Find the error in a beginner's program
« on: April 25, 2012, 07:59:41 am »
Hello, first I have a question: who programs with Grammer here ? Just Xeda ?


Then I would these programers to tell we where are my error(s) in this program:

It's a base converter from decimal. (it is supposed to be  ;D )

The display always starts with a value that I didn't ask for, and then the right value.

Code: [Select]
:.0:Return→B
:ClrDraw
:Line(1,5,9,95,6
:Line(0,6,9,95,6
:Text(8,5,"Base Converter
:/Text(18,0,"Base ?
:DispGraph
:expr(Input →G
:/Text(18,0,"Valeur Décimale ?
:DispGraph
:expr(Input →AC'
:/Text(30,0,"= "
:Text('°AC',G
:DispGraph
:Repeat getkey
:End
:If =15
:Goto B
:ClrDraw:DispGraph
:Stop

And then, I have some questions about the Input command:

- is there a mean to forbid other tokens than alphanumeric ? (like pressing a key [stat],[On] etc...)
- When should the "two-points" appear on the screen ? Before or after pressing the first key ?  (ow my syntax...  <_< )
- The text in the Input is displayed like with /Text(  , letter-by-letter. Is that normal ?

Damn, grammer changed quite a lot since I last programmed with it O.o
And if these should be commented lines, they need a double-slash (//)

I believe Yeong also programs in grammer. I don't, so I can't really help you :(


Spoiler For funny life mathematics:
1. ROMANCE MATHEMATICS
Smart man + smart woman = romance
Smart man + dumb woman = affair
Dumb man + smart woman = marriage
Dumb man + dumb woman = pregnancy
2. OFFICE ARITHMETIC
Smart boss + smart employee = profit
Smart boss + dumb employee = production
Dumb boss + smart employee = promotion
Dumb boss + dumb employee = overtime
3. SHOPPING MATH
A man will pay $2 for a $1 item he needs.
A woman will pay $1 for a $2 item that she doesn't need.
4. GENERAL EQUATIONS & STATISTICS
A woman worries about the future until she gets a husband.
A man never worries about the future until he gets a wife.
A successful man is one who makes more money than his wife can spend.
A successful woman is one who can find such a man.
5. HAPPINESS
To be happy with a man, you must understand him a lot and love him a little.
To be happy with a woman, you must love her a lot and not try to understand her at all.
6. LONGEVITY
Married men live longer than single men do, but married men are a lot more willing to die.
7. PROPENSITY TO CHANGE
A woman marries a man expecting he will change, but he doesn't.
A man marries a woman expecting that she won't change, and she does.
8. DISCUSSION TECHNIQUE
A woman has the last word in any argument.
Anything a man says after that is the beginning of a new argument.

Girls = Time * Money (Girls are a combination of time and money)
Time = Money (Time is money)
Girls = Money squared (So, girls are money squared)
Money = sqrt(Evil) (Money is also the root of all evil)
Girls = sqrt(Evil) squared (So, girls are the root of all evil squared)
Girls = Evil (Thus, girls are evil)
*Girls=Evil credit goes to Compynerd255*

I believe he is also writing a tutorial (but in English), if you need help
(I am talking to persalteas, even if I quoted everyone but him :P)
I own: 83+ ; 84+SE ; 76.fr ; CX CAS ; Prizm ; 84+CSE
Sorry if I answer with something that seems unrelated, English is not my primary language and I might not have understood well. Sorry if I make English mistakes too.

I just saw this topic.
I'll have to leave soon, but I'll get you the answer by tomorrow ;)
EDIT: Actually, your code is not wrong, but it's input itself. It somehow stores "14" in A when I tried with number 255.

Do you know how to solve the problem ?

storing 0 in A before the Input ?

Okay, I believe the problem is just that you have :expr(Input →AC' Input will not normally handle numbers >65535 x.x. I also changed a few things:
Code: [Select]
:.0:             ;This line gets ignored because it starts with "."
:Return→B
:ClrDraw
:Line(1,5,9,95,6
:Line(0,6,9,95,6
:Text(8,5,"Base Converter
:/Text(18,0,"Base ?
:DispGraph
:expr(Input →G
:/Text(18,0,"Valeur Décimale ?
:DispGraph
:expr(Input →A  ;
:/Text(30,0,"= "
:Text('°A,G
:DispGraph
:Repeat         ;Added a space here. Just a single space means it uses the last value
:getkey         ;"Repeat getKey" does not change ans
:End
:If =15
:Goto B
:ClrDraw:DispGraph
:Stop

By the way, it looks nice o.o

OK, Thanks :)

but
Code: [Select]
:Repeat         ;Added a space here. Just a single space means it uses the last value
:getkey         ;"Repeat getKey" does not change ans
:End

Is one byte heavier...

Yeah :/ But otherwise, your next line would not work:
Code: [Select]
If =15
Goto B

If Grammer works the way that xeda had not intended it to do, just understand: Grammer has its own AI.

Just try it, you will see... The getkey is stored in Ans, even with my code... It works.

If you press enter, the program restarts, if you press another key, it exits.

I think xeda think it didn't works because the slight hold of the key makes it look like it doesn't work.
