Small Font Program Editor
« on: December 14, 2015, 06:15:04 pm »
Since there hasn’t been any major community projects lately, I have decided to post the current version of the small font program editor I have been working on for several months.
Currently, the editor is fairly stable, and I have moved on to adding features.
I started this project because I wasn’t really satisfied with zStart’s small font editor, it used the standard menus and sometimes when saving it corrupted a small part of the program.
My editor uses the same graph font for all the menus.
Cool features:
Since it uses the VAT to select a program, you can edit hidden programs, programs can also be: archived, locked, an appvar, or even a list. (If you open something you aren't supposed to edit there is a good chance it could crash)
It displays all the Axe tokens correctly (but not ones from an axiom)
All the keys and menus are in files so if you want to edit what the keys do, or change a menu you can (it needs to be recompiled after)

Notes:
It would be awesome if I could get some community interest!
If you are just testing the editor you just need to download prgmEDITOR
You need the other files only if you are compiling prgmEDITRSRC
WARNING: THIS COULD DAMAGE PROGRAMS THAT YOU OPEN WITH IT (although I have only seen it happen when parts of RAM is corrupted)

Planned features and bugs:
All of the options under the Y= button don’t do anything or are buggy
there isn’t a catalogue
rarely the vars menu gives the wrong token
IT CRASHES OR ACTS WEIRDLY IF IT OPENS A FILE WITH LESS THAN THREE LINES!!!
I would like to make it very customizable
If it is an Axe program the custom tokens slow it down more than I would like them to.
I'm still around... kind of.

I have fixed several bugs and I added a temporary feature to recall form the catalog - hopefully this will be fixed as it just uses axe's input command.
I have identified that while str1 and gdb1 are displayed correctly when recalled from a menu they won't add correctly.

Also, Runner why did you move this to z80? It is written in Axe.   ???

I probably will keep posting updates whether or not anyone else posts.
(Is there any interest in this or is it just me?)

@E37 because the Axe forum is for asking help with Axe and for Axe development itself. The z80 forum is for all z80-calculator projects, which is what this is.

Looks cool! I don't have zStart installed anymore, though, so I can't use it D:

EDIT: Sorry, misunderstood how to use it. I'll look in to it later.

I don't do much programming these days, but it is always nice to have options. Did you fix the bug where it was crashing on programs that were 3 lines or smaller?

yay a small font programm editor :)
since zStart's doesn't work in my calc (something like only ti84+) and due to that I never even had the option to use a small font editor I'm very happy to see this project going on! I'll definitely give it a try, it sounds really promising.
I'm sorry if i might make some mistakes, I'm German so English isn't my first language. Please correct me :)

I have spent some more time on the project and I have fleshed out some more of the menus and reduced the file size some.
I also added a flashing cursor and APD.
I am looking for anyone who is willing to beta test this project. (Dudeman313, you said you were interested in beta testing...)

Is there any interest in this project?
