### A Flip Interpreter in C

I have uploaded a C program and a compiled executable for an interpreter for the Flip computer language (earlier discussed here) for DOS to my Netcom website. (Not much there yet.)

You must make sure there is a line

device=%systemroot%\system32\ansi.sys

(or equivalent) in the file config.nt or config.sys. That won't enable the Java version to work but it's compatible with this program.

The program takes one or two command-line parameters: The first is the name of the flip file and the second (which can be omitted) is the delay in seconds between each step. The second parameter is a real number, so it can be 0.1 or 0.01.

Yes, the 'r' and 'R' commands work.
