For example, the statement
I = 3 => Goto 5would be handled as follows:
Pre-cfx-9x50s cfx-9x50s I = 3 => Goto 5 I = 3 => Goto 5 (I) = (3) => (Goto 5) (I = 3) => (Goto 5) (Goto 5) (1) => (Goto 5) (Goto 5)
The difference is that on older calcs the relative comparison operators (=, <, >, <=, >=, <>) were considered to be syntactic breakpoints, part of the conditional statement format. To test whether or not to carry out the Goto 5 they simply tested whether I = 3.
On cfx-9x50s though, every expression which includes a relative comparison operator is assigned a value of either 0 or 1 when it is evaluated (0 = FALSE, 1 = TRUE). A condition is then carried out as long as the entire expression which precedes the => is non-zero. So on a cfx-9x50, this is legal code:
123.456 => "WIBBLE"
For example, this code
X = 3 => 20 -> Y X <> 3 => 50 -> Ycan be converted to
50 - 30(X=3) -> Y
You can also put a number of boolean expressions together. For example, instead of using
If ((X > 30) And (Y < 20)) Then Y + 27 -> Y IfEnd
you can use
Y + 27(X > 30)(Y < 20) -> Y
You can shorten expressions by using the logical similarities between " And " and " Or " and multiplication and addition.
For example, instead of:
((X = 1) And (X-3 > B)) Or (Y=2) => Goto 5
you can use
(X = 1)(X-3 > B) + (Y = 2) => Goto 5
