Maths (Geometry): SPS3

Name: SPS3 [View in context] Type: Subroutine Category: Maths (Geometry) Summary: Copy a space coordinate from the K% block into K3
Copy one of the planet's coordinates into the corresponding location in the temporary variable K3. The high byte and absolute value of the sign byte are copied into the first two K3 bytes, and the sign of the sign byte is copied into the highest K3 byte. The comments below are written for the x-coordinate. Arguments: X Determines which coordinate to copy, and to where: * X = 0 copies (x_sign, x_hi) into K3(2 1 0) * X = 3 copies (y_sign, y_hi) into K3(5 4 3) * X = 6 copies (z_sign, z_hi) into K3(8 7 6)
