So you're creating an appvar of length 2316, then write 0 bytes at byte 2316 (which is outside the var), hmmm, interesting.

The Axe Documentation states that 0 is not a valid size for the Fill argument.

Then why doesn't the axe compiler check for that?

There are a million different ways to crash your calc by giving bad arguments to Axe commands, but it's quite difficult to catch them all.  You could definitely check for zero in the case when it is a constant defined, but then you would still run into trouble when it is a variable, which leaves the behavior inconsistent and possibly undesirable.  In the end I imagine it's just really low on the priority list of things to do for Axe.

That's actually writing 0 times the /byte/ 2316 at address A. :P And yeah, 0 is not a valid size.

It's writing 2316 to the 0 bytes (65536 in fact, that's why Axe says 0 is not a valid size) after A. But I have no idea why it does what you say it does.

And why don't programs always check if the user read the readme before running ?

More seriously, that could be a feature for a computer compiler, but here, the compiler works on calc, and already has enough work to do on a 6MHz processor to compile programs in a reasonable time so I guess it is better for it not to check if the user made something that was said in the documentation to crash.

Sorry if I answer with something that seems unrelated, English is not my primary language and I might not have understood well. Sorry if I make English mistakes too.

It's true. Also, sometimes you want to do some crazy stuff in Axe. If the compiler always checked for perfect syntax, there would be a great deal of stuff you couldn't do.

I made such program before for two of my games and it's available in the downloads section as a standalone, but it's written in BASIC, so it would have to be converted to ASM in order to be useable in Axe. :P Even in BASIC it works kinda great, because it checks if a list == 0 before running the game, so the first time you start it, it asks the user a password that is located near the end of the install instructions inside the readme. If you type an incorrect password, it says RTFM, and if you enter it successfully it never asks you again (unless you delete the LN00B list)
In case you are wondering where I went, I left Omni back in 2015 to form CodeWalrus due to various reasons explained back then, but I stopped calc dev in 2016 and am now mostly active on the CW Discord server at https://discord.gg/cuZcfcF

Lol, not bad. I guess that what could also be done in a program with a save feature is, in pseudo-code:

If savegame doesn't exist
   Ask for the password in the readme
   If wrong password
      Display "RTFM"
      End The Game
   Else
      Create the savegame
   End
End

I also thought about another solution, that is not oncalc this time: rename everything in the zip, including extensions, with absolutely unclear names, except the readme. Then the user only has the possibility to read the readme that would reveal what file has to be renamed in. The only reason why I didn't do that is because Windows stupidly hides extensions so noobs would have a hard time renaming files to their extensions.

Yeah that can be another solution as well. However you have to make sure that the linking software people will use is not stupid enough to auto-rename the programs to your newly-created random names when sent on-calc. I know that normally, each program has one internal name of 8 characters, plus a second name for the filename on the computer, but I am unsure if every linking software makes the difference.
