In other languages there is a distinct tense for subjunctive, such as French. In fact there are four in French. These are dedicated verb forms. They are special and specific.
In English the best we can achieve is a mood, a suggestion. We dont have distinct verb forms. What you suggest, the use of the plural form as a subjunctive for the singular, is a hack. It smacks of 18th century elocution, the same people who said you cant split an infinitive, and that hanged and hung have specific applications (they dont, they are just strong and weak forms of the past tense, like weaved and wove, dived and dove).
So I'm just lounging around and I figured I'd share what I'm working on with all of you.
The above link is a super efficient and low-profile batch file that can do dozenal (twelve base) math. It looks at all numbers as FOUR groups of THREES. So it's a ternary calculator in a way. As of now it only adds 2 single digit numbers. I'll add more digits to each number later. However, it does not use the CPU's hardware arithmetic. It's done 100% in software, hence the need for more lines of code as you can see. I made this batch file to test a hardware design I'm working on.
The key number pin-out and associations take up quite a bit of space, but the math logic itself is under 30 lines of code I think. The idea is that each line of code for the math logic sections of the file would equate to roughly 27-30 transistors. I believe I can get it down to 24. However, if this logical system was made with HARDWARE, the cost of build/cost per hour efficiency would be ridiculous. Full adders generally use 85 transistors just to add 15 + 15 = 30. Mine can count to 23 (24 with normal counting) and it will (eventually) use a mere 24 transistors.
The calculator does not use zeros. Read the instructions in the batch to figure out how it actually does math.
Anyways, i would like to spread my ideas about this. I think this can change the future of computer hardware as well as programming. Simplified binary logic could really be a game changer. I am now in the process of programming a simple assembly coded operating system using TERNARY TREE logic. But not just for searches, for everything the OS will do. What do you think?
Any questions or suggestions would be much appreciated.
