Structured Text
« on: March 12, 2020, 11:32:18 AM »
Which version of  Do More or DirectSoft  Designer software  support other programming languages  apart from Ladder Logic. I am using Do More Designer version 2.6.
Is there any version which supports Structured Text, Instructions List?

Sorry, no.

Stage is a rudimentary SFC implemented via Ladder Logic.  A "Stage" is a "Step".  It supports simple/complex  branching, with built-in support for ALL of the device "fully asynchronous" instructions.  Also diverging and converging concepts of SFC.

Designer and DirectSOFT both support IMPORT/EXPORT of mnemonic (Instruction List) via a Text file.  But Instruction List editing is not natively supported.

Not formally, but you can get there if you want to bad enough.  (I guess that's where the "natively" part comes in) And I'm not being theoretical or pedantic, I actually used to do that with AB (before subroutines, when you'd repeat the same logic 100 times in a program).  Export the monics, and make 100 edited copies manually in spreadsheet or wp, then import.  I even did VBA to automate it if large.
I retract my earlier statement that half of all politicians are crooks.  Half of all politicians are NOT crooks.  There.

Exactly.
