ObTutor: Great things are afoot on the GBASIC front -- stay tuned for a
very complete analysis, and the first steps towards a working GBASIC
model in Tutti. I'm still fleshing out the syntax tree (there's a lot of
weirdness in GBASIC's expression handling), but at least one
undocumented keyword has emerged, as well as some clues to its
internal memory representations. I'll be posting when it's done very
soon (next week perhaps).
