Up for the vote are the following programs (in the order listed on

CopyProg ( (ticalc link (

CopyProg2 has a few other features as well (like line reading and reading the names of the variables on your calc). It allows you to do things like copy an archived appvar to a temp program for execution ;)

Embers ( (ticalc link (
