Nice!  This and Host.Run posted by Necati really impove practical
functionality.  Is there any connection between the Aos clipboard
and the MM interclick in Oberon?  To copy between the Oberon
subsystem and Aos I resort to a temporary file.  Exactly one of the
clumsy techniques which Oberon was to avoid.

Rev. 5406 still complains that fonts Oberon12b.Md6.Fnt and
Oberon12.Md6.Fnt are absent.  What is an Md6.Fnt?  Google hasn't
helped.

'x.Md6.Fnt' are the old Oberon 600bpi printer fonts now named 'x.Pr6.Fnt'.
These are not needed by the Unix port which uses the Postscript language
for printing. You can avoid the missing font warning by download the
'x.Pr6.fnt's and 'x.Pr3.Fnt's from the AOS repository. The warning arises
in Oberon.Fonts.Mod. You can also set the constant 'TraceMissing' to
FALSE in that module.

Thanks Guenter.  I'll do that and keep TraceMissing,        ... Peter E.
