You can solve the CLI part by f.ex. using CLITool on Aminet. Create a project icon for the demo, set CLITool as the default tool, and increase the stack space to 100Kb. This way you can click the demos to run them as if from CLI.
Sorry for being thick but I thought you couldn't create a project icon for an executable only a tool icon? Can you clarify please would the CLITool approach work for executable demo files that I want to iconise?

Thanks again for your help.
