"a=.5" (instead of "a=0.5") not working

i think i found a bug?

omitting the 0 in decimals just isnt supported in nx

It’s my own BASIC interpreter and I never liked the “.5” format, I think it looks confusing.

I like how LowRes does that... "IF" you didn't intend to enter .5 but intended 5... that might be a hard bug for me to see and correct...

0.5 is very obvious ;)

well, as i always used "a=.5" almost since my childhood, starting to use "a=0.5" instead is hugely confusing for me! xD - so, what should i do meanwhile? use stuff like "a=5/10"? xD

Now, if you wrote the period to where it was hard to see
5 would look like 5
But 05 isnt normal at all, you want to say it is 0.5

But i see your point too ;)

.5 is nice in TI-basic where only 16 characters fit on one line of your screen, but in for NX there's plenty of space
I had to get used to it, but now I don't mind it
