scrsh is a rewrite of my fabled 'screen shell' command - the tool which led
me to write the almighty 'ShellScr'.

First a little history. Around October 1992, I discovered I'd be getting an
Amiga  for  Xmas.  So  I  started  getting the Amiga Format magazine, which
happened to give away Devpac 2 (the Hisoft editor, assembler and debugger).
Some  time  later, I started getting the Amiga Shopper magazine, which went
on  in the coding bits about the 'RKRMs'. So I got these out of the library
and  tried  all  this  'cool new stuff' from the Libraries RKM about public
screens.  Given  that  I  wanted  a  shell on a seperate screen from Devpac
(which is WB screen only). So scrsh was born some time around mid 1994.

However,  scrsh  never  tested  if anything went wrong, and it was fixed to
640x256  PAL Hires with the CON: window. Many years later, with an A1200, I
started  to  realise  that  this  needed  updating,  so  I started to write
'ShellScr'  in  Amiga  E instead of assembler. Nowadays, ShellScr is a very
powerful,  flexible  and  easy  to use public screen shell opener. It works
with any screen mode, any font, any shell, and almost any language. You can
get ShellScr from Aminet as util/shell/ShellScr.lha

However,  all  those options and features have made ShellScr fat. It's just
under  10Kb,  which  for  something that opens a shell is quite a bit. So -
presenting  a  new version of scrsh. Just imagine ShellScr with no options.
It opens a shell on a public screen and becomes the default screen. It uses
your  current  default  screen to base its choices on. It's 540 bytes. What
more could you want?

Usage: Run <>NIL: scrsh

When you close the shell and all other windows on the screen, it goes away.
If this fails, use the Break command on scrsh.

Requires 2.0 or better.
