We are experimenting with machine code in ThinBasic!
In the latest preview version, Eros has added functions to enable machine code to be executed within TB. To add block structured programming capability, I have generated a thinBasic module version of O2.
This has many potential uses such as speeding up programs in critical areas - processing large arrays of data etc. TB variables of all types can be linked directly to the machine code with or without O2.
Also thinking about creating an Assembler along the same lines, using the standard Intel notation. In a scripting environment, Assembler can be generated on the fly, customised for a specific task, then disposed of when finished. - like a local variable.http://community.thinbasic.com/index.php?board=149.0
