So as kind of a side update, I am working on writing/completing an actual tutorial for Grammer. I am also trying to add in a way to execute code as an interrupt (because this will allow for things like grayscale). So pretty much, I need to find a new token for this. I use Goto to jump to a section of code and prgm to execute code as a subroutine, so what do I use to execute the code as an interrupt?

For BASIC programmers, an interrupt in Grammer will mean that a section of code will get executed over 100 times per second along with the normal code flow.

did you already used int()?
If you didn't, it's probably the best
interrupt XD

Yeah, I already used that D: Which reminds me, a few posts back I posted a way to use arrays (involving int().

Here is the post link: http://ourl.ca/11664/251481

EDIT: You were looking for a way to do this, right?

I was thinking of using that to increase the size of a var. So for example, to add bytes to the end of a program file in case it has map data or sprite data or something like that.

Wow, that is a token?
Umm, is this on all OSes? (I notice it is a two-byte token)

It's in List -> Math. and yes. At least, it's in OS 2.43

Okay, cool. Um, I am looking through the Catalog and I see "Func" as a potential token (like executing a Function)

Thanks much Yeong! But now I have to see how I can use the variance( token, because that seems neat... XD

Code: [Select]

Don't do this

I love that part, yeong :D

Here is an update on the things that have been changed or added:

DispGraph can now have a pointer to tell it which buffer to display. For example, if you want to display appBackUpScreen as a buffer, you can do DispGraphπ9872. To display the normal graph screen, just do DispGraphπ9872 (remember that the pi symbol tells it to read the number as hex). If you omit the argument, it will just display the default buffer.

Disp will let you change the default buffer location. For example, if you want to use appBackUpScreen instead of the graph screen, just do Disp π9872.

Func will let you execute a subroutine as an interrupt. Interrupts activate a little over one hundred times per second, regardless of what is happening code wise. For example, this will automatically display the graph screen, even if you don't have any other DispGraphs in your code:
Code: [Select]
FuncLbl "INTERRUPT     ;the Lbl "INTERRUPT part will return the location of the routine
Repeat getKey=15
rand/1024→Y
rand/683→X
rand/1024→R
Circle(Y,X,R,3
End
Goto Lbl "Stop          ;Jumps to the end of the code
.INTERRUPT
DispGraph
End                   ;Ends the interrupt
.Stop
Stop
Note that this isn't optimised XD

And finally, the Send( command will let you make a program or appvar of any size you want (assuming there is enough memory). So to create the program named HI with 768 bytes (which can be used as a screen buffer):
Code: [Select]
Send(768,"EHI
Programs have a prefix of "E", protected programs have a prefix of "F" and appvars have a prefix of "U"
This also returns the location of the variable in case you are using it for a buffer *cough*

Hopefully the next update will include a readme that is up to date and has more examples/explanations. For now, here is a screenie and the latest version of Grammer. Feel free to ask questions (as well as how to do things)!

It can WRITE TO PROGRAMS!?!?!?!?

Oi, yes it can :) But now it can create them, too!

Also, here is a mini graphic I am proud of that I want to make my avatar >.>
