Re: Number Trick

@CoderJeff Your code works... And it also sometimes compresses a few bits.. With 10 bytes input , it sometimes outputs 9.35 to 9.75 bytes... But the important part is , the output matches the input... screen 19 '' source string is a sequence of characters, each 0 to 255 '' we can optionally pass in ...

Re: Number Trick

@CoderJeff I'm working on character strings , each character being ASCII 0 to 255.. So: If you have chr( 255 ) + chr( 255 ) and divide by 2 , you get chr( 127 ) + chr( 132 ) How do you double the chr( 127 ) + chr( 132 ) , to get chr( 255 ) + chr( 255 ) back ?? Your above code is so cryptic , i can't...

Re: Star Wars "Light Saber"

@badidea The individual protons and neutrons have orbitals in various elevations of orbits around each proton and neutron.. If the size of the nucleus exceeds the innermost orbits of those orbitals. The orbitals will strike against the protons and neutrons and maybe force them out of the nucleus.. (...

Re: INSTR()

@StoneMonkey

I'm working on strings of ASCII chrs()

I need to skip over all the leading chr( 0 )'s..

The string might be a megabyte.. and as it divides by 2 , new chr( 0 )'s crop up in front..

Re: INSTR()

@jj2007 Can't you do something like instr( 1 , ANY ? ) How would you use the ANY function?? Is it possible.. There has to be a faster way , than looping to find the first non-zero place , or to skip over the leading zeros.. I need to do something like: string = "0000023567" place = instr( ...

INSTR()

If i have a string that starts with a bunch of "0"'s
How do you use INSTR() to find the first non-zero value?

@angros47

I said , the lasers would converge at a point away....30 or 40 inch convergence..

So they are not exactly parallel... They come together... so their at an angle to each other..

@Dodicat Hello Dodicat... I modified your Halfer , and got it returning correct chr() outputs... Now i need a "Doubler" to undo the Halfer... Can you work your magic and conjure up a Doubler ??? Here's your modified "Halfer" The point_5 var , holds the 1 or 0 if the end results i...

Re: Star Wars "Light Saber"

Without the telescoping rod at the center..

You couldn't have sword battles.. The lasers would go through each other..

Unless you could somehow magnetize the laser.. Then the magnetic repulsion , would allow for sword battles..

Re: Star Wars "Light Saber"

I wonder what happens when you shine two lasers together , at a point away?? When the two parallel lasers come together , they might diffuse?? So the "Light Saber" might not need a telescoping rod to hold the reflecting end cap.. Maybe , you could just use multiple lasers and beam splitter...

Re: Star Wars "Light Saber"

I wonder if it's possible to create a ring laser crystal , instead of a beam laser crystal.

So when the crystal starts lasing , it lases all around the ring. Creating a ring of laser instead of a beam...

Maybe you could use beam splitters to get the ring laser , instead of mirrors...
