Implementing the commands of Stringscope
I'm having a lot of fun working on the commands of Stringscope, the string listing tool I'm developing with Medley Interlisp.
I implemented the
Sort menu item with its subitems
Descending, as well as the

The next commands to implement are the ones that take input from and output to the prompt area:
