Well, what type of a shell?  In pure Basic (or even hybrid basic with only xLib), listing programs arbitrarily (so, like external programs like MirageOS or DCS does) will be a problem.  However, if you just want to show things like built in programs, then that's simple.

For the former, I suggest reading a full tutorial about Assembly, since if you're going to make a shell like that you'll need at the very least an intermediate understanding of assembly and how the VAT and OS works at a much lower level than BASIC provides.  If the latter, then you're in business, feel free to ask any BASIC-related questions here.

If you want to go with a Hybrid BASIC approach, I would suggest using Celtic III. It has commands for listing programs and dealing with their content, etc. It also has decent xLib compatibility.

My projects haven't been worked on in a while, so they're all on hiatus for the time being. I do hope to eventually return to them in some form or another...

Axe port of Pokemon Red/Blue to the 83+/84+ family. On hold.

Spoiler For Nostalgia:
My big personal project, an original RPG about dimensional travel and a few heroes tasked with saving the world.
Coding-wise, on hold, but I am re-working the story.

Spoiler For Finale's Super Insane Tunnel Pack of Doom:
I will be combining Blur and Collision Course into a single gamepack. On hold.

Spoiler For Nostalgia Origins: Sky's Story:
Prequel to Nostalgia. On hold, especially while the story is re-worked.

First, please don't double post. Doing so is against the forum rules.
Quote from: The Rules
4: The only time double-posting is allowed (posting two messages in a row in the same topic) is either if there has been 6 hours since your last post, 3 hours if your thread has been bumped out of the New Posts page, 1 hour if it's a project update or immediately if you need to upload more than 10 file attachments at once. Otherwise, update the last post using the "EDIT" button. It will be marked as unread for all members (altough it won't bump the thread).

What kind of a tutorial are you looking for for Celtic?
The readme provided with the program is fairly comprehensive and should explain the commands. If you have a question about a specific command, try asking for clarification or help with that command.

In that case, I believe the readme would cover it well. I don't believe there are tutorials made specifically for general Celtic III stuff like there are for xLib. Its usage is similar to xLib's, the major difference is the commands and what they do.

Here's a quick bit of code I whipped up:
Code: [Select]
det(32,"A"->Str1
1->Y
inString(Str1," ",Y)->Z
While Z
Disp sub(Str1,Y,Z-Y
Z+1->Y
inString(Str1," ",Y)->Z
End
Pause
It should list through all the programs in the retrieved search string and display each name on a separate line.

If you are interested, I wrote a shell in BASIC a while ago. It used two of Xeda's opcodes to list programs, and execute them with some major string manipulation. It could run archived programs and no shell asm programs. Let me know if you are interested.

You would use the commands in celtic to get the program names, and then use the menu function with the names converted into strings, and you have your menu.
Also, please do not double post, if you have something else to say, modify your latest post and add it in.
