View Full Version : will this put var1 into var2?

Does the following put the value 8 into var2?
var1 long 8
var2 long var1
I don't think so, cause it isn't working http://forums.parallax.com/images/smilies/smile.gif
Any idea's how I could do something like this, without using SPIN or asm to copy the values?

var2 long 8
This points both var1 and var2 to the same address.... This is handy for aliasing variables

But not exactly what I mean.
I'll explain further.
I'd like to write a pattern like this:
pattern long var4, var2, var3, var1
Or in a different order if necessary. The values of var1..4 are not logical, so hard to write a long sequence when you've got to paste the real value each time.
Is there a way like (or similar) to what I mean?

Have you tried using constants for what you're trying to do?

Aaah, thats it!
I didn't think about using constants at all.
That answers my question, thanks Ken!
