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

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

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.

* ZTrumpet feeds himself to the lobster...

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?
