GENERAL INFORMATION
===================

Command Prompt is an external interface for use with the MirageOS shell. It is a command line entry user interface, which has all the functionality of the Built-In Interface. To load the Command Prompt, send "mircmdp.8xp" to your TI-83 Plus (preferably in archive memory). Then goto the MirageOS options, choose Set System Interface, and check the Run External GUI box. Finally, go choose Select Interface File, and press left/right until Command Prompt is displayed. Press Alpha to exit the Options, and the Command Prompt will start.


When Command Prompt first starts you will see something like this:
     Welcome To MirageOS
     <MAIN>|
The top line is an introductory message, and <MAIN> tells you that the current folder is MAIN. When you switch folders in the Command Prompt the new folder name will become displayed within these bracket-type characters.


From here you can execute all the Command Prompt commands. Each command has a one letter keycode which may or may not be followed with more input. Here are the keycodes and their functions:
