Hey Kassen-Thanks for the quick reply ...

That is a bummer. I kinda had a feeling that might be the case. I guess that
is why I inquired.

I like the Mini but I really like Vim. That is really the only reason I use
the shell.

 I mainly edit .ck files in Vim in one window and then run 'chuck --shell'
in another window to add and remove shreds and occasionally call a method
from a public class to change tempo or key globally. Nothing that couldn't
be done in the Mini.

Those abandoned shell plans you mention sound awesome. I hope someday (maybe
with more and more people live coding) the shell becomes a priority again.
