Re: VISION 4.1a is out!

@lp/vido: is there a description for such ldg usable by zview? BTW unless a 680x0 application can load a ColdFire ldg, there is no interest to have this; and compiling VISION for ColdFire may be complicated especially because of the pure 680x0 routines I don't want to port to 'C'. https://sourcefor...

Re: VISION 4.1a is out!

I maked some zView load modules. Complete list here: http://atari.gfabasic.net/stg/zcodecs.htm I ended up writing these for zView because I found GemView scheme harder to implement and all the docs are German. However, the scheme isn't perfect. The load modules can't report back what went wrong (lik...

Re: Is there a dialect of BASIC that ...

No BASIC I know of provides full blown structures. However, GFA can sort of simulate a single structure using the ABSOLUTE command. Not sure what the proper term is, but you can't create multiple instances of the same simulated structure. It's rather limited, but I've found it handy at times. ' setu...

Re: standalone bombs and runtime from editor doesnt

I think this is a documented bug in my gfa hypertext. Don't use byte variables in FOR loops that count backwards. Fails when compiled. Instead use word variables. Speed-wise there is no advantage to using bytes variables. Change it to word type and retest it.

Re: nine bombs ?what is this error gfa ?

I assume you called some asm routine or POKEd some address that corrupted the running program itself. The only way to mess up the stack is calling some badly written asm. There are other registers you must not destroy or gfa freaks out. It's explained in the manual, see the chapter on C:() or CALL o...

Re: nine bombs ?what is this error gfa ?

There's a list in the gfa manual. When gfa gives you a bogus error message you've done something so terribly bad that it sent the cpu off in to la la land. Probably executing garbage as code somewhere. ;)

Re: xdef xref asm gfa

No need to save megabytes of video data. Freeze the video and snap an jpeg of the asm file. ;)
The $X option requires xdef. Separate asm modules can access common code using xref. All variable types can be passed to asm routines. Understanding how they are passed on the stack is the key.

Assembler can be used a couple of different ways. Clearly you have not read the manual.

Same example compiles with the original GFA package.

Re: wind_get WF_WORKXYWH inconsistencies?

Different AES implementations have different size widgets. Make sure the initial full size of the window is calculated using wind_calc() based on the size of the work area you require. That's another possible cause. ;)
