##### Changing bits

I'm probably missing something, but is there a way to get/set the value of a single bit in axe?
It is bad luck to be superstitious.

Documentation has this for reading bits:
Code: [Select]
EXPeBIT# where e is euler's e. Returns BIT# of EXP, where the high bit is bit0 and the low bit is bit 7. Example, 255e0 would return 1.

Writing to bits, you basically have to "or" the bit over; so
Code: [Select]
e^(bit#) or EXP -> EXP As for resetting bits, I forget...

or will set a bit
and will reset a bit
xor will toggle a bit
Code: [Select]
e^(#) [or/and/xor] EXP->EXPwhere # is the bit to set 0-7 starting from the right hand side.

Actually, for and you need to use not(e^(#)) and EXP->EXP

Perhaps I'm behind in my Axe, but I wasn't aware that the Not( function was implemented in Axe.
∂²Ψ    -(2m(V(x)-E)Ψ
---  = -------------
∂x²        ℏ²Ψ

It was added in Axe 0.4.7: "Bitwise complement command for 8 and 16 bit numbers"
