Re: Aranym Network under OSX 10.12

So am I. It's ThorstenOtto most recent snapshot. Like I say it's not a show stopper, it just looks weird. Soon as I re-grab the window it's goes back to normal.

When I snap the screen the white host cursor doesn't appear in the snapshot, so I had to use a camera. MacAranym really could use an SDL overhaul.

Re: Aranym Network under OSX 10.12

Just a heads up for Mac users. I updated to macOS High Sierra (10.13.2) and like usual something in aranym breaks. When I ungrab the mouse a weird XOR like box appears around the white host mouse, but only while it's in the window. Regrab the window and it disappears. It's not hurting anything thoug...

Re: No Atari ST core?

There are other Atari cores, but not an ST core. https://github.com/MiSTer-devel/Atari800_MiSTer
That's why the FPGA stuff was moved to separate forum sections. Avoid if not interested. MiSTer has the potential to host an ST core one day if someone wants to do the work. :wink:

Re: reverse string or MIRROR$

XOR won't work in the case. You may of misinterpreted the function. ;) Don't know why charles feels the need to derail the topic. As for mirror$() it's very low on my priority list. It's true omikron lacks rinstr() I see why it might be useful there. Maybe he's attempting to port omikron sources to ...

Re: reverse string or MIRROR$

I stand by comments about BYTE{}, just as reliable if you know how GFA manages strings internally. If you want your code to look clean and correct the string functions are sufficient. I never code for the interpreter only the compiled end result. Charles asked about asm, so my assumption was he was ...

Re: reverse string or MIRROR$

String concatenation and MID$() generate library calls (BSRs) which execute much more code. BYTE{} swapping even with a temporary placeholder generates simple move.b instructions. I don't think this routine requires asm or such optimizations, but I always have fun with such things no matter how smal...

Re: reverse string or MIRROR$

An odd size string wouldn't need its center character moved. You can cut the loop iterations in half and swap the characters in the original string and eliminate a$ entirely.

Re: N.AES

They haven't done anything for like a decade and you need to have the original disk, so I didn't think it was a problem to give the one file. However, I had an email exchange with woller and the "serial number" issue came up. To avoid any problems it was removed from my site.

I can add it to the to-do list. ;)

For maximum speed I'd use BYTE{} as PEEK() works in supervisor mode.

Re: reducing the source file,removing empty lines etc

The Basic Omikron compiler stores empty lines and comments in the compiled program. By removing all that is unnecessary, the size of the compiled program can be significantly reduced. A baseline is 255 bytes. Unused octets on a line are compiled, but take up less space than comments. That's why I m...
