Dialog looks interesting, any chance that the source for Tethered will be released?

This would be incredibly helpful. Whilst the manual and standard rules help having a fully worked example would be a bonus.

I love this! :D I would have liked more sustain at 0:32 though.

Although you say v7 is too slow to play, I'm more interested in just exploring how the system works.

I have downloaded and run some of the examples from your dialog program and am working through the docs (prolog newbie)

How would I get a v7 *.gblorb file into zeugma ?

I've tried using babel, but it only generates a blorb and / or ulx file.

Sorry for any confusion, I realize that dialog has nothing to do with v7 / babel :) Just meant that I'm trying all the tool chains.

A case against syntax highlighting

As an old-skool programmer, learned to type on a hollerith punchcard machine, having just started in an environment where every syntax colouriser under the sun has been applied I find it hugely distracting. But that's my personal preference, the guy I took over clearly loves his coloured object. I just find some of the colours are really unreadable. I suspect that there's a median ground that most people would accept is helpful and the uncoloured or completely garish schemes are probably less acceptable to most. However, it's likely that each of us depending on our history would settle on a different level of highlighting of text. Me, I go for the correctly indented, black text on pale ground, even Linux's habits of colouring the ls output grates. Why is a .png purple and .deb and .gz and .zip red? Do I care that the red ones are all compressed files of some type? One one needs unzip, one needs gunzip and one is an installer package and making them all highlighted in red is zero value.

What is the easiest way to have it in different mem region f.e. from 0400 to 0700?

Nice chat. Only one addition: The graph would be more readable if every node on the conventional route was highlighted.
