Jonah Cohen Releases Advanced Text Editor v0.9
Posted by Eric on 25 November 2000, 04:39 GMT

Advanced Text Editor v0.9Jonah Cohen has released a "huge upgrade" (in his words, at least) to his popular text editor for the TI-86, Advanced Text Editor v0.9. A long-awaited word wrap feature is included in this version, as well as many other enhancements and some bugfixes. Check it out.

On a completely unrelated note, Alex Tran sent me a link to a site with some calculator benchmarking information. The site is geared towards Casio calculators (which we all know to be inferior ;) and thus might be a tad biased, but the results are nevertheless interesting. The calculators benchmarked include the TI-82 and TI-83+ as well as various Casio, Sharp, and HP calculators.

For some reason or another, my TI-83 Plus results for his statistics test seem to be quite a bit faster than what is reported. Of course, that could just be me...Anyone else notice the same?

I knew about this site a few months ago and I sent an e-mail to ticalc.org to do similar tests. I don't have a TI-83 plus but I have a TI-86, I did the bivirate stats test and the 86 totally burned the CFX. I think that site is a bit biased and that's why I thought ticalc.org should do similar tests as well. I don't know about the quality of that sharp calc though, it get's seriously crushed in all the tests. You guys do those tests as well and see what happens with your calcs. They should have added a TI-89... Those would have killed every other calculator in the tests.

Obviously these tests are a *LITTLE* (cough) off. These people want to make the Casio look good, which we all know it isn't (I should know I HAD one and deeply regret the decision). As for the last counting problem - I know for a FACT that the TI-83+ could blow the Casio CFX-9850G away! The disp command in the CFX BASIC sucks! I should know, I had one and regret the decision. The power of the dark side was too great. I couldn't help myself. But Yoda showed me the way. I have righted my self and now own an 83+. I won't ever go back!

I plan to do tests similar to these comparing TI calculators to each other. I'll include 82,83,83+,86,89 (and the 81 just for fun :-). The only problem is that battery power affects speed, so I will run each set of tests on my calcs only when they just got new batteries. This means it will be quite some time before I'm finished as the batteries in my 89 aren't going dead anytime soon.

Send the results to Charlie Watson, the guy that runs the site.

Testing my 83+ against my 9850G, I myself found the results to be about the same as the tests. Perhaps "your mileage will vary".

The 68k calcs (89,92(+)) are about the same as the 82 and 83 at graphing, but they are far superior at general mathamatical functions. They are equipped with a complex CAS system that can solve many problems simplified in a fraction of the time.
Compared to my 89, the graphs were about the same time, the integration problem was solved about 6 times faster and the program(i don't know if i made it right) was almost 24 times faster.

Ummmm.... With the function graphing I can't get my 92+ to do the d/dx(x^2-2x-3) or whatever - "Undefined varible" Don't laugh, I don't use my calc for calculus and stuff yet, just games geometry and basic math - lol.

You type it in as d(x^2-2x-3,x). The d used is found under Math, Calculus and it says Differentiate next to it.

And I'll have to laugh with you: lol.

As to how those people got their benchmark times...maybe they filled up the RAMs of the TI-83+? *cough*

Nah, filling the RAM would be too easy. I'll bet they underclocked the calcs!

That would regularly be counterproductive, but with these people, who knows.

If they had balls they wouldve put the ti-89 into the benchmarking contest, instead they used a ti-82 and ti-83.
Wow 100 games...they must be proud.

Not a lack of balls, but a lack of money or resources probably stopped them from it.

Or maybe a lack of balls to get the money and resources... :-)

I e-mailed them and asked why they didn't put a TI89 in, they said they didn't have the calcs.
