TI-89/92/92+ Information Updated
Posted by Nick on 10 April 2000, 02:07 GMT

TI-89/92/92+ Information ThumbnailGareth James has updated his help file to fix some typographical errors and to add some more information.

However, most notable of the changes is the conversion of the entire file into a Windows-based help format, .chm. This makes navigation for info much easier. Download it in .CHM format here. You can find the original, in MS Word format (.doc), here.

For us Linux users, we'll have to stick with the .docs (unless there is a utility I don't know about for viewing chm's). But word2x works quite well.

And where does this guy get all this information? Intimidating!

He raided the TI 'headquarters' in Dallas and stole the highly classified SDK information and sent it to us...

Thats simple.... On his way out of the TI HQ, with a full version of the SDK, Gareth slipped and fell, the CD with the SDK software on it fell from his hands and bounced down the front steps and fell into the sewer drain.... All the informational text was recovered but the software is lost forever...

Well Nick, you just wanted someone to ask how you could do so much stuff simultaneously didn't you? (Just kidding) - by the way Fusion Amp Deck

/_IS NOT_/ (and other emphasis signs)

the best skin for Winamp - everybody knows Mercury is the best skin. C'Mon y'all - go search for mercury at http://www.winamp.com/skins!

One other thing - doesn't it take a long time to convert that much information into a Help file format??

Uh, no. Fusion AMPdeck is the ONLY Winamp skin :)

And the buttons on that mercury skin are too big and.. silver ;P

(Note: I haven't had a different skin on my Winamp for well over a year. I don't plan to change that.)

This ASM Tutorial has been incredibly helpful. One problem with the new release is that you need Windows to access the infromation - i.e. I can't read it on my Mac. If possible, having a plain Word version as well as Windows Help would give an alternative to those that don't have Windows. Other than that, thanks for all the great info.

A plain Word (.doc) version exists. Check for it in the latest updates list.

Umm. the .doc file is word 97 or word 2000, not word 95, could some one convert it for me, as my school only has work 95. Thanks

Can't this stuff be released in less Micro$oft specific formats?
Some of us actually use OSes other than Windows 95/98/NT, which makes .doc and .CHM a bit of a problem.
IMO, the best thing for documentation like this is DocBook SGML (see http://www.docbook.org/ and http://www.oasis-open.org/docbook/), but plain HTML would be fine.

If I'm not mistaken, *.CHM stands for compiled HTML, so it shouldn't be to difficult to convert the docs to a set of plain html files

cheers anyway etc.

What about poor old me? I acutally (believe it or not, I guarantee you it's true) use an iMac! I'm the ONLY TI-Calc person in the world who actually uses an iMac, and still efficiently gets along in the TI community. 'Course the iMac is probably my main reason for not having learned assembly yet...

Oh well.

anyone with fast modems... you COULD get Sun StarOffice if you don't feel like paying for MS Office (although MS Office is better)... www.sun.com/staroffice/

i don't know if it exists for linux, but you can check

What do mean, you don't know? It IS Linux... Well, not really, but it is well know that it's main use is in linux, mainly because it was the first office tool avaiable for it, and all the coverage it got when Sun aquired it...

Just helping

Well, free as in beer.
Abiword (http://www.abisource.com/) is a good GPLed word processor for linux, but it's a matter of principle really. MS Word .doc and .CHM are both proprietry formats, so the support will be relatively limited across OSes.
On the other hand, there are programs capable of displaying HTML for practically all systems.
(BTW: also for ti calcs?)
