Re: SpecBAS program under development

I'll probably need a couple of days breathing space to figure out and assimilate everything you have shown me, Paul and Ash. Fallen behind in my studies and need to go back to the beginning and start over because I made or accepted changes without stopping to think about how it was done. You won't l...

SpecBAS program almost complete

Gosh Paul that's brilliant! I typed in the listing shown at the start of the video and discovered that not only can it now rise under power but its got bloody inertia too! So I can see a bit of studying ahead of me (not tonight cos its my wife's birthday) to figure out exactly how it (it being all t...

Re: SpecBAS program under development - Link to image

https://ibb.co/jbxvpJp Okay heres the image Paul. I wish I knew how to turn a running program into a video so I could put it up on my YouTube channel and show my other friends what it looks like. Mind you, it would be hardly worth a glance were it not for your SpecBAS fractal demo that I stole that ...

SpecBAS program under development

After a tremendous amount of help from ASH-II and ZXDunny here's the moon lander program I spoke about some days ago. It's a work in progress and I cannot take credit for this because without those chaps I might never have got this far. However, its rather nice albeit short and sweet but there's mor...

Re: SpecBAS problem with manual

Thanks Paul. I've downloaded it and will see how it works out a bit later. I'm in the throes of writing at the moment to keep my readership (all 2 of them) happy! I have to mentally change gears to switch projects.

Re: Why is this in error?

So now hopefully you can see why there are lots of limitations in BASIC compared to more modern languages. Let alone compared to the (very inexact and vague) English language. And to this day, we humans still manage to continue to debate what is the best way, and hence there are differences in lang...
