Core

Change

MOD operator deprecated. Use instead MOD function. In other terms it will not be possible anymore to do something like:

MyVar = 10 MOD 1.5   '---MOD operator

but it must be substituted by:

MyVar = MOD(10, 1.5) '---MOD function



thinAir

Improved

Code browser (invoked with [F2] key) can now be wrapped left or right with the main thinAir window. It will resize and move automatically with the main window. Very useful when dealing with complex projects.

See under thinAir configuration window under General tab specific options to wrap code browser left or right of the main window.

Add

CALL DWORD ... statement added (still experimental)


2008.02.27

Core

Improved

STRINSERT$ improved. If position is negative it is interpreted as the TokeSize. Mainly it will be possible to split MainString into single tokens of the same size inserting the new string.

Example: imagine you have a string and want to insert a comma every 3 bytes. Now you can do it in this way:

Dim MyOldString As String VALUE "123ABC456XYZ"

Dim MyNewString As String VALUE STRINSERT$(MyOldString, ",", -3)

'---MyNewString will be: '123,ABC,456,XYZ'
