Any day now.  As in, as soon as I get a few hours to package it.  It's pretty much ready, but I've been incapacitated for the last 10 days or so :(

Just to keep the information flowing until this release is ready, I'm posting the complete list of changes here.  As always, questions welcome.

TWX PROXY v2.04 Changes

Program:

* INTERPRETER: The 'OPENMENU' command was modified in v2.03, but not completed
  properly.  It now accepts an optional 2nd parameter, 'TRUE' or 'FALSE',
  telling it to pause or not. (E.g. 'openMenu TWX_SHOWSPECIALPORT FALSE')

* INTERPRETER: Corrected 'SETSECTORPARAMETER' value length.  Corrected to accept
  a value 40 characters long.

* DATABASE: Fixed an issue where 'SETSECTORPARAMETER' sector values were being
  erased when that sector was revisited or redisplayed.

* INTERFACE: Changed the font used in Script Windows to Lucida Console.

* INTERFACE: Changed Script Windows so that they are now resizable using the
  mouse.

* INTERPRETER/COMPILER: Added new command 'ReadToArray'.  This overcomes the
  severe performance penalty encountered when reading in text files with many
  lines (E.g. 20,000).  <Syntax: readToArray Filename $arrayName>

* INTERPRETER/COMPILER: Added new System Constants, 'RYLOS' and 'ALPHACENTAURI'.

* INTERPRETER/COMPILER: Added new System Constant, 'CURRENTSECTOR', which
  returns the current sector as last seen at the Command or Computer Command
  lines.

* INTERPRETER/COMPILER: Corrected improper rounding of floating point numbers
  when Precision is set to zero.  Add, Subtract, Multiply, Divide, and Round now
  truncate results when Precision is set to zero.

* INTERPRETER: Added parsing of Fighter Refresh (thanks to help from Tweety).
  Fighter info is now updated from a fig refresh.  N.B. Precise data will be
  replaced by rounded data for sectors with large numbers of figs (E.g. 20,475
  replaced by 20,000).

* INTERPRETER: Added parsing of Port data, as seen when Docking, and from the
  Computer menu's Port Report, even for ports not in the current sector.

* INTERPRETER: Added new command, 'GetTimer'.  <Syntax: getTimer $ticks>  This
  returns the number of ticks (or Hertz) since the CPU was powered on.  The
  difference between a starting value and ending value should be divided by the
  hertz (Hz) of the CPU (E.g. 2,200,000,000 for a 2.2 GHz CPU).  The result is a
  time measurement accurate to a few microSeconds (10^-6).

* INTERPRETER: Stardock's sector info is now captured from the V-Screen.

* INTERPRETER: Changed 'CURRENTANSILINE' so that it includes the Carriage Return
  (#13) at the end.

* IMPORT/EXPORT: Added additional checks to avoid program errors on
  Import/Export caused by blank port data.

* IMPORT: changed import function for warp data, so warps aren't lost just
  because imported sector has a more recent timestamp.


Scripts/Subs:

* Pack2 Scripts: Both the 2_* files and their includes have been left in their
  uncompiled, unencrypted forms.

* Pack2 Scripts: Removed or Remarked the calls to sys_check, so no attempt to
  verify the registration is made.

I've sent out to a couple testers what I believe is final code for this build.  If I hear of no major problems, then I'll release it publicly sometime this weekend.

Yea!

Great to hear. Thanks for all your time you put into it EP. I bet you got a few gray hairs trying to figer it out. :)
It's nice to have people like you in the community. Same goes to you Traitor your scripts are some of the best out there,
there are alot more out there also so don't get mad if i didn't put your name down. But without guys like yous i think there
would be alot less people playing TW. Keep up the good work guys.

Heh, thanks DF.  We're motivated by appreciation like that.  Keep up the thanks, and we'll keep up the hard work.
