If you add an offset to that number and call it, you will always call the same function.

Is this true? I guess I've never seen this before, but it would be quite nice if it is. Anyways, we need to think up a way for naming pages (our usual address method won't work here.)

Ideas? Anyways, just pile all our info into this single page for now (no point in making a bunch of pages and then having to revise stuff later.) --JasonM 10:05, 7 Jun 2005 (PDT)

I don't see a problem with creating a new 'namespace' for these, so long as there really is a semi-OS-independent way to use them. Remember, though, that they are not intended to be used by apps -- if they were, they'd be B_CALLs. And I really don't want to see programs manually garbage-collecting whenever they feel like it!

I suppose we could create a new namespace and have the page name be the offset from the beginning of the "table". I also didn't know that it was consistent between all OS versions (though I don't think we can be sure that it will stay this way in the future, even if it has been until now), but if it's consistent between all current OS versions, then I suppose it's worth documenting. Keep in mind that many of these calls mirror BCALLs, and if so, the pages should be linked. --Dan Englender 15:11, 7 Jun 2005 (PDT)
By the way, anyone got a good idea for the name of the namespace? --Dan Englender 15:54, 7 Jun 2005 (PDT)
How about 83Plus:Page0Calls? :-) Also, how sure are we that the offsets being constant is an intended design? --JasonM 19:12, 7 Jun 2005 (PDT)
The 84-Plus has different offsets. ---84plusfreak 03:37, 8 Jun 2005 (PDT)
That makes me uneasy about assumming that all 83P OS versions have (and will have) the same offsets. --Dan Englender 11:54, 8 Jun 2005 (PDT)
