Built-in Commands
The following commands are built directly into the compiler and serve mostly as syntactic sugar.

Increments the first parameter by the second one. The first parameter is a variable.
Inc($IntVariable, $Value)
=
$IntVariable += $Value
The second parameter is equal to 1 if isn't specified.
Since the version 3.06 it's possible to use the ++ operator that can be applied to variables and increments their value by one.
$var++
=
$var += 1

Decrements the first parameter by the second one. The first parameter is a variable.
Dec($IntVariable, $Value)
=
$IntVariable -= $Value
The second parameter is equal to 1 if isn't specified.
Since the version 3.06 it's possible to use the -- operator that can be applied to variables and decrements their value by one.
$var--
=
$var -= 1

Multiplies the first parameter by the second one. The first parameter is a variable.
Mul($IntVariable, $Value)
=
$IntVariable = $IntVariable * $Value
The second parameter is equal to 2 if isn't specified.

Divides the first parameter by the second one. The first parameter is a variable.
Div($IntVariable, $Value)
=
$IntVariable = $IntVariable / $Value
The second parameter is equal to 2 if isn't specified.

This function sets the offset of a global variable at the global variable space that exists in the beginning of the main.scm header.
It's only meaningful for custom variables (e.g. $text) not defined in the CustomVariables.ini. DMA-variables always get their offset based on the number in their names, e.g the variable $40 always occupies four bytes at the offset 160 (40*4).
The first parameter must be a global variable, the second parameter must be a positive integer number or zero.
Alloc($MyVar, 40) - the variable $MyVar will be compiled as $40

Multiplies the variable by itself.
sqr($var)
=
$var *= $var
The variable type has to be declared.

This function generates a random number within the specified range.
$rnd = random(1, $high)
This function can be used for both integer and floating-point variables. The opcode is selected based on the type of the result variable ($rnd in this example).
