the formula you see above is for calculations without latitude. Similar to the one written by Ed.
I wrote another one with the calculation of the promissory at the same latitude of significatore used by Argoli.
I also integrated the calculation of the degree of passage of the earth.
The results are the same as with other famous software.
For me (my opinion) they work badly, the results are overestimated, although I wrote the routines,
I don't use them.

difficult example in Italian, even more so in English.
I take a theme at random,

Cambi, Livio D.:14/06/1885 T.:07:00:00 A.:+00.832 RMT Lat.:43n36 Long.:13e31 Place:Ancona,Italy,Europe/Rome

I have this subject, born in Ancona on 14/06/1885 at 07:00:00 Delta +00.832 RMT <<<<< ZONES

I compose the string with the data for Ancona
strset(s, "Ancona, Italy, 13e31, 43n36,Europe/Rome") .
and with the sethoroscopeplace() command, I transfer the data to enter the place,
as well as the jd, and everything else needed.

I confirm and register the theme in planetdance.

a) If i go in planetdance, and review with edit, i call up the city and save.
   I call up the theme from code, with the strcmd(30, 0, s) procedure, I get this string back with correct zones 'RMT'.

Cambi, Livio D.:14/06/1885 T.:07:00:00 A.:+00.832 RMT Lat.:43n36 Long.:13e31 Place:Ancona,Italy,Europe/Rome

(b) I don't use getplace().
   It seems that it is not possible to assign the 'zones' correctly, because the command strcmd(30, 0, s); contains 0,
and so I do not get 'RMT' but have to write a generic TZ.
I was thinking of introdding TZCODE separately by reading the state capital.
I found an example in ImportAndroid.ab at line 66, where you mention tzcode
if (tzcode < 0 || tzcode > 415)
Tell me if the example is clear to you and if there may be a solution.

Hey Jean,
With the string strset(s, "%s, %s, %s,%s",place,nation,lonstr,latstr,capital);
and with the command sethoroscopeplace(), I transfer the data to enter the place.

With the command strcmd(30, 0, s);I extract the exact time zone of the place.
Unfortunately, it only works if i resume the theme and confirm the place via getplace()

In dos for a program done in the past, I used to read INTNDX.BIN with a call.
I see that you also get from tz.bin but I don't know how to do it in pd.

Can you tell me how can I get the right tzone value ? 0-415 ?

strset(s, "%s, %s, %s,%s",place,nation,lonstr,latstr,tzcode);
ex: strset(s, "Santo Stefano Belbo, Italy, 8e14, 44n42,346");

and immediately have the right zone location (CST,EDT or CWT etc) in the output.

Perhaps a list of tzcodes and continent/capital would suffice ?

Hi Jean,
I am not sure if you received my email from,
sent today, can you check?
Thank you

The third parameter is accepted only if it is numeric.
If I understand correctly, in the string s, I should enter the desired font.
Can you explain the command better? Thank you

Yes, that's a design error. I have used part of the font to display astro symbols in stead of diacritics.
i'm not sure what to do about it

Hi, Jean,
Could you generate in astrobasic a new command like 'text'
but that does not change the diacritical characters?

Hi Jean,
We were asked to remedy the limited space that planetdance reserved for notes. Here we have the possibility of linking a sequential file of 8k characters, which is amply sufficient for biographical notes. Changing the .bio file while using planetdance, gave memory occupation errors. We could not find a command that would reset it completely, so we preferred to relaunch planetdance during the betatest.
Even in some routines with strlist( I had errors and solved them with the classic write-read commands, the execution times seemed similar.
I have modified the programme bio and sent it to you.
If anything is not clear to you, please let me know.

Sorry for the bad translation, Google Translator.

Hi Jean, I'm sending you the bio file I created.
Do you remember when I asked you for an explanation for the strange characters in TEXT(?
I like to have your opinion so that I can aggregate it into the initial functions.

I developed it by sharing it with Roberto Scerni and our Italian community. I started developing it in June and have been sharing it for testing since September.
It works like this:
The starting theme in PD is searched for among the themes recorded in the bio file, and if present it is displayed.
It is possible to update and integrate the data with Update, even with copy/paste, be careful not to modify the values ​​of the first four lines,
essential for data portability.
>>>>> Rename planetdance.jpg to .bio
maybe we can improve it, do you have any advice?

The module operates with normal Boolean filters OR or AND, and the search can be carried out on the name, on the notes and mixed (name and notes)
entering up to 20 keys divided by '+'.
Distinguishes between strings (parts of words) and whole words, with a maximum limit of 10,000 inline themes.

You can enter up to approximately 8000 characters for each bio.
Each note includes all the data needed to store the theme itself in planetdance.

The search can be carried out taking into account all planetdance .db files (select the Search.all.db option), saving them in a single biographical file,
or export your search results by creating a new .bio and .pd file titled as you like with the export option.

Astrobasic / Text() command Transform é into a Node

Hi Jean,
I include Napoléon Bonaparte's theme.

In the view on the right, the Text function prints the name incorrectly.
Transform the é into a Node.
It's not a big deal...
Would you know how to correct this visual anomaly?

the strlist function is very powerful, but I didn't know about it.
You are great!! good weekend ;D ;D ;D

ok Jean here an example. In the first file I have many Julius Caesars, in the second I would like to compact.
Using two sequential files do you think there is a solution?
Please rename livio.jpg
