CHANGELOG:
Assemblers:
v10.4 (24-Nov-2022) [ALL] If a value is .DEFINEd later in the same source file
than used in a pending calculation, WLA can now solve
the pending calculation before exporting it to WLALINK.
[ALL] Added .SEEDRANDOM (seeds random number generator
with current time -> random).
[ALL] Added built-in functions min(a,b), max(a,b),
random(min,max), sqrt(a), abs(a), cos(a), sin(a), tan(a),
acos(a), asin(a), atan(a), atan2(a,b), cosh(a), sinh(a),
tanh(a), log(a), log10(a), pow(a,b), sign(a) and
clamp(value,min,max).
[ALL] When a built-in function was called with a negative
sign the sign was ignored sometimes.
[ALL] Floating point values can be given to a .MACRO as
arguments and accessed via 1 etc., they are not rounded to
integers any more. Previously only named args would work
without rounding.
[ALL] When using a .FUNCTION the result was rounded to
an integer - not any more.
[ALL] .FUNCTION body can now be a single argument.
[ALL] Built-in (and .FUNCTION) arguments can now be put on
multiple lines.
[ALL] We now use ANSI C's tmpfile() to create tmp files.
This should allow multiple concurrent instances of WLA to
run in the same directory at the same time.
[ALL] When using -M, if you specify -o or -l later on the
command line you can output an object or a library file
at the same time. Disable file generation with -t.
[ALL] A calculation can be split into multiple lines if the
last symbol on the line is a '+', '-', '*'. etc.
[ALL] Unnamed .STRUCTs inside other .STRUCTs don't generate
_paddingof_* definitions any more.
[ALL] Pending calculations work now as macro arguments.
[ALL] Fixed INSTANCEOF in .ENUM when .STRUCT used SIZE
(WLA doesn't generate bytes in that case any more).
[ALL] Negating pending calculations inside parentheses inside
pending calculations ignored the sign.
[ALL] Negating calculations inside parentheses should now
work in every case.
[ALL] Dotted .INSTANCEOF works now in .ENUMs.
Linker:
v5.19 (24-Nov-2022) WLALINK turned doubles into ints too early in computing
pending calculations on some cases thus losing
precision.
