I\m not sure about enhancing the CX EDitor, but I'm ruminating on a couple of potential new projects. The first one is getting the FORTH module to a more stable state, which right now it appears it's not. Every time I look into that one I see a tremendous amount of work done with a good structure and approach, but not quite complete. I need to revise my notes as well as the few threads on that subject from the forum that were posted in the past.

The second is the extension of the OS to allow for more registers and RAM access - and here we're talking 41CL only. The Expanded memory module uses all the extra RAM space above 1FFF but the OS is not. On initial (light) inspection I encountered a couple of road blocks why it wouldn't work but I'm still not throwing the towel. Mind you, modifying the OS is a *very* touchy subject that one should not attempt unless absolutely all consequences have been clearly studied...

Of course these two are tall orders, probably only approachable joining forces with other folks (too much for a solo project). Partners in crime are welcome (Greg, you reading this? :-)

Hmmm, not having played with FORTH that much I think I need to review the standards and what I would expect from the HP41 modules already created, and review the problems with that solution...

I once thought about patching the OS to allow more RAM / XRAM area, but ran into a few roadblocks that caused that action to cease (for example, many synthetic programs would no longer work). I then realized I need more experience with MCODE before thinking about that effort again, and I still don't think I have enough of that!
