A-Code compile on PC; runtime on Arduino

This is a continuation of a project from 4 years ago. At that time, I designed and implemented a program to take English like commands ("Blink Slowly") and execute them on an SSC-32. I have since split the program into two modules. One which translates the English commands into integer tok...

Re: Ballons

Move the RANDOMIZE command to the beginning of your program, outside of the FOR...NEXT loop.

It only needs to be called once.

Re: Back2BASIC news

How about tables? I have many tables generated in Excel and then cut and pasted into Word ( the article is saved from Word in HTM format ). How do I convert them into or specify them for your desired format? I guess I could take screen shots and include them as images... Also the style guide refers ...

Re: Back2BASIC news

How much memory...?

How can I tell how much memory space my program is using when running? I want to port my FreeBASIC code to a μ-processor and am trying to determine if I can fit my variables into its limited memory space...

Anyone else try to do this before?

Re: Moving to more Advanced Techniques

So can an array of UDTs be REDIMmed like a standard array?

I see 4 UDTs from my example. Player, Script, Label, and Move. Do you agree?

Re: Moving to more Advanced Techniques

Oops, clicked the wrong button. That was a link to my old project that implemented an interpreter for scripting an animatronic figure. I've written about my program that interprets a set of text files into actions to drive animatronic figures (a-code), that are controlled by a serial servo controlle...

Re: Shell issue

I am curious...

Do you mean to execute the following?
Shell("""c:\temp\toto\test.bat""")

Re: Exec and variables

In WIndows Explorer, right-click on the program and select "Properties". These is a tab named "Compatibility" and there should be a checkbox for "Run As Administrator". Check it, apply and exit.

I had a picture. but can't see how to upload one in this forum.
