Re: Read a pixel state?

Does the rclpixel command exist? Certainly not since it consists of 8 letters. 8-) I didn't mean literally that name of a command, but I suspect you knew that and chose to be facetious :) The more I look for a command to do what I want (read a pixel's state), the more convinced I am that such a com...

Read a pixel state?

Again, I imagine someone will want to at me, 'RTFM', but... I cannot see a command to read a pixel's state. Besides writing to a 400x240 matrix at the same time as switching pixels on individually, I cannot see how to read a pixel's state. Is there such a command? If not, a matrix of pixel data is t...

Re: Labels in the XEQ menu

Context is useful, thank you. It's a shame using a . before a global label name doesn't hide it from the list, but I guess that's where the CUSTOM menu becomes valuable. I may go back and improve the structure of some of my programs: they're becoming pretty damned messy.

Re: Labels in the XEQ menu

Mmmm, so I've a choice between cluttered code or cluttered program list. I'll favour the cluttered code over the cluttered menu.

Thanks for the information!

Re: Labels in the XEQ menu

I know numbered or single letter labels are local, so don't appear in the XEQ menu, but I'd like multi-character alpha local labels and also global labels that do not produce an XEQ menu item. Cannot figure out how.

Labels in the XEQ menu

I know someone will want to just answer here, 'RTFM', but... Labels. I've been using numbered labels within programs so that they do not appear in the XEQ menu. Named labels appear in the XEQ menu. I'd like to be able to have named callable routines that don't clog up the XEQ menu: routines that can...

Re: 82240 use?

If not, how can an image displayed on the entire screen be sent to the printer? Is there a program already that reads pixel states and sends them to the printer or does one need to be cobbled together? Such program is still to be written, knowing that the printing width is limited to 166 pixel. Int...

Re: 82240 use?

3.1) If Swiss Micros did make their own clone printer, would it be possible for it to have USB support and compatibility with the DM-41[L]?

82240 use?

I've a few questions about the use of the 82240A/B printer. 1) Is there any functional difference between the two for the DM42? 2) Can images on the entire screen (maximum resolution or otherwise) be sent to the printer? If not, how can an image displayed on the entire screen be sent to the printer?...
