Talk:Numeric Topline

Are the loops rerun like in topline or only run once if the while value of the count is true. The example program at the bottom would appear to run forever if the while value of the loop is rechecked and therefore the program would countinue to copy inputed Ascii characters forever until a null character is inputed. I didn't know whether the program was only designed to imput one character or a potential infinite. P.S. I am the inventer of topline and I am extremely pleased to see a spinoff after such a short amount of time. This will hopefully help the popularity of topline.

It repeats as long as the condition is true, so in the example program it repeats while the count is positive. The example program can input a potential infinite number of characters. P.S. Topline is also good, I like that too. And also, you might want to consider creating an account on this wiki (if you want to). --Zzo38 13:51, 16 August 2009 (UTC)

You know, even if you don't want to use shift (it isn't on the top line), you can still use ` - = from the top line. —Maharba 15:29, 28 July 2011 (UTC)
