Yes, indeed, unbelievable, thank you, Angel!
Angel, are you in search for new challenges for the next year? What about a BASIC interpreter for the 41CL  speed and memory size should be sufficient! Just the display width is poor, I know ... :) My wish ( dream :) ) is a result from the following observation: FOCAL language is totally overchallenged with matrix expressions that are very common in numerical mathematics: terms like K(i,j) = M(i,k) * N(k,l) + P(l,j) f.e. are easily implemeted in BASIC, easy to read and edit and quite fast. Try this with the CCD Module matrix functions  possible, of course, but somewhat ridiculous. So even if the implementation of a complete BASIC environment might not be an option, a BASIC subset for definition of matrix and vektor calculations would be very helpful, and feasible perhaps. Such a definition could be done in form of an alpha string which is interpreted by the function that follows immediately ( in a FOCAL program). I know that there are special functions for row and columnsums, determinants, crossproducts ... but that doesn't really help much. Realworld numerical algorithms ( like differential equation solvers, simplex method etc. ) always need individual combinations of matrix elements that cannot be reduced to standard functions like the above mentioned ones!
