Snake-eye ...Box car!🎲🚃

 

...I imagine that you have retarded the input speed, for demonstration purposes?🐌

Nope. XB is pretty slow...

Impressive! Have you considered using senior falcons’ extended basic compiler?

Think that at least for the parse/compile phase you would get quite a speedup.

 

Either way I very much like the video/demo and am looking forward seeing how this further develops.

I'm not sure if the XB compiler allows additional linking to assembly routines since I use those to access the PIO port at the low-level.

On a side note, I wanted to use Stevie for the program editing but tabbing was not implemented yet and my primitive compiler expects very specific field widths... Definitely a feature that should be added with the next update.

I’ll see if I can something about that 😃

But what TI-99/4a key combination would one use for TAB forward / backward? 
Also tab positions should be configurable I suppose (flexible positions or fixed e.g. 4 characters?)

You can contact me via PM (or comment in the Stevie development thread), don’t want to hijack this thread.

TAB is already defined in Editor/Assembler as FCTN-7, so I'd recommend that. ;) That's what my PS/2 keyboard maps it to, anyway.
