What I am doing is placing a number, 1000000000, in a list slot, and I need to extract just one digit from it. I would like to use this as a flag system for my project...

Anyways, Basically I need to check the 5th digit of the list slot, or variable. Elfprince gave me this:

here is some pseudo code to extract a stat from a complex number assuming that all stats other than HP max out at 100.

note that I am using (L) to represent the little L


//storing code
//extract atk
4->I //atk has index 4...see above
Text(1,1,"Atk = ",D
Text(10,1,"HP = ",imag((L)PKMST(34)

But what I am needing, like I stated, was just the one digit, to see if it is 0, 1, or 2. I don't know if this is possible, but I sure hope it is...

wel after some thinking I found a way, but it isn't a verry ellegant way. and your graphscreen is cleared.

:A/1000000->B  ;A=the value right from the list
:(pxl-Test(1,18)=1)+(pxl-Test(1,18)=1)->X  ;X=0 or 1 or 2

of course you may use other variables.
basicaly what you're doing here is display the number and than look what it is, I know it is very dumb but I couldn't find a matamatical way of doing this.
maybe you can store this bit in someother variable so you don't need to do this whole drawing piece.
and if you realy want to save your grahpscreen you can alwas store it in a picture but that would make it realy slow.

so it is possible as you see, but not verry nice.

0x5, he seems to solve all kinds of problems. I would grow old looking for it... Razz :0x5:

I will make the attempt to find it later if he doesn't post it first...

to select a specific digit D (counting from the right starting at 1):


To convert a number X into a list of its digits in base 10:


In both of these examples, use the 10^( token instead of writing it out.

Also, see this post

I'm glad DarkerLine got to this first, else I would probably have written my program without remembering the specified single digit. Mine is more weighty, but extracts entire subsets rather than individual numbers. You can find that on my website (near the bottom of my routines page, as it stands currently). Wink
