What Is Ore?

What is Ore?
Ore is an operating system that I'm designing. I currently have no plans to have a fully featured operating system that runs solely on a computer, but I will be releasing two runtime environments: One for the PC and another for the PSP. It will be able to execute commands similar to the bash shell or Windows DOS, and even execute .Ore files.
The language is a mixture of Lua, bash and batch scripting, but not as powerful. It is even very similar to BASIC like you would find in the ol' TI-83.


What can it be used to do?
Well, the programming is quite simple but somewhat powerful. You'll be able to play some cool text-based RPG's like Zork. :D The possibilities are endless. Seriously, this thing has recursion. XD


How can I help?
Just suggest some stuff in this section! That's what it's here for! I'd like to hear some more stuff about this!


Any IDE's available?
Um, yeah. It's called Notepad. XD Just kidding! You won't need any IDE but I have created a theme for Notepad++ that you guys can use so that it will color the terms for easier development. :P I'll be releasing that soon, too. ;)


When will the Ore operating system come out?
Not sure if there will be a standalone operating system or not. If I gain enough attention and get the RE's stable enough, I may work with someone that's good the steps in the boot process of a modern computer to get one working, but I don't know why you'd want one. :-L


When will the Runetime Environment makes their debut?
There will be one released for the PSP and PC soon. Macs, you may or may not be getting one. (I hate XCode.) I want to release the PSP version first and since I finally got the SDK installed, I'll be able to push it out the door later on.


Can I see some more source code?
Sure! :D
Here's a sample executable:
  Code:
# This is an example Ore program! ;)
# December 18th, 2010
exe:3.1.y.Example
echo:Hello, world!
# More code here if you'd like to try it out!
exe:end
