Very cool looking!
A pseudo-random question (out of curiosity only): Is it possible to modify the code so that when you call the subroutine(s), you can define how long you want your data to be?
My website: Currently boring.

   > 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.

That would definitely be possible for the addition and subtraction routines, but I don't know how that would work with the decimal display routine. It works by having all the multiples of 10 that can fit in the data size you're using hardcoded into the routine. I could hardcode the multiples of 10 up to a very high amount and just hope the user doesn't exceed it, although that would probably be a bit wasteful, as I doubt most people would require most of the excess data.

But it's possible. Want me to try it?


Note: That question was pretty much rhetorical, because now I want to try this anyway. ;)

A rhetorical response to a rhetorial question... I would like to announce 'FTW', but I can't come up with a way to word it...
Hmm...

It would be even cooler if you could mix and match the sizes, especially for addition and subtraction, allowing me to do things like add a 3 byte number to a 5 byte number...  And for completeness, something that could take an X byte number and truncate/pad it to a Y byte size number...

I'm not really sure how decimals would work with all that, though.

Woo, necro. I thought I'd share my own custom input routine, coming in at ~360 bytes.(For some reason I've never liked input...). Anyway, it's very flexible and allows the use of ALPHA to toggle between caps, lowercase, and number input. Writes ASCII to the desired location in memory. Press Enter to "finish"
Code: [Select]
.A0

0->A->K->P->{pointer}^^r

Fill(pointer,max amount of characters+1)
DeltaList(47,39,31,46,38,30,22,14,45,37,29,21,13,44,36,28,20,12,43,35,27,19,11,42,34,26,18,0)->GDB0A
GDB0A->G
64->L
DeltaList(33,34,26,18,35,27,19,36,28,20,0)->GDB0N
[]->Str00
"ABC"[00]
"abc"[00]
"123"[00]

While K-9
getKey->K
!If -48
A+1->A
!If -3
->A
End
!If A
GDB0A->G
64->L
End
!If -1
GDB0A->G
96->L
End
!If -1
GDB0N->G
47->L
End
End

Text(0,58,A*4+Str00
If K
If inString(,G)
+L->{P+pointer}
If P-(max amount of characters-1)
P+1->P
0->{P+pointer+1}
End
End
End
Text(x position,y position,pointer

End
edit: here's a basic screenie

It shows whether the current input mode is in caps (ABC), lowercase (abc), or numerical (123) :)

Oh ok, you should probably add text saying Mode: or something, so it is a bit more clear. :P

While messing around with my memory mapper I came across a way to basically use file objects in archive as pointers. This means that you can draw sprites from archive :o Unfortunately, it only works with nostub executables :(
Code: [Select]
Asm(DB0665)^256->theta //run this line at the beginning of the program and make sure that you don't touch theta ever)
...stuff
GetCalc("prgmBLA",Y1)
{degreeY1+2}Asm(7DD306)
.Now whenever you want to reference Y1...
Pt-On(X,Y,{degreeY1}r
.If you have more than one file object make sure that the last 7DD306 matches the one you are using.
...at the end of the program
thetaAsm(7DD306)

I think you might run into problems if the sprite data spans two pages.

Should this be stickied now that there's more room?

You should probably sticky all the important threads I guess, now that it won't clutter the progress threads list anymore. Someone already did with this one, though.
