popsh, for scripting with Poplog and Pop-11

popsh is an attempt to facilitate the use of pop-11, and other poplog supported languages as scripting languages like perl, tcl, python and bash. Presently it is a saved image which understands the Unix convention for executing interpretors, the #!syntax. It's quite simple and does not do much to help actual scripting along, that's because I have never scripted in pop-11 so I don't know what I need yet. Hopefully, we can figure out what we need and build it.


The current version is 0.1, and it is available here.

It is distributed under the GPL.


There is no documentation presently, but the README file that comes with the distribution is somewhat useful.
