(For some reason I cannot change the subject when replying to a previous thread, so I started a new one.)


I have updated the STAKMATH module for ASM8 to include an expression parser set of macros.  You need the latest ASM8 v8.80


This allows you to write an expression like the one below, and it will be converted to the appropriate macro calls.

For example: @Eval32 Ans=123*(N1+N2)/(N1-N2)-5

will result in the following sequence.



Expr: Ans=123*(N1+N2)/(N1-N2)-5


Load32 #5

Load32 N2

Load32 N1


Load32 N2

Load32 N1


Load32 #123




Save32 Ans


You can use nested parentheses, spaces between operands/operators, and the assignment variable is optional.  If not used, the result will remain on top-of-stack.  Numeric constants are recognized automatically, while named constants must be given as #CONSTANT

You can also use SP-based variables (in #SPAUTO mode).

Hope you like it.  (If you find errors in parsing, please let me know.)
