## RE: [Axiom-developer] Boot

Gaby,

If you plan to go ahead with the proposed documentation of
"new boot" (aka. SHOE) I would be delighted to help. Perhaps
you have said before, but could you please explain how to
call SHOE from the command line?

What I would like to do is to provide a environment in the
Axiom Wiki, e.g.

\begin{shoe}
....
\end{shoe}

where we can compile examples of SHOE code. There is already
such an environment for boot

\begin{boot}
....
\end{boot}

See

http://wiki.axiom-developer.org/BootProgramming

I am very interested in your comment about the relationship
between SHOE and Haskell.

Regards,
Bill Page.
