An Axiom is a way for third party assembly programmers to add commands to Axe.  You can read more about them in the latest version of Axe.

Its a appvar (if you know what that is) that can be included as a library to your axe program.
It allows you to execute some commands axe cannot, or in a highly optimized way.
This is because it is written in the assembly (asm) language, focusing on its function, other than the code the compiler exports.

Ahh, okay. So it's basically like an assembly macro to be used in an axe program?

Yep.
An example axiom, MemKit, is included with axe 0.5.0 and up packages.
The axiom tokens for it can be found in vars>zoom.
Have fun!

AFAIK, there's an axiom SDK included with Axe

So how do I make my own?

Download the Axe .zip file and there's a folder called "Developers". Inside there's an AxiomSDK.z80 file (or whatever it's called). It's a highly commented Z80 source to help you write your own Axioms -- just replace some numbers, stick in your own routine (all the instructions are in the comments), and compile.

AIFAK? what does that mean? And how do I use this sdk?

AFAIK == "as far as I know"

Do you know the Z80 Assembly language then?
Because that is required to do so.

well, one thing you can do is just write it up in Axe, Disassemble, then just rework from there, and yuo don't have to worry much about technical stuff

Sounds like it's out of my range of possibilities right now. I'm new enough to ASM that writing any more than a basic "Hello World" is a feat for me.
