Axe Parser
Beta 0.2.4



One word to describe this release: grayscale!

New Features:
  • Draw pixels to the back buffer (grayscale)
  • Get pixels form the back buffer
  • Draw sprites to the back buffer (grayscale)
  • 4 color grayscale rendering
  • Draw ANY buffer directly to the screen without having to copy it to the main buffer
  • Look-ahead parsing significantly reduces code size when using static pointers

Changed:
  • A couple new auto-opts for "is negative" and "is not negative" .
  • Fixed bug with Cos( Sin( and square root as second argument
  • Fixed bug with >Frac and >Dec when last line was a pointer.

Cool new example program to test 4 color grayscale.

No new commands, but you got to admit these new features are pretty cool. Even cooler if had I decided to throw in application compiling :P

New Features:
  • Real error scrolling just like BASIC!  Finally!
  • The new token names are now automatic.  They turn on if the program has an Axe Header
  • Axe does not re-save the settings unless you make changes.  It will keep it unarchived if you want to unarchive it.
  • Commands list shows both new and old token spellings.
  • More nested expressions are allowed in a single statement.

Changed:
  • Fixed some bugs in the new tokens and documentation.

EDIT: Please Re-Download if you got a copy earlier.  There was a big problem with the error scrolling on programs larger than 10kb that I'm still not able to fix, but at least it won't crash the calc now.

Probably one of my largest updates in terms of useful features.

New Features:
  • Compile your programs to applications!
  • Axioms can be imported for added functionality!
  • Custom interrupt support!
  • Display Tokens.
  • New token value constants.
  • Find the length of a zero terminated data block.
  • Display small text without defining coordinates first.
  • Sound quality has drastically improved.
  • Developer information included.

Changed:
  • Fixed more bugs with negative numbers (I hate those things!)
  • Error scrolling is much cleaner, but still messes up in gigantic programs
