As the title says, I've made a program that will convert inputted text into Morse! Not only that, but with the power of ASM, it will flash the screen according to what text you entered! You can also save your Morse for use later. Note: This requires CE OS 5.2 or above to run.

This can take every (uppercase) letter and number. You are allowed to input whitespace however I don't really know how to represent that so I just made a slight pause.


The GIFs are weird since I couldn't use CEmu because it doesn't record screen brightness changes so I had to revert to other methods.

Finished! Download Here!

This program won the October 2017 POTM!!! Thank you everyone!
Sounds cool!, I suggest a few optimizations, and the use of this. Also, I think CEmu does do brightness. Check and see., but I'm using a old version of CEmu.

Telling people to use your program generally doesn’t make them want to use your program Wink

Here’s my optimized program, which is much smaller. (I’m not sure, but I think it’s quite a few bytes smaller and noticibly faster)

I removed the assorted lowercase letters, as they are 2 bytes, but uppercase letters are 1 byte, and if your program doesn’t support lowercase letters on input, don’t use them otherwise!

I also made some strings smaller by rephrasing them to be several bytes shorter.

nothing wrong in giving some advice for optimizations, is there??
And I'm the only one who thought of/ implemented this, even though the DelVar command and many other tips have been there, I was the only one (that I know of) to put them in a program

I'll take a look, as _iPhoenix_ pointed out I may end up not using it, but I'm always open to optimizations!

Sadly, the code doesn't work perfectly (It keeps adding an 'A' at the end of every code) but I should be able to fix it. Smile


Code:
10+inString(“ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVQXYZ”,Str2→θ

0x5, I knew there had to be a better way than what I was doing! Very Happy

A few things I'm confused by:

Code:
“One space
If Str2="
augment(L₃,{2→L₃

I'm a little confused why you put the " (the top line) there, couldn't it be removed?


Code:
sub(Str0,A,1
inString(“.-“,Ans→L₃(1+dim(L₃

The only part here I'm confused by is the →L₃(1+dim(L₃
by the looks of it, it is going to store the . or - into '1+the entire length of L₃' position of L₃ . Could you explain how this works?

Thanks _iPhoenix_! This really helps!
Ok, here’s my explanation:

The A at the end is there because I am a failure at typing when I am on a plane that is trying to land.

The top line is my comment. I was saying that there is one space there, as it would not be immediately obvious to someone visually copying the code. So of course, it can be removed (I am assuming you are talking about the “One space)

Here’s that last one, translated from TI-BASIC to English:

Get the A’th character in Str0
Find that character’s position in the string “.-“ (return 0 if it is not in the string), and store that number to the spot after the last element in the list.

inString() is pretty much the opposite of sub(), but not really.

inString(string, substring,(optional) n) returns the value of the first character of the first instance of substring past position n in string

In your program, you “paired” the ‘.’ character with the value 1. Because the initial sub() command already gave me my substring, which I knew had a length of 1, I put it at the front of string, where it will return 1 if it is passed as string. So, my inString() command so far looks like this:
inString(“.

Also, you had a “-“, which you paired with 2. I put this in the second position in my string, so that if it was the substring, it would return 2.
At this step, the inString command looks like this:
inString(“.-

Because all other characters are supposed to be 0 and inString automatically returns 0 if the character isn’t in the string, I can finish up my inString() command by inputting the substring, giving me the full command.

I’m essentially “undoing” the sub() command that I used to turn the values in the “database” list into .’s and -’s. Take note that I used the same string in my sub() command.


Code:
If L₃(A
Str0+sub(“.-“,L₃(A),1→Str0


I’ll explain the above code, too, and why it is the opposite of my inString() command.

The If statement works the same as the last part of the inString(), where if the substring isn’t in the string, the command returns 0. The If statement ignores these 0’s, and prevents a crash, too.

The sub() command uses the same string as the inString, and I explained why to a sufficient extent. Hopefully.

Put more generally, if the string in sub(string, position, length) is the same as the string in inString(string, substring,(optional) n), and string does not contain any duplicate substrings of length length, then inString(string,sub(string,position,length)) will return position.

I really, really hope this makes sense. I hate BBcode now. Expecially italics.

Now, let’s explain the original question!

Here’s something cool with lists:
If you have a list of size n, and n<999, you can store a value to the (n+1)th position in the list, and the list’s size will expand to accommodate that value.

For example, the following code is valid:

Code:
1->dim(L1
1->L1(1
2->L1(2

but the following code should give a (domain? dimension? divide by zero? I don’t know/I’m too tired) error:

Code:
1->dim(L1
1->L1(1
2->L1(3


Instead of using augment to append a one-element list, I store it to this spot.

Time to ICE my fingers! (Really, really bad pun.)

Typed on an iPhone... OuchI really hope this helps.


Edit: I’ll look for the bug with the A.
Very nice work TheLastMillennial! It looks like some pretty wild code going one there; keep it up Smile

err... I didn't check ticalc, but I stand corrected. I was talking about cemetech, of course Smile
Hey I figured out the bug! The For( loop was looping one too many times. Laughing
Anyways, I'm currently capturing the screenshots and I'm hoping to get this uploaded soon! Very Happy


Uploaded! I'll edit the first post when it is accepted!
This is a very cool idea Smile.
Hey small update.
v 3.20
I swapped the light changing program from prgmDARKNESS to prgmSETLCD since I've been using prgmSETLCD more than prgmDARKNESS. And the fewer programs, the better!
Included brightness saving feature so when you quit, your original brightness is restored.
I've uploaded to the archives and I'm waiting for it to be accepted.
EDIT: It's been accepted! Download here! Very Happy
