Is there interest in a NOS 2.x version? It shouldn't be too hard to make.

The MP130 is a NOS 2.0 device, BTW.

The Web page now has an animated GIF showing it being used.

I'm glad you like it. :)

Yes, it's quite a simple NewtonScript project. "Simple" as in "not much  
code was needed to make this".

I don't think the Newton C++ compiler even supports NOS 1.x (someone  
correct me if I'm wrong) - not that I'd want to use C++ when I can use  
NewtonScript!

As Morgan said, http://newtonscript.org/ is an excellent resource.

I learned a lot about Newton programming by looking at example code and  
just experimenting (but make a backup first!). If you're a Windows user,  
see:

Maybe we should add links to Apple's example code to NewtonScript.org?  
Specifically:

http://www.unna.org/view.php?/apple/development/Examples/SampleCodeMac  
(for the Mac NTK, NOS 2.x only, I think)
http://www.unna.org/view.php?/apple/development/Examples/SampleCodeWin  
(for the Windows NTK, NOS 2.x only and with short filenames, I think)
http://www.unna.org/unna/apple/development/NTK/winntk/1.6b10/SAMP95NT-recompressed.zip  
(for the Windows NTK, NOS 1.x/2.x and with long filenames)
