  • improved memory allocation for arrays [0..0], 'ABSOLUTE $0000' is enforced initially, 1 byte of memory is saved
  • added possibility to declare arrays without specifying their size, e.g.:

var tab: array of byte = [1,3,4,3,1];
var tb: array of char = 'abcdefghij';

  • new compiler directive {$bin2csv filename} allows you to initialize arrays e.g.:

var tb: array of byte = [ {$bin2csv filename} ];

  • new compiler directive {$optimization loopunroll}, {$optimization noloopunroll}, performs FOR loop unrolling with fixed parameters
  • new BLOWFISH module allowing to encrypt, decrypt character strings according to specified key
  • new example a8\AES-Rijndeal

Mad Pascal 1.6.8

  • resignation of type expansion for expressions from SHR

  • new SAPR resource type, SAPRPLAY

  • for RMTPLAY, as the second parameter you can specify the address for variables on the zero page

  • SizeOfResource(variable, name)

  • unit SAPLZSS

  • unit SHANTI

  • unit SHA1

  • unit xSFX

  • unit SYSTEM: NtoBE, RorByte, RorWord, RorDWord, RolByte, RolWord, RolDWord, SarShortint, SarSmallint, SarLongint

  • possibility to instantiate an array of CHAR type by STRING (if string is shorter spaces will be inserted), e.g:

    tab: array [0..15] of char = '0123456789ABCDEF';

  • fixed passing function values through arrays

  • added support for VBLKI interrupts (immediate) via SetIntVec, GetIntVec (

  • rewritten compiler code for mod separable modules

  • rewritten code for handling arrays with pointers to records 'tab: array [0..x] of record^'

  • added optimization 'Common head/tail Sequence coalescing'

    [volatile] vcount: byte absolute $d40b;
  • added support for macros {$define label (parameters) := expression}
  • added 'FOR element IN array' construction for arrays not exceeding 256 bytes
  • more free memory on the zero page, FXPTR, PSPTR pointers are now allocated depending on whether they are used

Choose a tag to compare
  • rewritten handling of CASE OF
  • rewritten code optimization for arrays not exceeding 256 bytes
  • optimization for conditions '>', '<='
  • added memory allocation for STRING-type arrays (so far only the pointer was put away, it worked like 'array of ^string')
  • new platform added, Commodore C4 Plus
  • unit GRAPHICS: procedure Font(charset: pointer);
  • unit MISC, RMT, CMC, MPT: DetectAntic
  • unit SYSTEM revised to include ATARI, C64, C4Plus platforms
  • unit ZX0
  • unit HCM2
  • added support of $resource (RCDATA, RCASM) for C64, C4Plus platforms, resources are sorted by ascending addresses
  • extended RCDATA resource with possibility to specify ofset for read file
  • added support for Pascal compliant syntax for ASM block, no { } brackets required
  • added new directive {$codealign proc = value}, {$codealign loop = value} allowing to align generated code

  • new CRC unit: function crc32(crc: cardinal; buf: Pbyte; len: word)
