Hi Peter,

Thanks for all the examples, helps a lot!

The complier helps a bit, here’s to hoping that some sort of “remote” debugger for it is coming. While i’m getting better at guessing where my errors are, it takes forever to narrow it down and then build out again. Definitely way slower than coding in LCS.

But I sense once we have access to the underlying OS foundations, it’s going to be the place to be to get what I need:)

Thanks again,
