I'm using real(  for selecting fonts now. 

For those of you interested, Select(), like Output(), is a class 2 function.  It is difficult for a custom parser to work with class 2 functions.
There are people who can speak two languages, and they are called bilingual.  There are people who speak three languages and are therefore trilingual.  Then there are people who speak one language, and these people are called Americans.

Class 2 is a lot of Ti-Basic programming functions, such as If, While, End and Goto.  Output( is a class 2 function because you can't use it outside of a Ti-Basic program.  (A goof-up by the Ti-OS)

Oh, so it was just a mistake? I've always thought it was annoying how it couldn't be used from the homescreen.

It was done on purpose.  By goof-up, I mean that TI once again stinks at OS development

I guess they thought it would be best to disallow basic control/output commands from being used on the home screen. If I remember, some casio calcs allowed you to use those commands on the home screen, but I might be wrong. It might be more commands but not all.
