@EdS Kind of makes me want to put BBC Basic on my -11. I bet it's nicer than DEC BASIC.

Unfortunately on has no trig functions - or indeed log, or even square root, as yet. So it's not quite ready for prime time. And
is not available. Although of course
works. Whereas, this v6 emulation does have bc available, so we can
bc -l
if we feel the need. And we do!
