fter compaints about the variable Q, the
annoying, changing banner atop the screen and the large font,
it appears Jason was listening.
OS-82 is OShell-82...only better. Graphically, OShell has
been given a complete overhaul. OS-82 features a nice menu similar
to UsGuard for those of you who own an 85. The Main Menu allows you
to run your programs, exit the shell, or shut down the calculator.
A highlighted bar makes using the shell very simple. No memorizing
what key does what, OS-82 is simple up arrow, down arrow, enter
access. Want to view more programs? Press enter on More Programs.
Interesting concept, huh? OS-82 also features the menu-style font
for longer file descriptions. OS-82 is a major improvement
over its predecessor, OShell.
Don't worry, OS-82 is still OShell-82 internally. No conversion
utility needed to convert OShell games to OS-82. Jason has stated
in the docs. that OS-82 now supports all of the ROM_CALLS. One,
minor internal change, which doesn't affect programs, is the
removal of the ''Q'' variable as the ''shell interrupt.'' Thank
you Jason! He now uses ''invalid'' variables called Web and
GridOn. Do NOT delete these,
else your calc. will crash.
The facelift was good to OShell and it's now easier to use and
just better looking.
