grammatical
Unfortunately, that's missing the following.
IT'S = IT HAS
IME there are many primary school teachers who fail to understand this, as a quick nose around the TES forum should confirm.

True, but that's just a different tense of "it is", so technically it's not a different grammar point. If teachers fail to grasp that different tenses also apply, then that's a different (although equally worrying) problem.

I'm probably not the right person with whom to engage in discussion on the state of grammar education in today's primary schools, however, or to engage on most topics to do with "da yoof of today". Not unless you want to read through several pages of rants.

Uh? How is "has" a different tense of "is"? The former is from "have", the latter from "to be". Are you thinking of "was"?

[Edit: OK, I guess it's used in the past tense - so maybe you're right.]

All these education points are absolutely fascinating but, without wishing to press the point too much, are we getting any nearer to the answer to my initial question? wink

Build the whole thing with SDL 1.2.7 and you can even have a new RISC OS version smile

I would love to give it a try but unfortunately I can't promise that I'd have any significant amount of time the next year and half or so.

If there is a debascruncher out there that can handle munged names, I'll give it a crack.

After crunching you can't automatically discover the meanings of variables and function names that have been reduced to random short strings.

There are basdecrunchers that can reindent a program and change all the SWI numbers to names.

I stumbled upon this http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SimSig a few minutes ago and somehow remembered this thread and figured I should give those that might be interested a hint.
