The most obvious and consistent syntax would be to have something like: > mfx EP 2,3,4 3.1,0,0.1 But what about decrement/increment operations? Would it be tedious to ammend the grammar so that: > mfx EP 2,3,4 3.1,0,+ 0.1 ...works? I assume spaces are reserved as argument separators. While we're on that topic, I never really liked that way of expressing inc/dec operations, though we stuck with it for historical reasons (and it's really not the end of the worls). I think +=, -=, etc. would be more intuitive and faster to type, as they are located close to one another on the keyboard. Then one could do: > mfx EP 2,3,4 3.1,0,+=0.1 ...solving the space issue. Anyway, just thinking aloud... Hope everyone is well. Cheers, S.M.
