That shouldn't be too hard, there is already a bit opcode in ASM.

Code: [Select]
179->A
For(B,0,7)
If bit{A*8+B}
.Do Stuff
End
End

It already is possible to extract single bits from a byte or word with the e command (that's Euler's constant, not just a plain lowercase e). For instance, AeB would retrieve the Bth bit of the low byte of A, with B=0 corresponding to the most significant bit and B=7 corresponding to the least significant bit. The code you posted could be emulated with the following:

Code: [Select]
{POINTER}→A
For(B,0,7)
If AeB
.Do Stuff
End
End

Yes, and also multiplying an address by 8 loses a LOT of important information. The nibble command gets around multiplying by 2 by having two separate commands, one for flash(apps) and one for ram.

What I think should be added is the ability to *set* bits through a method other than ORing or ANDing bit masks, of which not everyone is familiar with

Especially, the people that come from a BASIC background (like me)

EDIT: Oh, and are there still plans for mode 7 gfx? That would be great.

I think Mode 7 will be added through an axiom.

It would also be nice to be able to back up programs even if they are archived :)

We can't? I always thought we could... it would be a nice idea in case before compiling we screwed up our code to the point of requiring a rollback. X.x

Yeah for some reason it does nothing when the code is archived o.O maybe because it doesnt auto backup when its archived?

Probably because it's archived. If its archived, the reasoning is that you aren't working on it at the time. There is very little reason to back it up. If you need to, you could back it up manually, or unarchive it.

The problem with backing up things in archive is that there isn't always enough free ram to create the backup (whereas you are guaranteed to have it if it already exists in ram).

You could always add that yourself. In fact, you are probably doing character processing on the string anyway, since input returns a string of tokens.

By then there's no way to know how long the string is, though.

This doesn't sound like too much of a problem; can the parser check and then tell the user "Not enough RAM to backup" if it errors?
I think this is a good idea. ;)
