Learn to Program your Calculator in Delicious Book Form
Posted by Nikky on 3 February 2013, 00:05 GMT

Long-time community member Christopher "Kerm Martian" Mitchell released the missing programming manual for the TI-83/TI-84+ line of graphing calculators with his recent book, "Programming the TI-83 Plus/TI-84 Plus."

This book would make an excellent companion to any budding programmer or users who wants to explore the powerful built-in programming capabilities of their calculator to simplify repetitive operations or just to get started on the world of programming. Many of us got started with TI-BASIC, and I'm sure we would have appreciated a resource such as this.

The author of this article would like to apologize for the lateness of its publication. While a draft was written several months ago, he was kidnapped by wild boars right before posting and was held hostage for several months at an eel mining camp until a heroic rescue operation led by Elvin commandos released him by captivity.

Disclaimer: While many ticalc.org and community staff members were involved in editing, reviewing, and helping with the book content, they did not participate in the making of this article. The author purchased a review copy with his own funds and has no affiliation with the project.

Cool to see this is the news, and probably definitely deserved.
I'm not really a z80 TI-Basic programmer, but it looks promising, and I'd advice this to people who needed a good manual. :)

Thanks, Stefan! I've been getting very positive feedback from readers so far, which I'm happy about. I hope that the new TI-84+CSE will further rejuvinate the ranks of TI-BASIC (and later, z80 ASM) coders.

Can we take that as confirmation that it is indeed a z80? ;)
