why would you worry about saving a few bytes if you lose a lot more by putting comments in?

the first was only if Ans is needed preserved. the second works fine if no Ans is used for input or anything...

In that case,

Code:
If 0:comment

is probably the best.

i have recently had the problem of needing an if like this: If A=1 and B=0 or B=10

but the program would read If A=1 and B=0
or would read If B=10
so when B=10 it would run the if without checking A too

i finally tried the dumbest thing i could think of and it worked

If A=1 and (B=0 or B=10)
and it was solved!


note: if this is already common knowledge plz don't laugh at me Sad

Ahh, brings back memories of the days when I couldn't find one simple little problem - and thought myself to be an idiot when I did find it.

Yea, that's just like using:

If (A=1)(not(B)+(B=10

It's simple. The quadratic inside the not is only equal to 0 when B equals 0 or 10. when the quadratic is 0, not( makes it 1, or true, otherwise it's 0, or false. Actually it should be

(A=1)not(B(B-10

because otherwise it might be true when A=2.

Hey, here's something I didn't know before, you can store a string to a list and it won't calculate it untill you ask for it. It also shows a dot next to the list in the list editor.

thats the formula Laughing

Code:
Delvar L2Delvar L1
"L1^2->L2
{2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10->L1

now take a look at L2...
it is the squares of the elements in L1! ({4,9,16,25,36,49,64,81,100,})

the dot is a paper clip: it shows that there is a formula attached to the list.

Is there any BASIC way to retrieve the formula that goes with the list? I know Asm can do it... If so then you can basically have nameable strings!

That's not a string, quotes are how you store equation variables on the 83 series. It works with the graph equation variables to. The 85/86 does it with the = sign, the 89 series with Define() or the store arrow.

Yea but say you do

"{1,2,3}"->Str1
Str1->L1

Dang, the 83 is goofy. Still, that's not storing a string to a list, because only a list can be stored to a list. It just means that strings stored to Str variables are strings, and strings stored to anything else turn into equations or whatnot. Oh look, I'm arguing semantics. Okay, never mind then.

It doesn't matter what it is. If you store "This is not a real string but who cares all right just say it is -> LIST (you don't need the L_), it will be stored anyway and nothing will be done to it. In fact, the data is right there in L_LIST just like in a string.
