Two suggestions

I have two suggestions about Sanny Builder.
First thing shouldn't be very hard to make - switch statement. The same that is used in C, for example. Compiler could change

switch 0@
    case 0
    something if 0
    end
    case 1
    something if 1
    end
end

to

if
0@ == 0
then
something if 0
end
if
0@ == 1
then
something if 1
end

Wouldn't be very hard to make, right?
Another suggestion is constant arrays. This is harder to implement, I think.

const
somearray = {5,6,14} //or some other syntax :)
end
do something with somearray[0@]

to

if
0@ == 0
then
do something with 5
end
if
0@ == 1
then
do something with 6
end
if
0@ == 2
then
do something with 14
end

If this was implemented, I wouldn't need to do some things in the same way I used to make the latest version of my leatherface mod smile

edit: third very little suggestion. Make it able to use constant number indexes on local arrays and change them to local variables when compiling. Shouldn't be hard to make.

Re: Two suggestions

1. Switches are good. I wanted this feature long time ago, so the todo list already includes it.
2. Nearly impossible. It could be implemented with constant indexes (somearray[1], for example), even though it requires improving the code pre-processor.
3. Nope. Assuming 2@ is the same as 1@[1] I don't think it's necessary to allow the second variant.
