I am trying to make a simple program that will look like such..

1 = \$1
2 = \$2

(and so on)

10 = \$A
------------------------------------------------
' the program i wrote is

counter VAR Word
one VAR Word
one = 1

FOR counter = 1 TO 20
DEBUG DEC one," ", HEX? one
one = one + 1
PAUSE 500
NEXT

' the outcome was

1 one = \$1

so my question is, how can i take out the "one" so i only see 1 = \$1

( the point of this program is pointless, I just want to see every number in decimal form translated to hexidecimal )

Hello,

·· Modify the code to look like this:

' {\$STAMP BS2}
' {\$PBASIC 2.5}
counter VAR Word
one VAR Word
one = 1
FOR counter = 1 TO 20
DEBUG DEC one,"=\$", HEX one, CR
one = one + 1
PAUSE 500
NEXT

·basicaly remove the question mark from the HEX formatter, and put in the equals sign and dollar sign you specified in the quotes.

And for fun you could do octal. ;)

To get the code to indicate hexidecimal, use the IHEX modifier like this:

idx··· VAR··· Byte

Main:
· FOR idx = 1 TO 20
··· DEBUG DEC idx, "·= ", IHEX idx, CR
··· PAUSE 500
· NEXT

Note that you don't need the one = one + 1 line in the program since FOR-NEXT automatically increments the control variable, and that's what's being used for output.· And since you've set a high limit of 20 with the FOR-NEXT loop, you only need a Byte.· In my opinion variable conservation should always be practiced -- even in throw-away demos.

Byte walks into a bar and orders a pint. Bartender asks him "What's wrong?"
Byte says "Parity error." Bartender nods and says "Yeah, I thought you looked a bit off."

Nick,

Did you get hit in the head with a bowling ball? (rib jab)· I know that YOU know a byte goes up to 255, a word is not needed.

Unless that was "word" as in Vanilla Ice "word" ;)
