answering to the question you as in http://www.hackers-edge.com/Forums/Thread76

I think that adding opcodes to make players life easier is a good move. Either that, or you also let players write code in a higher level language (C would be enough IMHO), but then you'd need libraries and compilers, and keeping everything up-to-date might not be a trivial task.

The plan is to eventually have a Hacker's Edge specific high level language. I started work on one before.

As for adding new opcodes, I completely agree with adding ones which make it easier for players. I am highly thinking of adding a MUL and DIV opcode, and doing multiplication and division is a huge pain right now.
