Re: Once again a plea for slash

some terminals don't have a back-slash.  Does the multics typeball
have it?
  (Of course I prefer back-slash for quoting a character as we have
done in Franz.)  What "/" should do is another matter.  Adding exact
rational numbers as a data type is not necessarily a good idea.  unbounded
precision is expensive if there is a long sequence of operations.
