About This File

A "unix" like Dos Shell with a bunch of builtin commands to make day to day file operations (much) more convenient than via a Basic prompt. Requires R41.

Tip: save this as AUTOBOOT.X16 to your sdcard and it will load every time you start the emulator.

Short description of the commands and Source code (Prog8) available here https://github.com/irmen/cx16shell/

What's New in Version 1.1   See changelog


Added external commands (or 'plugins') support.

Details on how to write those are on the github page.

Very helpful program for testing my programs output and the like.

One note: cat doesn't recognize \r\n as one line break, not two. Otherwise, no problems at all

Response from the author:

Hey, thanks for the review! I am glad you find this somewhat experimental tool useful!

About the "cat" command: it doesn't interpret the file contents in any way, it simply writes the bytes to the screen. Please check how the "\r" and "\n"  characters are encoded in your file because there is no equivalent to a Line Feed vs Carriage Return.  I suspect your file simply contains two successive $0D bytes there?
