        It does rather look like AmigaDOS syntax. I wonder if it has
any raltionship to Tripos?

        BTW, I found an interesting thing buried in the development
sample programs on the NeXTstep 3.3 Developer's CD, and it actually
reminds me of the Amiga's famous Boing ball logo. It's a little app.
called 'Backspace' and it includes the now-standard moving starfield
as well as a bouncing red/white checkered ball (sound familiar? <G>).
Both of them can be run in a window or set as the background, or even
used as a screensaver. What makes them interesting as the
desktop/workbench/workspace background is that even as the background
they are still animated! It makes for an interesting display having
the backdrop behind the windows and menus animated. I had never
noticed this little program before. It's shown as having been
written by Samuel Streeper, (c) 1991, 1992, NeXT Computer Inc.
