The Doors Homepage is now being hosted by ticalc.org at http://doors.ticalc.org. This site is the home of the Doors OS assembly shell and the Doors GUI for the TI-89 and TI-92 Plus calculators. Updates on these programs are posted regularly, so check this site often.

Doors and the ASM Petition
Matt Peresie
(Web Page)

Doors is the best shell on the 89. Hopefully they will add somethings when TI releases the ASM info they have been prominsing. I am trying to help all you programmers out with my petition. So far the petition has around 550+ names as of March 3. We are starting to write the main petition part of the petition. If you would like to submit your ideas for the petition please send them to matt@calc.org and we will try to include them in the petition we send to TI. Keep up the good work on Doors and you will get the ASM info soon.

Yes, I will:
- update the .h files
- add many docs probably
- provide access to much more ROM CALLS
- maybe update the Explorer with TIBASIC and Archive / Unarchive support

How many names are you expecting before you will send it ?

As of right now March 4th early morning the petition probably has almost 600 names. All along I was shooting for 500 names but that came and went. Now I would like to try to get atleast 750 names. So the faster people sign it the faster TI will receive it.
This is for all programmers-
I am not really a very good ASM programmer. So if you want to request specific things from TI in the ASM petition. Please email them to me. It would help me make the petition better and we would all get what we want the first times. Make sure your email are specific as can be.

Explain the Petition
Ty

Hi. I am not very good at 68K yet, so I may not know a lot about what we're petitioning for. Would someone please just tell me (or post it so everyone can see) what info is needed? What has TI been keeping from us? I would really like an example so I can see what is missing from our knowlege.

When the 89/92+ was created it was implemented with built in assembly support. Texas Instruments has not released any info on how to use this function. So people started to find out for them selvs. Thats how plusshell and doors os started. In a sense this is kind of another 'hack'. They use their own file format much similar to Fargo's. Now a petition is being formed for TI to release the info promised in the 89/92+ manual. This info would allow programmers to make 'stand alone' programs that do not need a shell. And also create more powerfull programs that could interface with the BASIC language.

Just a few examples of what you can't do currently:
- interact with the TIOS: get params, return some values, run TI BASIC progs, etc, etc..
- Use the Archive memory
- Use the MATHS functions of the TIOS
