@neauoire could you help me understand the convention here? https://git.sr.ht/~rabbits/uxn/tree/main/item/projects/examples/demos/snake.tal#L4 why 8// and 8** instead of 8/ and 8* ?
but i think the intent was to convey that the operators worked on two bytes (16-bit values). so 8* would be the 8-bit version and 8** would be the 16-bit version.
(i never used this myself.)
I stopped short of removing these "8//" macros because I thought they might be more easily understood than "#03 SFT2", but maybe the latter is the clearest after all?
@alderwick @neauoire @d6 Interesting! I am playing around with a forth that targets uxn and wondering what conventions to bring over. thanks! https://git.alexwennerberg.com/uf-toys/file/snake.fs.html
Revel in the marvels of the universe. We are a collective of forward-thinking individuals who strive to better ourselves and our surroundings through constant creation. We express ourselves through music, art, games, and writing. We also put great value in play. A warm welcome to any like-minded people who feel these ideals resonate with them.
