It works well with nano as the editor. When you exit nano, the mmbasic command prompt is there but the nano screen is still showing so the mmbasic prompt is not very obvious.
That is something that I have got used to with the limited Linux work I do but it is worth mentioning.

If you prefer to write your code on a Windows PC you can easily transfer it to the Pi with
copy the code to the clipboard
In TeraTerm:
paste the code into TeraTerm (right click)
Other useful commands are ^Z or QUIT to exit mmbasic and return to the Pi command prompt.

Get serial ports working and I won't have to get my hands dirty learning Python.

It all started with the ZX81....
