LaFac stands for aldweb's LAnguage FACtory for Palm.
LaFac is a development tool which works directly from your Palm device.
LaFac comes with a p-code compiler for all 4 available development languages (one loop p-code compilers), a p-code runtime engine, a debugger, and a Stand-alone application builder.
LaFac currently comes with 4 inbuilt development languages:
1. Hellish & Esoteric Language for Palm = HELP (my invention)
2. micro BASic = µBAS
3. micro PAScal = µPAS
4. micro C = µC


Updates Description

v1.2 (11/17/06)
- FIX: if the last line of a source code was a comment without a final line feed, compilation would sometimes return a syntax error
- FIX: the number shown in the Runtime Option (Break every n instructions) would sometimes be filled with strange random characters instead of a number although the value hold by the application was OK
- ADD: High Resolution icons; this is a very kind contribution from Mike Featherstone (better late than never, Mike sent me these nice icons more than one year ago!); Thank you Mike
- ADD: various source code optimisations in the µBAS, µPAS and µC compilers
- ADD: explanations about the 2nd and 3rd parameters for MID$ (µBAS), SubString (µPAS) and SubStr (µC) functions in this help file (3rd parameter is endPosition and not NumberOfCharacters as it is more often the case for these languages)
- ADD: some information in this Help file to explain that LaFac was a proof of concept for a much more sophisticated compiler, iziBasic, which I developed afterwards
- Changed Donation URL (even though nobody ever donated for this freeware...)

v1.1 (07/22/04)
- FIX: if the user did not make a selection in popup list then a bad name string or an empty string was displayed in the popup instead of the previous selected item
- FIX: LaFac did not handle correctly instructions line > 63 characters in µBAS, µPAS and µC
- FIX: the data entry field could stay stuck in Numeric entry when asking for Text entry
- DEL: removed the CallCS / PeekCS / PokeCS / PeekNS / PokeNS / PeekTS / PokeTS functions which were of very little interest in LaFac
- ADD: LaFac can now work with the new Memos application introduced in PalmOS 5.2.8?, PMem/DATA creator/type (thanks Farcaller)
- ADD: Time format is now HH:mm:ss (was HH:mm)
- ADD: changed IntToString(popN) to RealToString(popN,number of decimals)
- ADD: various source code optimisations in the compilers

1.0 (06/05/04)
- initial release

Hello,

In HELP: ?a
In µBas: INPUT A$
In µPas: READ(cA);
In µC: GETS(cA);

Cheers,

This is an awesome program (I will buy iziBasic when I can afford it) but I have a problem, how can I input text?

I can input numbers easy but can not figure out how to input a text string...(None of the samples shows this)  any help would be appreciated

And here the second. It converts decimals to human-readable binaries...

***
'dez2bin.mbas

getNum:
PRINT "Enter a Number (max. 16'777'215):"
INPUT N
PRINT N USING 0;
IF N>16777215 PRINT " is TO HIGHT!" : GOSUB getNum
RETURN

transform:
X=8388608
A=0
WHILE X>=1
Y=0
IF N>=X Y=1 : N=N-X
PRINT Y USING 0;
X=X/2
INC A
IF A=4 PRINT " ";
IF A=8 PRINT " ";
IF A=12 PRINT " ";
IF A=16 PRINT " ";
IF A=20 PRINT " ";
WEND
RETURN

BEGIN
GOSUB getNum
PRINT " in decimal is in binary:"
T=TICKS
GOSUB transform
R=TICKS-T/TICKSPERSEC
PRINT
PRINT R USING 2;
PRINT " seconds needed to transform"
END

Here my first script in mbas. Its a simple chronometer for sport-trainers ;)

***

'first9.mbas
BEGIN
CLS
PRINT "hit 'Enter' for START"
PRINT "and hit 'Enter' each time for STOPP"
A=1
WAIT
T=TICKS
CLS
PRINT " RUN !"
WHILE A<=9
WAIT
S=TICKS-T/TICKSPERSEC
PRINT A USING 0;
PRINT ") ";
H=0
WHILE S>3599
INC H
S=S-3600
WEND
M=0
WHILE S>59
INC M
S=S-60
WEND
PRINT H USING 0;
PRINT " h ";
PRINT M USING 0;
PRINT " m ";
PRINT S USING 2;
PRINT " s "
INC A
WEND
END
