TI-Graph Link Software for Win NT 4.0 and Mac G3
Posted on 20 September 1998, 07:25 GMT

Texas Instruments has released beta versions of the TI-Graph Link software for Windows NT 4.0 and Macintosh G3. All versions are avilable for Windows NT, but only the TI-82, TI-83, TI-85, and TI-92 versions are available for the Mac G3. The others are still being developed. Now all we need are versions for Linux. :)

True, that. We DO need ports of the graphlink software for linux. I'm glad at least TI has recognized the need for availability of the software on other platforms. I wrote a feature a couple months ago describing why I thought releasing the source for the TI-Graphlink software was a good idea (TM), but it appears TI strictly adheres to the 'proprietary' in proprietary software policy. At this point, I'd be perfectly content if TI would create ports for X11/Linux...which shouldn't involve much work, after all, they did it for NT4 and MacG3. Many software companies have come to realize Linux is the fastest growing OS on the planet, and after the Windows OSes and MacOS, the third most widely used OS by TI calc users. We need ports for linux, TI...for the love of God, please recognize this fact!

I know at least one piece of link software
created for linux. At this point,
i dont remember the name, but i'm sure
you could find it by doing an altavista
or hotbot search +linux +TI +link +download
or something. Linux people are used
to having to create their own drivers and ports...
however, it would be pretty cool if TI
created Graph Link for linux (as long as its not
made for KDE :)

I have a Alpha of a program I'm working on for linux that supports the TI-82/83/85/86.

I'd be interested in beta testing this program for you (hint, hint)

Hi,

I'm myself working on some linux link software for the TI-8x. I have a working version, which sends programs to the calc. It also receives... but I miss some specs. for a few bytes in the .8xp files...

My new program is made almost completely in Java ( I need it to run on both linux and NT ). It only needs a DLL ( or libxx on linux ) for send/receiving a single byte from the par/ser port.

Maybe you would like to work together with me, to produce a single, better program? ( C, C++ or Java ) ?

Please reply in email ( jks@hotmail.dk ) -- thanks!

G3 Version

It's actually not just a G3 version. It's a new version that supports ALL Macs and has G3 support now. TI is real stupid.

Re: G3 Version
John Gardner

Yeah, and I don't see any reason why the old version wouldn't work on G3s also! G3s are Power Macs with the newest processor! Making a version for G3 Macs isn't like making one for Windows NT 4, a different OS than 95/98, it's like making a version specifically for the Pentium II 400. That doesn't make any sense, so I think TI is just confused. They must basically mean it is a new version of the Mac software, period.
