I imagine it is getting harder to choose the tokens.
It is, when I suggest him new features via chat, he often comes up with "I would like to add this, but I would need to figure out a good token to use :P"

Can we have a sign command that would return the sign of a number.  Like this:
sign -9 = -1
sign 9 = 1
sign -9001 = -1
sign 9001 = 1
sign 0 = 0
You could use the [2nd] [sin] button.

Is it possible to easily do this in Asm, or would it be the same as ( # > 0 ) - ( # < 0 ) ?

just read the high bit, which carries the sign, and then differentiate between positive and zero.

I can't wait until Axe Parser supports reading/writing to individual bits

DJ, you can substitute your own addresses instead of L1 - L6 if you want.  L1 - L6 are just numbers after all. :)

Yeah I know, I checked WikiTI for most of the addresses. Not sure how it would help for binary stuff, tho :P

Bits not bytes ;) Yeah I cant wait for this either :) It will make a few things quite usefull.

Gah, my bad. :)  Now that I've read 'bits', I really want this to happen too.  It'll be fun to manipulate stuff in binary! ;D

Technically, you could use calculations to do this with the 'pixel' commands, but it would be a lot of useless calculations. ;D

You can also do it with some loops or lookuptables coupled with AND and OR commands, but its a hassle :P

I use 'and 1' or any other number to do this atm.  iirc there is an asm command like 'set 4,(1337)' or something like that.

Just curious, would it be useful to set and get exact bits in the 2 byte number?  Like "get the 11th bit" and "set the 2nd bit" or is it more useful to have the Nth bit with N being variable?  Unfortunately, these routines with variable bits are kinda big.  Big enough where they wouldn't be inline like the constant bit checking and I would make it a subroutine to save space.

I might be able to do both, but I'll have to come up with some clever syntax.

By the way, I just coined a new term: "Axe Hax" for clever exploits of Axe commands. :)

You could optimize the AND/OR that will reset/set a single bit to a simple 2-byte RES/SET opcode. That way you won't even need extra tokens for constant bit commands.

hmm, could this even be remotly possible:
having a way to change the macro ourselves, ie I like using the "And/Or/Xor" commands bitwise.  I personally always use them this way and use them a lot like this.  If you compiled the new phoenix/raven game I'm making with the new version it would completly fail when running it.

Those commands are still there, but they've just changed syntax.  It makes the code more readable too because now you're using and/or/xor as single character operators just like addition, subtraction, multiplication, and the others.
