Hex2 is the most complex hex based language you probably would ever want to make and is the final logical conclusion of the hex0/hex1 series of languages. Extending to support multiple pointer sizes and formats as well as alignment and word oriented features and removing the single character label restriction of hex1 and enabled long label names

The prefixes for the pointers are standardized as:

  • ! - 8 bit relative address
  • @ - 16 bit relative address
  • % - 32 bit relative address
  • ~ - architecture specific relative (usually 24bits)
  • $ - 16 bit absolute address
  • & - 32 bit absolute address

Some exotic architectures with alignment and other messy details include:

  • < pad to alignment
  • . insert to word
  • ^ word aligned calculation
