String Command
#1
Does N7/6 have the ability or command to perform Basic's string(var, text$) command?

J

In the meantime... I can use something like...

function String(var, txt)
    tmp = ""
    for z = 1 to var
        tmp = tmp + txt
    next
    return tmp
endfunc

Nope, sorry! But I can add it if you want. Is it useful?

I checked around some on the web. On some page 'str(string, repeat)' looks like the function you want. In naalaa 'str' is already used. Wouldn't it make more sense if the name of the function was 'repeat', which is not a reserved word in naalaa (in other languages repeat/until is a thing, but naalaa uses do/until, so ...).

Maybe

Code:
foo = "bar"*5

would be a sexy way of doing it. But, ugh, probably that would just be confusing? As it is, the * operator converts both sides to numbers. But I could add a rule that applies only if left side is a string and right side is a number. Maybe? No ... too confusing ... I think. Maybe. Would the other compiler creators laugh at me? I hate those guys, with their framed university diplomas and silly golf pants! No!

Thanks Marcus. Is it useful? It is one of the string functions that I rarely use... so adding it to Naalaa would probably be more trouble than it is worth... lol

I was trying to convert an old Basic version of Mastermind when I came across the "string" command... The game may not be completed... Goto's! I really do not like goto's... some I can convert but some ... ugh!  That is a subject for another time....

I will probably go with the little "string" function for now... but, based on the number of times I use it, adding it Naalaa may not be necessary... But thank you for the offer anyway... much appreciated...

Now that you do not have to spend time on the "string" command... you could probably put that time towards the creation of the Neural Interface... right? Moo Ha Ha Ha....

I wrote a simplified version of Mastermind
It's not perfect, but it's playable  Big Grin

================================
              MASTERMIND simplified

 The board has 8 rows and 4 circles in each row
 - 8 rows      : eight chances to win the game
 - 4 circles  : guess what color

 There are 8 possible colors to choose.
 To help you win the game, watch the colored hints :
 - GREEN, correct in color and position
 - RED, color in wrong position

 Controls
 - Use Mouse and Left Click on the color
  Your mouse is only visible on 'Choose' Layout
 - ESC to quit
 - F5 is a secret key to preview solution

================================

Code:
#win32

Very nice! Very challenging. Eight guesses with eight colours. I like it! Well done!
