TI-89/TI-92+ SDK 1.0 Released
Posted by Eric on 14 January 2002, 21:48 GMT

TI has released the first official (non-beta) version of their TI-89/TI-92+ SDK. Not much has been added since the beta versions, but it does allow all freeware applications to be loaded into the emulator. It's free, so all you developers out there...give it a whirl.

Cool a new SDK!

Perhaps a first post?

So what? It doesn't make your post any better.

How does the compiler compare to TI-GCC, in terms of code generation? Is the code more efficient? I thought that TI-GCC should have a register calling option. That should speed up code quite a bit. Does the SDK's compiler have that?

No, was the second post. And if it was the first post it wouldn't make it any better.

>> Who uses TI's SDK anyway?

I'm sure someone does. TI-GCC and such are great but I bet there will always be a few people who want to use the "official" SDK.

The strength and coherence of your responses and arguments astounds me.

Anyway, duh it shows up first, but it is redundant to shout out "w00t! fr0st p0st! I am s0 m4d l33t!!!!!"

Seriously, I am starting to wonder if I preferred the days when the ticalc.org staff censored the "fr0st p0sts," even though in general I dislike censorship. Too bad there isn't a moderation system like on slashdot.

Idea: what if it were possible in preferences to filter out certain types of posts that could be moderated down somehow, so you could choose whether or not you want to ignore things like fr0st p0sts, trolls, flamebait, etc.

Actually, that would be a simple perl script. It could search for posts with "Werewolf.com" or "EvilDead 89"

You are forgetting that it would take effort and the people who code the site do not give this specific thing a high priority, I would assume (or they prolly would have done it already).

Maybe so, but then it is checked for bugs, checked for vulnerabilities, checked for conflicts in other code, and who knows if ticalc would even want to use it.

It was just a suggestion, I wasn't demanding TICALC to use it.

Possibly, every post less than 20 words containing the words 'first post' could be DELETED.

Then they misspell it with f1rst or fr0st.

Then they could collect a bank of strings used to brag first posts, and then check to see if the message if however many characters long or less...

Apparently, my post had an argument, unbeknownest to me, attached to it.
First of all, I program for this calculator sometimes and I though it was cool.

Secondly, I entered "Perhaps a first post?" to show sarcasism for other people who think this coincidence give them immortality or something.

I SEIZED THE OPPORTUNITY TO SOUND OFF. I AGREE WITH YOU, AND USED MY STATEMENT SARCASTICALLY.

I'm sorry that I caused unnecessary argument.

I agree, almost. First post is an exciting and a rare thing to achieve as long as that's not all your message. I've gotten first post about 3 times, and it's kind of fun. The only thing that some people think is annoying is if that is all they say and they say nothing else relative.

Yes I do. I also use TI-GCC, but I want to start with programming Flash-Apps. But to develop RAM-Apps I always use TI-GCC because of the much better help.

> Who uses TI's SDK anyway?

I do!

Not that most programmers will find it useful, since they can't have apps signed (although now that it's 1.0, they may sell signings).

The documentation is, in some places, better than TIGCCLIB (but lacking in others), the resource compiler is very useful, and the debugger is great (when it works - hopefully it's been fixed a bit since beta 3).

And there are some cool things you can do with apps that you can't do with ASM programs, and many other cool things we were able to figure out with the SDK docs that haven't been done by any TIGCC programs. Maybe I'll finally release some of these soon =)


On a side note, I found TI's description of "What's Changed" to be odd. First of all, the TI site dates the new release as 1/2/02, but I was on the site checking for a new version three days ago and it wasn't there yet. Then they say it's 1.0, although FS' about screen reports 1.1. Oh, and loading freeware signed apps isn't new -- it's done that since the first alphas, with ee200 and some other freeware signed apps that I have.

What HAS changed appears to be minor. The sim menu now has a reset option (yes!), and linking to an actual calc appears to work. At least one stupid crash bug was fixed; there could be many more, but I wouldn't know. And the documentation doesn't appear to have changed.

I use both the sdk, and TIGCC.

They are a one two punch when combined. or in my case uncombined =P

I've also noticed a few discrptancies in the sdk...

one of the nice features that was added is that when you click build, it now sends the app to the simulator.

as previously mention, there is no 'freeware' key like the z80 calcs have... yet... i do hope they let that out the door soon.

It is a strange v1.0 release if you ask me. It looks as if they had a deadline, and the beta version made it as 1.0 with a few bug fixes and additions...

The TI-89/92p didn't just come out. Seems like they took their time with this. But hey, I'm glad it's out in a non-beta form.

oh, really? maybe that is why i have been programming for both calcs for quite some time now... strange isn't it?

>Seems like they took their time with this.
they most certantly did!

>But hey, I'm glad it's out in a non-beta form.
um, ok...
