Off-Calc Axe Parser
« on: December 20, 2010, 01:12:23 pm »
Hello everyone,

I am interested in an off-calc Axe Parser to compile .8xp files to Assembly (just like the application Axe).

Yes, I know. I can use WabbitEmu to do so.

However, I'm afraid that there isn't one yet. Is making one possible?

It's a project I'd like to take actually :)

You mean on a computer? Sure, it's possible. All it would do, is replicate the axe compiler, and create the asm file.
Also, asm files are .8xp, too.

Yes, that's what I mean, just a PC Compiler.

Okay. The easiest way to do it without Quigibo is to figure out what code turns into what and how the parser treats code. Note that asm programs start at $9D95, and I wouldn't do this without knowing a LOT about asm. That's the reason I'm not doing this. I don't know enough to effectively do this.

Neither do I :( I know just a bit.

However, it would be interesting if someone took this up :)

When quigibo was doing the axe parser in the beginning, I offered to help with that, but it got complicated, so I didn't ever do it.

Wasn't Quigibo talking about doing this for multi-page apps anyway?
∂²Ψ    -(2m(V(x)-E)Ψ
---  = -------------
∂x²        ℏ²Ψ

yes. In the multi-page app thread: http://ourl.ca/8382/154481
Read the last paragraph.

I see, it's a good idea from my point of view. Faster. Simpler. More functionalities.

I actually have been working on an on-computer compiler for a while, but progress on that will remain secret until the calculator version 1.0.0 finally comes out because I don't want to delay that for a side project.

Great! It sounds like a good secret project! I look forward to it.

Yeah I suggest waiting until 1.0.0 comes out, else you'll twice twice as much things to update everytime a beta comes out.

Yes. I also hope 1.0.0 is not the final release :)
