Under OS 2.54 MP, everything runs at the exact same speed as on a regular 83+. In 15 MHz mode, the speed increase is much lower than it is on a real 84+, though.

Older Nspire OSes got incredibly slow speeds at times with ASM stuff.

Feature Request:

TI-Basic has the ability to transfer control to another executable, then return when done. Axe should be able to do the same. Maybe, use the command Get( or something, where the command

Get(prgmAAA)

would cause the executable to transfer execution to the asm program AAA, then return to the main.

that would be really easy to write in Axe! just send the info of the program first using the Send Command, while the other Calc is in Get()-mode.

I would do it this way:
1. give the sign: "I'm ready to send a program" with a certain command,
2. then send the length of the name,
3. then the name itself char by char,
4. and then perhaps the type of the data (prgm, locked prgm, appvar,pic etc),
5. and last but not least the data of the program itself.

I am willing to write this routine this evening, but not jet (it's just 16:00 o'clock over here)

Quigibo, this BCALL may prove useful. I've never tried it though, so I don't know exactly how it works.

@ calc84maniac: Nice

@LordConupiter: Not 2 calc data sending. I'm talking about having the ability to run other programs from an Axe compiled program.

If you want to call another Axe program, unless you desperately need them to be two separate compiled programs, this can already be achieved with included programs. Just call it as a subroutine in your main program without a Return, like this:

 Code: (Your main program) [Select].PROGRAMClrHomeDisp "Hello "sub(A)Disp iReturnLbl AprgmINCLUDE Code: (prgmINCLUDE) [Select]..Disp "world!"Return

did you mean that! sorry, I misinterpreted your Post, for U suggested to use the Get command, and that's already used for data transfer between 2 calcs.

@Runer: how did you do that! those two code block next to each other?

@Runner: That method includes the CODE making up the included program and still compiles as one program. Think of what happens in the TI-Basic code

Code: [Select]
Disp "Hello"prgmZCLRHOMEDisp "Goodbye"
I'm suggesting Axe have a way to do that. Like what calcmaniac said, using B_CALL ExecProg

And I think ExecLib would be a nice token for it, which could be renamed to Exec, or ExecProg, with the following syntax:
Code: (Axe) [Select]
ExecprgmTESTor
Code: (Axe) [Select]
ExecProg("prgmTEST".or"prgmTEST"->Str1ExecProg(Str1just what would be easier for the compiler, and what fits the best to the other Axe commands. I personally prefer the second one, and perhaps even ExecCalc(, for there is the GetCalc command, and I like to see similar named commands is the language. I also like to see DelVar changed to DelCalc(, or GetCalc( to GetVar(

Execlib only exists on 84+ OS, and only starting at a certain version I think. Not a good choice, I'd say.

ok, I didn't know that. perhaps e^( then? that's [2nd][LN]. or ExpReg, which can be found in the [STAT]->[CALC] menu as option [ 0 ].

but I still aim for syntax similarity for Calc files handling:
DelVar -> DelVar(
Archive -> ArchVar(
UnArchive -> UnArchVar(
GetCalc( -> GetVar(

and I wonder why input an float are in the external variables section, since float would fit better in the data/storage part, and input in the Text part.

I think this is very difficult to accomplish.  In order to run a program, it must be copied into 959C.  Unfortunately that is where the current program already is, so you would need a 3rd piece of code that would copy the original program back into its original RAM space, copy the second program into 959C, PUSH a piece of its own code onto the stack so that when the program exits, it is able to copy the original program back onto 959C

And I need to check wether a pxl is on or not within that picture.

But how would TIOS do it then? subprograms can be called in BASIC, or do BASIC programs not have to be copied to 959C?
