Thanks, that is exactly what I was looking for :D

Also, I guess the answer is yes but is this faster than the OS routine ?

edit
Bug Report (or maybe I just don't know how to use it -.-)
See, my code is

8→Col
7→Row
Str(255►Int)

But there is no 255 on (8,7). There is some garbage (behind the big "3")

edit
Nevermind, it displays right but the grey background doesn't let figures appear correctly

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.

Are Output(EXP) and Output(X,Y) commands unoptimized ?

Char(CHAR), what is the difference with >Char ?

Explain why you made this axiom, I don't see why it is better, and if that's more optimized, why you don't ask to quigibo to optimize his routines ?

They are OS routines, so they don't take any space but are very slow :(

This one can write on any buffer ;)

Because Quigibo can't optimise the OS :P

It does at more size to the program, but it also adds functionality which Axe does not provide, which is really the point of Axioms in the first place.
