Planning to do a scalide screencast sometime

I am hoping to learn how to record a brief 5 minute screen cast in the next few weeks to walk through some of the features of the interpreter. I know that the user interface leaves a lot to be desired and I haven't had much time to work on it, however hopefully I can explain it better for people new to Scala as it can be a good way to help learn the language. (I use it as a calculator now). To people who have used mathematica before the interface might be only extremely horrible, for everyone else it's probably entirely unusable ;-)

I am also going to look over the recent changes that have been checked into the scala tools package by extempore to see if I can add some auto-complete support which would make the interpreter much more usuable, stay tuned :-)
