I have a little time to add TWX features, so let me see your top feature requests for TWX. Feel free to repeat another's request (giving it more weight), and also feel free to be vague if you don't exactly know what you want, but see a need in a certain area. I'll start:

1. Add a getNearestWarpsIn command.
2. Enable a way to escape during a LONG variable dump.
3. Enable a way to escape from a runaway loop (where I forgot to do "add $i 1")
4. Make a quick way to convert between timestamp and datetime values
5. Make a way to return from getNearestWarps upon meeting some search criteria.

+EP+

Convert the project files so it'll build in the Lazarus IDE. :lol:

Yeah, I've tried this before, but there are too many dependencies on the VCL. However, I'll likely port the code (slowly) to the upcoming version of Delphi XE2, which should allow it to compile for Win 32 & 64 bit, Linux, Mac OS and IOS ;)

Still no free IDE though.

They're still putting out new versions of Delphi? I thought Pascal was completely dead.

It would be nice to have a trim spaces command, so if we are grabbing a field it takes out all leading and trailing spaces.

Yes, Delphi is very actively developed.

V'Ger, how about: striptext $field " "
That removes all spaces all together, though not just from the end/beginning.

A strip leading and trailing spaces command would be great.. often you need to keep the spaces in the middle... there is a way (or 2) to program around it, but a TRIML and a TRIMT command would make it easier and more streamlined.

That would not work for me. It is not unusual for me to write a script that will need to parse user data (typically the login name), and some of those users may have a space in their name.

Why don't you just write a little procedure for it?

No it's good feedback, and probably trivial to write. What else?

At the moment if you save an array to the config file you end up with variables named 1= 2= 3= etc... This means you can effectively only save 1 array.. i wonder if the variable name could be saved as well.. perhaps:

myarray[1]=
myarray[2]=
myarray[3]=

etc...

Also.. The ROUND command works differently when using the win7 version of TWX. Perhaps a ROUNDUP command and/or ROUNDDOWN command would be useful.

I like all those ideas ..

strip leading spaces , trailing spaces , Arrays being named in cfg file
rounding up and round down .. plus the command round left in just cause it will remain back words compatible.

I wish I could think of anything else ..
but I will keep at it .

You'll probably be sorry i saw this thread lol... but here we go again..

I would like a solution that allows 1 script to know when another script has been run. (obviously not run by the 1st script).
This would solve some issues i am having with my bot.

Also.. :-D

an in-line function ability.. for instance..

Function Square ($x)
SetVar $square ($x * $x)
Return

Then you would call this using..

SetVar $myvar $square (5)

which would set the value of $myvar to 25

The beauty of this is that you can create your own functions... basically making the TWX language extensible.
This is similar to what was available in the old QuickBasic language.
Probably too much too ask but it's just a suggestion..
