NXT Shell

The NXT Shell is a program that is run on the NXT brick in the background during direct mode execution. Since some remote mode commands do not have a direct mode analog, the shell will execute these commands. The shell has 2 main purposes: 1) the sensor view screen and 2) execution of shell commands.

This is an important requirement for running programs from a computer for debugging/etc.
