    Default Alcyone Notepad

    Ta-da! Yet another application for my OS.

    This time it's a program that acts just like a regular notepad. You can use enter, backspace and arrows, lines aren't limited to 30 chars, it automatically scrolls when it needs to. A few screenshots are below:

    Two lines, one doesn't fit on the screen:


    Second line scrolled:


    Saving the file:


    Using it is pretty intuitive. The footer shows keys that can be used to open/save file and exit the program. The only remark that has to be made is that file names have to begin with "/", for example you want to open test.txt, you write "/test.txt" as filename.

    Code (pretty messy ) is in the attachment.

    And thus Alcyone is one step closer to world domination.

    Actually, no. Alcyone is already #1 OS in gmod by the number of features available for end user

    You could, but you wouldn't get anything readable, as they are in machine code. It would be similar to editing an .exe file in Windows.

    I did this notepad for a reason though, I wanted to have an editor, with which I could create script files to be interpreted by another app. This is my next goal: an interpreter functioning under Alcyone. It should be quite easy to do, because I already have a calculator, and it's already almost an interpreter.

    I'd suggest making a compiler rather than interpreter, since that way new programs won't suffer from another layer of emulation and consequent slowdown. With all the API documented off course. Then new programs will be popping up in wire servers like mushrooms.

    An assembler would be much simpler to code but since you already have what's necessary from the calculator, why not make a step forward

    An interpreter would be much easier to me than a compiler. Mostly it's because generating machine code from a set of instructions is much more complicated than simply invoking appropriate functions. I could write something that compiles to assembly (maybe ), but: 1) we have ZC for that, 2) I would need an assembler too to make it independent of the Wire CPU tool. It would be hard and quite unnecessary, as we have both a compiler and assembler already, only they are "outside" tools.

    Oh, right, I forgot we ZC. Hmm, an intepreter, something like the Python console, would be pretty fun to make simple scripts and test them on the fly.
