I think he means its just a bit more optimized than:

Code: [Select]
If A=1
Bla
End
If A=2
Bla
End
...

But a switch command would be a *lot* more optimized than both, and a lot better looking

Edit for a completely unrelated subject: Can I bring up again a feature request for alternate steps for For() loops, the same way it is in BASIC?
There's actually a pretty easy way to do this: http://ourl.ca/4129/77715

I think I found something that's both an incompatibility issue and a feature request.
Can the instant goto be made compatible with CalcUtil's "save screen" option?
The save screen is when you quit out of the program editor it asks if you want to save changes or not, very useful :) but it causes crashes with axe :P

Quigibo, if you are implementing Switch statements, can you include support for Strings?

In computers, no programming language has switchs with strings, and I'd love them ;D

Not that Axe has string comparison features in the first place :P

the thing is how easy and optimize switches would be.  You would only have to check the value of the original statement once, and then compare that to all the others similar to a long chain of "Else!If... Else!If..." statements.   I thought it was a good idea, and I think I could help code it, though I doubt it's really that difficult to code.

While we're at it.. I also suggest adding optimized string comparison functions :)

C# and related languages actually do have switches for strings (I've used them more than once). However, it would be nice to have any string comparisons at all in Axe, since we want name strings and stuff like that.

It might be worse in Axe since string comparison is so inefficient (there's no string comparison test yet anyway).

While we're at it.. I also suggest adding optimized string comparison functions :)

I had a string utility Axiom back when Axe supported them, but I lost it when I lost my thumb drive. I could easily recode it, though :D

But it'd be nice as a built-in function too, if Axe still has space on its data page?

thing is, string comparison isn't hard to make, but hard to optimize, from what I can tell; and putting that in a switch in axe could be painful indeed :(

Oh yeah, Axe doesn't even have string comparison.

It's really hard to code like this in stuff like 'Easy', 'Medium' or 'Hard'. There are lot of ways to turn this around of course, but indirect.

A little feature :
When we go in compilation menu, it could be nice to put the last source compiled at the beginning of the list. What do you think ?

I think it could be very intuitive, and usefull.

An option to disable the token swaps when editing source. They slow down the program editor a bit, compounded by my recent switch to the DCS7 8-line program editor. I can deal with ref() instead of Rect().

Oh, I have a feature request: a Symbol Table. In other words, I want to define memory locations other than L1-L6 as alpha-numeric symbols. For example, this:
Code: [Select]
GetCalc(Str1, 768) -> {L1+700}r
...code...
Pt-Off(2,5,Pic1)->{L1+700}r
Copy(L6, {L1+700}r, 768
becomes this:
Code: [Select]
#Define(BUF,L1+700
GetCalc(Str1, 768) -> BUF
...code...
Pt-Off(2,5,Pic1)->BUF
Copy(L6,BUF,768)
ASM programmers can do this, so why can't we?
