Creating a READ / DATA construct is an interesting thought, but it implies modifying the sB program during runtime. Would be fun :o
I think so (since I built my own computer from a Raspberry PI, the Systems Programmer in me is coming back out)

Re: A versatile clipboard

In the Weatherman App I am writing that calls (runs) multiple programs, this is exactly how I use the CLIPBOARD — I create a message string and then use the SPLIT after reading it to separate the fields into their variables, exactly like your code. I think I mentioned in the other post that numeric ...

I had to run the program 32 times to get any errors, and this is my first screen with errors:

Duh, I forgot to replace the Function.

Here it is, I changed the font size so it fits in one screen: SET OUTPUT FONT SIZE 12

This is what I get.

Re: IBM mainframe 360/30 vs. iPad 2019

Talking about inconveniences: before the 3th generation 360/30, i learned programming on a 2nd generation IBM 1620, which had punched papertape as I/O and intermediate storage. You had to be able to "read" the 5-bit code on the tape, in order to make local corrections in it, using a little perforat...

Re: IBM mainframe 360/30 vs. iPad 2019

I tried both programs and on my iPad Pro 10.5 Inch running iOS 10.3.3, rbytes code just says "Finished" and Henko's code it displays 0.276392.

I do not get the matrix rbytes gets.

Re: IBM mainframe 360/30 vs. iPad 2019

I remember having to program punch card machines and other devices using Black wire boards with different colored and different length wires that acted as compascitors, resistors, switches, etc. And Assembler F was the main language that OS/HASP was written in. Some real good memories! (And don't fo...

Re: Sprite Clock

Great program Richard. I don't do too much with SPRITES, but this program will give me a chance to try somethings, like making the clocks smaller, and running or seeing if I can run multiple clocks from different time zones/continents. I have SPRITE sheets for casino games, and I finally downloaded ...

Re: The game of Hamurabi with a new coat

Good job on the game and interface. I like the version of this game. It is always interesting in how people today see the programs that basically started the online game industry and their take on it. Like with your Risk game, this will be one of the games I'll be playing (even after mine is release...
