Just a quick question, does exiting a loop with a goto command cause a memory leak in ICE like it does in Ti-BASIC? Thanks in advance!

Code:
Lbl A
While 1
Goto A
End
Nope.

ICE is compiled rather than interpreted, so it doesn't have to keep track of end statements at runtime the way BASIC does.

Agreed.

It compiles into assembly similar to this:

Code:

 jr -2

Basically moves program execution back 2 bytes [the size of a 'jr' instruction] from the next instruction.
Which just indefinitely loops program execution there.
amazing that 4 lines of code compile to 1 instruction at this rare occasion
Correct me if I didn't do this right Mateo >;P

That also means a nasty surprise if you miss an end statement: no RAM clear, it apparently just exits without closing the gfx...
