I just worked out a new version attached to this posting. It contains several improvements, based on your suggestions.

I want to implement 2 features till its ready to use:

1. fileusage instead of parameter (or both, like your version)
2. handling of invalid cell-size like the original bf-interpreter did

I hope you all like this version ;)

I've seen:
- People don't search-replace and removing a particular statement (it will then run the second line)
- People using them with macros (that haven't been properly scoped)
- People adding a statement that is really 2.
- People with a load of nested ifs, remove one and then the else statement relates to something else.
- Particularly in nested situations, people get the scope confused when writing the code and end up putting a statement in the wrong scope.

Its not that common, however these bugs can be a significant time sink when they occur.  I think its more time consuming to avoid putting them in.

Also, for me as a style thing its less typing to have brackets because they are auto generated as I type.  I can then easily expand the statement without having to go back and add {}.

I should add, that I'm not a style Nazi.  I was just trying to demonstrate the other side of the fence on this one.

Don't worry about the line-buffering. That's very common behavior, and shouldn't break any interesting programs. People will NOT be surprised or disturbed if ,[.,] reads and outputs one line at a time.

Thats true, for sure.
My play instinct is forcing me to do it so, that it works at least on my own system.
