i've gotten them to work.  by big problem was the difference between
cr-lf and lf.  in the ee editor, the one i have working has ^M after
each line.  to debug it i put 'pause' statements at the start and after
each line.  what i discovered when it wasn't working is that the lines
were not ending normally and the command interpreter was seeing long
lines without terminations that it recognized.

hopes this helps.
