##### 2 Axe Questions
« on: August 12, 2015, 05:23:05 pm »
Okay, so I'm trying to make a program in Axe, (obviously) and I have two questions.

1) Is there a way to use and create matrices using axe? Because I'm still a little fuzzy on the GDB sort of thing. (It would be helpful if someone could also explain that.

2) You know how in the Axe app, it shows all of your programs that you made? Could someone explain how that works because I need it for something and I would like to be able to use it for myself.

Thank you for your time,
SiphonicSugar

1st: GDB is a pointer, pointers are just numbers that point somewhere in ram, from there on you have to think of your own data format to store a matrix.

So, for a matrix, you could basically do something like like:
Code: [Select]
:Data(5,5,5,5)→GDB0:Data(4,5,5,4):Data(4,5,5,4):Data(3,3,3,3)(Data( is really the ∆List( token)
That would save it row-by-row. Then then fetch it you can do:
Code: [Select]
{Y*4+X+GDB0}

2nd: axe looks through the VAT, that is the table of the OS where all the variables/programs/appvars are listet, for programs that start with :. and displays those.

I don't think that is possible with axe alone, I think you'd need some asm for that, to cycle through all the programs. What you can do with axe, though, is, if you already know the name of a program, look into it's content. That is what GetCalc is for.

Okay, thank you for your help. I'll have to search up GetCalc.

Oh wait, actually one more thing. How do you use the text( command and have the things that you made with the line( command show up at the same time? Because it will show the lines that it drew, but the text is really hard to read.

I think there's one of the flags (Fix n) commands which switches the function of Text(

Well guess what? I can't find anything to explain how to access numbers and stuff in GDBs or how to create custom ones. Could anyone explain that? I know how to store things in the GDB, but how do I access a certain number in it.

Sorry for double-posting.

the GDB0 is then a pointer, and as the doc states:
Quote
{EXP}: Returns the single byte the expression points to. It will be in the range 0 to 255.
That means for you that {GDB0} will return the first number you "stored" in it, and {GDB0 + 1} the second number etc.

Okay, but how would I display that, like the value of a certain spot in the GDB?

You can do that with the >Dec - token, so that you have like
Code: [Select]
Text(10,10,{GDB0 + 5}>Dec)

2) You know how in the Axe app, it shows all of your programs that you made? Could someone explain how that works because I need it for something and I would like to be able to use it for myself.

I'm not 100% sure this is right cause I never used it myself, but I think you want something like the MEMKIT axiom. I also found a topic a while ago on omnimaga that lets you sort programs some other way, but I forgot the link. I think think that MEMKIT is what you need. The file should have come with axe version 1.2.2.
Projects:
Star Cats
Five Nights at Freddy's
Phoenix Wright

Doing a quick search, yes it seems to me as if memkit would do it, link here: https://www.omnimaga.org/the-axe-parser-project/axiom-requests/msg340795/#msg340795 also check out the post after that and the link in there and read some stuff there.

Okay thank you. I need that in my Windows XP program, which I am hoping can be used as a shell.
