couple of points that makes life a little harder
(like there is no right-click menu to copy, paste,
etc.), but not a big deal. There is one thing though,
which I believe is a bug, or, say an oversight on your
Not being very fond of editing test on the command
prompt, I define some functions in a text file. Then
copy the definition, and paste it using the system
menu on the left upper corner of the console window.
Here what happens:
If my file is saved with \n line endings, and code
spans over multiple lines, everything works OK. But if
the file is saved as a usual windows text file (in
Notepad, say) I get strange errors. You could say
"well, then save it as a unix text file", but I use
the same method for a couple of different interpreters
to try my code, and if I do so, comment lines creates
a problem for them. this necessitates to maintain two
version of each file, headache...
To illustrate the problem, I attached a sample session
in a text file. Please note that #\[ is read L#[ by
interpreter, which is obviously a problem.
If I type it on the program window, it works.
