TIGCC v0.93 Released
Posted by Eric on 5 February 2002, 09:54 GMT

Sebastian Reichelt of the TIGCC team has released the long-awaited TIGCC v0.93, their C compiler for the TI-89 and TI-92+. Check out the Changelog to find out what's new; a vastly updated IDE seems to be the main improvement. Also check out the source code and the alternative files.

sounds cool, but I don't own ti-89 or 92 :(

What edit control does the IDE use? I noticed it does syntax highlighting. I recently discovered an excellent free control for Delphi / C++Builder: SynEdit (see URL for this post). It's very similiar to the control used Delphi or C++Builder, or HomeSite. Unfortunately for me, I use C++Builder and the examples are in Delphi, so I can't compile them :( If you ever decide to use a different edit control, it would be highly worth your time to check it out.

Good work on TIGCC!

Interesting. Though it does compile faster, it seems to have trouble with backlogged keystrokes (e.g. it might not display all your typing in the IDE as you type). It seems to lag a bit behind my typing speed. I'm not sure why it would do this; it was the only program I had running that did so.

Example:
I typed "123456789012345678901234567890" quickly (ran my finger across the numbers) and it took 5 seconds to display this. I could actually watch the individual numbers being printed.

That would be a problem with the edit control. TSynEdit shouldn't have any problems with that. And it already does syntax highlighting for a ton of different languages. I want to take it and write a nice editor that is a cross between the C++Builder editor and HomeSite.

I wrote the edit control completely by myself. At that time I didn't know about SynEdit. Now I don't want to switch to another component, because that would mean that my work was useless. ;-) I have to fix a design error, though: I need to make it more line-based. I process the text a one complete string; that's why editing large files is really slow.

Is it not subclassed from TCustomMemo? TSyntaxMemo is, and as such, uses TStrings for everything. That might be something to look into. Or just realize that you wrote a lot of code, learned some important stuff, had fun, and switch to TSyntaxMemo, and possibly help contribute to it's development :) That control does everything you could possibly want, including syntax highlighting, spell checking, completion (intellisense), etc. It's quite cool. There's nothing wrong with abandoning something you've written, when you find a better way of doing it, or find something that better suites your needs. And I really wish one of my coworkers could understand that fact... Not Invented Here (NIH) syndrome is a very bad thing.

I do not see ANY reason to throw away Sebastian's syntax highlighting editor since it works fine. There is no point in using a third-party component just because it exists.

Ugh! That username verification thing is annoying!

Anyway, a bit off topic, but does anyone know how to create a HALT in TI-89 C? I made a tiny tron/nibbles-type game with interesting add-ons, but it runs WAY to fast. I'm using the OSdequeue() thingy, but it runs WAY too fast. I need to slow it down. Any suggestions? Anyone?

I know it sounds amateur, but you could always do:
for (loop = 0; loop < 25; loop++) {
...
}
or something like that...
I know it probably wasn't any help, but who knows:)

That's a bad idea, because it will needlessly eat up CPU time (i.e. battery life). You should never delay like that on any platform if at all possible.

Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: TIGCC v0.93 Released

It just depends on how desperate you are, and the way he said it, it sounded as though he never really meant for it to be sent out everywhere, just as a test.
In that case, he probably won't play it much, and it won't matter too much how much battery power it takes. If he plans on sending out over the internet, then I completely agree.

AAAAHHHHHHHH!!!!! @#$@#$@#%@#$!$@!

I HIT THE CLEAR KEY AND IT ERASED MY WHOLE MESSAGE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Anyway, I just found a new way that seems to work okay. It's a bit slower than I'd like, but I can live with it.

OSFreeTimer(USER_TIMER);
OSRegisterTimer(USER_TIMER, 1);
while(!OSTimerExpired(USER_TIMER) && !kbhit());
if (kbhit()){
key=ngetchx();
}
...

What it does it, it starts a 1/20 second pause and it waits until either the 1/20 pause time is up, or if the user presses a key, and then it will grab the keycode if there was one, and then goes on with the rest of the program.

Does anyone else program in C for the TI-89/92+, or am I the only one?

By 'inline assembly', he meant that you could use assembly code within a C program. I'm not sure exactly how you can do it; I know that it's used in Francois Leiber's FLib program, so if you want to know then start with that.
