Each one is half way right, you just have to combine the 2.

Code: [Select]
"vPBWMAP1"->Str0Getcalc(Str0,16)->PIf P For(A,0,15)  1->{P+A} EndEnd

Quigibo, with 0.4.0, can you do something like "Copy([0123456789ABCDEF],P,8" ?
That might be useful.

I'll put it online when it does something.

tyvm, I have 3.3 though, does the copy() method calcdude84se suggested work on that version as well?

The ability to use values directly rather than storing them to pointers first was added with version 0.4.0

Interesting new use of data i see!  That should prove to be very useful in the future

Of course, it's still more optimized to do "Str1->Str1 and use Str1 multiple times than using "Str1" multiple times, since each occurrence of "Str1" adds size to the program, while assiging it to a pointer just does it once.
I think the intended use was with text and other data that would only need to be used one time.

GetCalc("Str1",5)->A

Its very very useful *dances*

Keep in mind by version 0.4.0, Axe takes 32768 bytes instead of 16384, though, so be sure to save some of your stuff on the computer if you run out of space. The larger size should not be a problem considering it's an entire programming language compiling tool, though.

Also nice update to Copy and Getcalc

Yeah, it was language-wide, IIRC
You can even do
Code: [Select]
Disp "Hello World"+6theoretically. (I haven't checked yet, though) It should display "World"
