Version 1.2.4 released! - boriel - 10-12-2009

Ok, version 1.2.3 has been released. You can download it at <!-- m --><a class="postlink" href=""></a><!-- m --> (as always).

Changes since v.1.2.3
  • ! Detected and fixed potential memory leak when using @operator
  • LOAD/SAVE/VERIFY features added!
Download here: <!-- m --><a class="postlink" href=""></a><!-- m -->

  • SAVE "xxx" CODE ... and SAVE "xxx" SCREEN$ work as in the original Sinclair BASIC. The same applies for LOAD & VERIFY.
  • For LOAD & VERIFY, when a R-Tape Loading error occurs, the program doesn't stop. You have to check PEEK 23610 (ERR_NR) for value 26. If that value exists, then the LOAD/VERIFY operation failed.
  • At this moment, LOAD/SAVE/VERIFY can be interrupted by the user by pressing BREAK/Space, which exits the program and returns to the ROM BASIC. This can be changed in the future to behave like the previous point (signaling the break in ERR_NR and returning).
  • SAVE "xxx" DATA <varname>( ) behaves like the original Sinclair BASIC, but here you can save/load/verify not only arrays, but single variables. Parenthesis can be ommited (in Sinclair BASIC they were mondatory). You can also use LOAD/VERIFY with this.
  • SAVE "xxx" DATA with no varname saves ALL the entire user variable variable ├írea plus the HEAP memory zone. That is, it saves all the program state. You can also use LOAD/VERIFY with this.
  • When using LOAD "xxx" DATA... you won't see the message neither "Number array:" nor "Char array:", but "Bytes: " instead. This is because ZX BASIC use always bytes (LOAD/SAVE ... CODE) for storing user variables (ZX BASIC is machine code, so BASIC variables are nonsense).

Thank you very much! I haven`t noticed any problems with label pointer yet.
