To add a one-byte number to and register pair, you need to use a. (add c,NUM is not a valid instruction)
Here's an adaptation from a routine to add a to hl:
Code: [Select]
ld a,num_to_add
add c
ld c,a
adc a,b
sub c
ld b,a
This takes care of carry and everything.
Also, what register you use should be determined by the circumstances (like what routines you will be calling, for example, or what instructions are valid).

Thanks, that works!

Sort of a necropost but I have a question. In Mimas 0.3, the library files don't do anything. For example, when I import IonEqu and type "CALL iPutSprite" the compiler thinks I have a label called iPutSprite. Also, it doesn't add anything to the menus.

It's defined as "ionPutSprite", not "iPutSprite".

If you do have a program that isn't being assembled correctly, please send me a copy if you can (post it here, or PM or email it to me, or whatever.  I won't distribute it to anyone else if you don't want me to.)  If you can find a small test case that exhibits the bug, that's always appreciated, but don't let that stop you from posting a large test case if you're not sure how to simplify it.

You're right that there ought to be a menu of symbols that are provided by libraries, but that proved to be rather difficult; I'm planning to implement it eventually, but I haven't done so yet.

That was late xD, it's awesome, super easy to use and awesome compiler.

You said 'awesome' twice, and I agree ;D

Finally I can program ASM offline.

Just make sure, like with Axe, to backup often, though. X.x
In case you are wondering where I went, I left Omni back in 2015 to form CodeWalrus due to various reasons explained back then, but I stopped calc dev in 2016 and am now mostly active on the CW Discord server at https://discord.gg/cuZcfcF

Finally I can program ASM offline.

There are other compilers... For a longer time too, but this one outruns them all!

Also, why do you need to be online to program Assembly? Don't you mean in a computer?

Bug report:

Mimas sets bufferOnly (in plotFlag3) but doesn't reset it when quitting.

Yeah, I meant on a computer.

I used to use Tasm_on_Calc, then OTBP. Both were a bit slow for me.

I'm glad you guys like it. :)

Bug report:

Are you sure about that?  It shouldn't - it never uses that mode.  I've just noticed, however, that it leaves the plotLoc flag set.  Maybe that's what you're seeing?

(I guess I just assumed that plotLoc would be reset by the OS.  Turns out that isn't the case.  bufferOnly, however, is reset automatically, so even if Mimas did leave that flag set, it wouldn't cause any problems.)

I'll fix it as soon as possible, but just out of curiosity, what sort of problems does this cause?

What I always thought was ironic about TASM_ON_CALC was that the majority of the assembler was programmed in BASIC. It also took forever just to compile a simple program.

List of stuff I need to do before September:
1. Finish the Emulator of the Casio Prizm (in active development)
2. Finish the the SH3 asm IDE/assembler/linker program (in active development)
3. Create a partial Java virtual machine  for the Prizm (not started)
4. Create Axe for the Prizm with an Axe legacy mode (in planning phase)
5. Develop a large set of C and asm libraries for the Prizm (some progress)
6. Create an emulator of the 83+ for the Prizm (not started)
7. Create a well polished game that showcases the ability of the Casio Prizm (not started)

I noticed plotLoc too. I just thought it also did something to bufferOnly because I noticed an Axe program that uses Bitmap( didn't work properly after. Fix 8 (in Axe), which resets bufferOnly, seemed to fix it. It might have been plotLoc after all, though (I'm not really sure how the Bitmap( thing works).
