The Sortron is an advanced, computer-controlled version of the sorting machine. It can be connected adjacent to an inventory or inline in a tube system, allowing you to select what is pulled from it or what it will allow to pass through it respectively. It is controlled from a Redpower computer and requires blutricity to function.

Unlike the Manager the Sortron can only filter one item type at a time and cannot accept items from its output side to supply an inventory.

Forth WordsEdit

A number of Forth words are available to control the Sortron, to use these you will need to boot your computer using an Extended Forth Disk.


Tube inputEdit

SORTINCOL! / SORTINCOL@Edit

Sets/gets what colour items the Sortron will accept from tubes. Setting this to 0 will accept any colour.

> 2 SORTINCOL! ( Sortron will only accept orange-coloured items )
SORTPAT! / SORTPAT@Edit

Sets/gets the item hash that needs to be matched for the item to be accepted from tubes (The hash of an item can be found with the SORTSLOT@ word). Only a single item hash can be accepted at a time, however setting this to 0 0 will allow any item to pass.

> 28677 -24831 SORTPAT! ( Only accept sandstone )
SORTMATCHEdit

Accept a specific number of items that match the patterns given by SORTPAT@ and SORTINCOL@. The number of items to accept is taken from the stack.

> 2 SORTINCOL! 28677 -24831 SORTPAT! 2 SORTMATCH ( Sortron will accept 2
                                                   orange-coloured sandstone )

Low-level functionsEdit

SORTCMDEdit

A low-level function to interrogate the Sortron. It takes a single value from the stack which corresponds to a sortron instruction. Arguments and outputs need to be written to the memory after address RP0. More information is available at the Redpower wiki

> 4 RBP! 1 SORTCMD RP0 2 + @ CR . ( Print the number of inventory slots 
                                    in the sortron at bus id 4)
27
SORTADDREdit

A variable containing the bus id of the current Sortron. By default Sortrons have a bus id of 4, if multiple Sortrons are connected to a single CPU you can select between them by changing this variable.

> 4 SORTADDR ! ( Set the bus id for sortrons to 4 )

> SORTADDR @ CR . ( Print the current bus id )
