Now that you mention it, I vaguely remember something like that
mentioned. I think it was only for Windows, but I'll hunt it down and
see if we can use that as a starting block. Thanks for mentioning it.

To to hear that you are also interested in a new debugger, means I
have not totally lost the plot.  :-)  I was no desperate at one point
with debugging, I tried the text mode ide as well, but I couldn't even
get debugging support compiled in. :-(  Plus having a debugger written
in pascal will simply be the cherry on the cake.
