After storing some values in Pointer, is there a way to "DelVar" it?
Every time I run the program, the Pointer still have all the values.
That is both a strength and weakness of shell programs. A strength because you don't have to create an appvar for save games, a weakness because you can't keep the original data for the next run if you modified it.
So there is no way to clear it?
trying to overwrite with Data(0,0,0,0,0,.... didn't work

If you have data like so:

Data(0,0,0)->GDB1

and you modify this data durring the program, but you ALWAYS want it to start out as zero, you can zero the entire thing like so:

0->{GDB1}
Fill(GDB1,Length)

That's because Data() is basically Buff(), but you get control over the contents.
In other news, Frey continues kicking unprecedented levels of ass.

ah, thank you!
@Frey: that was probably what caused the ported game to not work after 1st time playing :D

Buff() is basically a shortcut for Data()/[].

Okay, I'm sure that this is just stupidity on my part, but I just can't see a bug in this.

Axe 1.0.5

Code: [Select]
.ZA

Text(0,0,F(5,6)>Dec)
Text(50,0,F(6,5)>Dec)

Text(0,10,F((6-1),(6+1))>Dec)
Text(50,10,F(6,6)-1>Dec)

Text(0,20,F(6,(5+4))>Dec)

Text(50,20,F(6,5)+F(6,4)>Dec)


Pause 5000

Lbl F
r1*r2+r1+r2
Return

Compiling halts at 57% during the first pass -- error message: "WRONG # OF ARGS".

Pressing [pgrm] jumps to the sixth 'Text'
Code: [Select]
Text(50,20,F(6,5)+F(6,4)>Dec)
                     ^

(In case anybody was wondering, I was brute-forcing a solution to an SAT problem (in my defense, I was feeling too tired to be clever)).
My website: Currently boring.

Projects:
Axe Interpreter
   > Core: Done
   > Memory: Need write code to add constants.
   > Graphics: Rewritten.  Needs to integrate sprites with constants.
   > IO: GetKey done.  Need to add mostly homescreen IO stuff.
Croquette:
   > Stomping bugs
   > Internet version: On hold until I can make my website less boring/broken.

Pick that post back up and take it right on over to the bug reports thread, because that's definitely Axe's fault, not yours. It's treating +F as adding the variable F instead of noticing the opening parenthesis immediately following it and treating it as adding the return value of a function.

Question:what is the limit of constant's letter? I know that it must be more than 1 letter... Also, can I store decimal in constant?

discard the question before:
Why doesn't this code work?
Code: [Select]
:.MPREV
:GetCalc("varF")->A
:GetCalc("varP")->B
:float{A}->F
:float{B}->P
:F->oAA      //o is a degree sign
:P->oBB
:freq(oAA,oBB
:Return
It compiles, but it won't produce sound.
(In my case, OS varF was 314 and OS varP was 32796)

That shouldn't compile so I guess its a bug then.  You can't assign a variable to a constant because, by definition, constants cannot change value throughout the life of the program.

Oops.Wrong code XP
It should've been
Code: [Select]
:.MPREV
:GetCalc("varF")->A
:GetCalc("varP")->B
:float{A}->F
:float{B}->P
:freq(F,P
:Return

I'm curious as to what else you plan to implement, Quigibo. Just how much more can you possibly add to Axe :P ?
Developing Lua scripts for the NSpire ?
Check out the Necrotorium
Need a few routines to run faster ? Checkout the MODS Lua Assembly Toolkit.
Need to save space for your scripts ? Checkout LuaSrcDiet

Objects, data typing, webserver scripting, BrainF*ck-style syntax, butterfly support.
