This program lets you run other programs in the background, its not done yet. (I was gonna use parallels but it didn't work.)

Currently, all it does is run every file in .taskprograms so if you want it to run in the background, you will have to modify the code of your program a bit.

If you run it, the first thing you will notice is it will say "Background programs: ".
To add another program, type /mult.

While editing your program, you can use our basic functions:
inputReader()
Adds the "> " that the shell uses.
isTasked("startup")
Returns true if your program is running in the background, otherwise false

And ancient. This obviously went nowhere. There are better solutions available on the forums. Locked.
