Changes: Programming Style vs actual differences
Some of the v4.32 diffences are more internal 6502 programming style rather than bugfixes or additions. A rationale needs to be set, otherwise you could end up with a list of 16384 changes, one for each byte in the ROM. User:Jgharston
- Yes, you're probably correct, as some of the differences are rather minor. However, even just swapping the data type checks for String and Float in expression evaluation, so that Float is tested for and processed before string, makes a difference, and will result in programs that use Floats running slightly faster than in BASIC 4. So, I think it is an actual difference that requires documentation. The big question is how to document such changes.
- Maybe, instead of having sections for the *, -, / and + operators, we could just summarize the changes under a expression evaluation section?
