Re: Can not running on my Xcode....sadly

I wonder if with the new Xcode whether we will ever be able to create apps again as the version of the SDK has not been updated in almost 2 years, another words it's predates iOS so 11 and 12. Before my iMac crapped out on me, a lot of the simple their coding statements such as SLIDER statement no l...

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 ...
