      I went to look for it - afaict the original creator has made it
      open-source. He appears to have developed something new while someone
      else has taken over the reins of the original 4DOS. Did you get it from
      http://4dos.zzl.org/ ?

      At least for me, the install procedure seemed very confusing ....

      Anyhow, I finally decided to try PowerShell (free from MSOFT) (works
      with WinXP and Vista notwithstanding " windowserver" in the link:

      From links on its site and a little bit of googling I found two
      different but (I think) related IDEs (Integrated Development Environments):

      * PowerShellAnalyzer - http://powershell.com/announce/default.aspx#
      * PowerGUI - http://powergui.org/downloads.jspa

      PowerShell has bit of a learning curve but both IDEs offer really nice
      debugging line by line executions, while you're learning.
      PowerShellAnalyzer has a really neat feature: select some lines and
      execute them with Ctrl+F7
      Power GUI has (IMO) better integrated Help.

      They are both like Sheri's ClipCode Syntax on steroids :-)

      To bring it back to Notetab (and justify not throwing this directly to
      NTO) I think (though not yet tested) the same ^$GetDosOutput()$ clipbar
      we were discussing elsewhere in this thread should work with PowerPro.

      Sheri - you're into this kind of thing - have you (or anyone else here)
      used PowerShell?
