I was just wondering what is considered a command. Is:

if a = 1 or b = 2

two commands? or just one? Is a command anything that is between two ":"'s?

hmm.. I think there is only one command : a condition... But I'm far not sure of it.
another similar question would be how many commands are there in "rgb(rnd(255), rnd(255), rnd(255))". I usually count is as four commands, but who knows ?

How many commands would this be considered?:

I'd say four. I see a command as a word or combination that makes the computer do or check something.

so,you could have 10,000 endif's in a 20 liner, and 25 "actions" and it would be legal?

See, I'm trying to make a program for this compotition, but I don't know what should be put on a single line.

With the 20 liner a line is a line with code on it, any code. The best thing you can do is stack anything and everything possible, like all you startup stuff; sync on:hide mouse:sync rate 30 or whatever.

I would be impressed if you managed to fit 10000 endifs in twenty lines along with the rest of your code

I wonder if we can get the commands that return a value excluded from the command limit. So commands like rgb(), rnd() or timer will be ignored in the count.

I mean, look at the box command. Every time I use it, I use four rgb commands, and sometimes screen width() and screen height() too. That's alot of commands for one gradient box!

Aura! Have you learnt nothing!

You need to code wize, my young padwan.

Things such as declaring a variable equal to Screen width() ensures you only use it once, and use Ink instead of four RGB commands!

Think about it... that's what the challenge is all about!

It's degrading for boxes to use so few a command between their brackets. They have rights too you know.

Rights for boxes!

Interestingly when we were young, we were taught that there are differences between commands, (internal) functions, and statements (well, and directives). So from that background, the line

would contain 1 command, namely "sleep". "If/Endif" would be a statement block, "end" a statement, "object exist()" and "keystate()" would be internal functions.

Apperantly these days it's all a bit blurred.


Edit: got it a bit mixed up. Well it's early.

i count it as one complete code statement.
any thing that can't be on the same line as something
else unless there is a ':' between it, because the compiler
would give an error.

if x=1 inc x endif
simply wouldn't work.
if x=1
inc x
endif
or
if x=1:inc x:endif
both work, and both count as 3 commands.
