Who all are working on axioms?
Seems like a good place to ask :)

Edit: also,  Can axe programs have already assembled programs be included in them?

You can call them, but you can't import them, unfortunately.

How do you get the appv token?  It is not in the vars or catalog.

Thanks.  :)
Someone should make a list of Axe specific tokens and the key strokes to get them.  It would make learning Axe easier for n00bs like me.

They should all be in the commands list page, except maybe for those three (var, appv, and grp).

the axe command list thread does. under many commands, the shortcut to reach them is listed.

Where in RAM is the calculator's internal clock stored?  (something like getTime or startTmr)

I remember finding a port in calcsys...I'd need to find it again

Is it any faster to read from a list than an appvar?
I think it should be the same speed b/c they're both just pointers, but just to be sure ;)

Oh, I should have checked.  When I can't find a token, I start to panic and run around in circles.  :P

Darl, if by list you mean a free RAM location (ie L1, L2, etc) then yes it is slightly faster and smaller to do that over a variable-location appvar. The difference isn't huge though, only a few cycles.

I've tried many times to create a level editor, but it wont work... Is there a way to do it?
(there is, as i've seen many around here)
I'm not a nerd but I pretend:

Darl, if by list you mean a free RAM location (ie L1, L2, etc) then yes it is slightly faster and smaller to do that over a variable-location appvar. The difference isn't huge though, only a few cycles.

L1 is a fixed pointer (it's pretty much just a number), while GetCalc("appvNAME") involves an OS routine to find that location.

But if you're talking about actual lists, as in OS lists, it's just data, so it'd be the same as reading from an appvar. The difference is that an OS list is stored as an array of floating-point numbers, so if you want to read the actual numbers, it would be a lot slower than reading single bytes.

I mean, after it has a pointer.  Would {L1+A} be any faster than {P+A} ?
What I'm trying to do is see if I can get levels out of the limiting size of L1 and have them read directly from an appvar and/or the archive.
