But it also encourages good programming habits such as checking the syntax of the commands you are going to run

True. It was just a warning, btw.

When little things cause crashes, it's annoying.

Were the numbers the coordinates for the Line( or Horizontal commands? I don't remember what I put there and I'm to lazy to look it up :P

As for that line. You know those little lowercase letters above [7], [8], and [9] (u, v, and w)? Well I have no idea what they are called but they basically store equations, much like a string does. So say we do "5+A→u and then store a value of five to A. If you just run u then you will get an answer of ten. Make more sense?

Ya, they can be pretty handy. I'm fairly sure I used it in your program when I didn't really need to but I was tired when I optimized :P

Eh that seems like too much work, I haven't typed in any code over like 100 bytes and even that took forever for me. I'll try to get it up tomorrow though.

Parametric equations. :)

It's not parametric equations. Those variables are used for sequence graphing.

HINT: Press MODE->Seq->Y=

Sorry, souvik is right; they are the sequence vars, not parametric vars. :)

Here it is.

EDIT:
Here:
http://dcs.cemetech.net/index.php?title=Developers'_SDK

Look under the BASIC category.

Looked through this, I understand how to work the header, but everything else loses me, how do i even enable DCS libraries?
