Re: IPS words



Dear Geoff,

I see that James has already pointed out that CBIT, SBIT & TBIT are indeed a
part of the basic IPS-M language.

The complete source code for IPS-MP can be found in the IPS-X directory of
the IPSDOS.ZIP file. You can see in the source everything that is included
in IPS-MP. There a number of extras in IPS-MP which are not in IPS-N or
IPS-C, particularly file handling and PC memory and I/O port handling. You
can always create your own IPS, or extend IPS-MP using a text editor, then
compile it using IPS-X. So if you need something special for a project, then
add it. This is the fun of IPS, the way you can extend the language easily.

I agree it would be nice to have one big reference guide to IPS, rather than
the collection of "the book" and various documents which extend "the book",
but there are only so many hours in the day :^(

Best Regards
Paul, VP9MU
