Learn 83 Plus Programming with ticalc.org
Posted by Michael on 12 July 2004, 17:15 GMT

Are you looking for something to do during the summer? Well, we have posted our first tutorial since Morgan announced the reopening of the ticalc.org Exclusives. TI-83 Plus BASIC: A Beginners' Guide focuses on the fundamentals of 83+ BASIC commands, also providing a few challenge programs and solutions.

We've also added links in our programming section to Learn TI-83 Plus Assembly in 28 Days. This tutorial (also available online) has been very highly rated by users. It is the best 83+ ASM tutorial I've seen.

Two years in the archives before being featured. I wonder if that's some kind of a record. :-)

I used the 83plus asm in 28days to figure out some command details, even though I use an 86. It's a really good tutorial.

It seems like a good tutorial, if my computer would just cooperate with me... It is not allowing me to do the things in msdos that the tutorial requests...

Do reply with a link to that. I want to go there and degrade their forums. That is the stupidest thing anyone can do!

I just realized, there isn't a single 68k BASIC tutorial anywhere on the site. Not even a crappy one!

That is because the manual does a really good job explaining most of the programming commands. That is where I learned how to program my TI-89...

If I ever get around to it, I will write one for the 89, which should work for all 68k calcs at my site, click link.

That's pretty cool how you have all the calcs pictured on your site... now all you need is the Voyage 400 ;-) That would be really funny if you posted that there, LOL

BASIC is NOT programming. (Well, REAL programming.)

True, but it is a pretty good start. Thanks to basic, I'm now programming in Python and JavaScript.

BASIC
ti_is_good_++  Account Info

BASIC is programming, at least in the way I define 'programming.' How do you define 'programming?'

-It has functions and statements
-It has file manipulation
-It passes instructions to a processor
-It can crash the device
-It requires skill
-It is not confined to an internet browser
-It can perform operations (it isn't a markup language)
-It can change the configuration of the device
-It can make global changes
-It can access machine code

What else? How isn't that real?

"-It can crash the device"

LOL. I wonder how many times I have done that in BASIC... Something about not finishing the code... The calc just does not like that...

Do tell me how one can crash a calculator using Basic.

I think that newList(x) with x undefined will overflow a register.

I think you can also archive something over and over, and that has to do something. And wouldn't the value just wrap around to the beginning of the register or something?

Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: BASIC

Archiving repeatedly destroys the ROM chip.

It does not wrap around. It attempts to assign to a location that doesn't exist.

Also:

fill(x) does something, which I forget, and you can always type something random like N9C4237GH9G4OVR048 into the Exec() function.

I didn't. JavaScript is a very good *scripting* language.

It's incredibly slow and VERY high level, especially z80 BASIC. Higher than PHP.

Re: Re: BASIC

High level? As in? What's bad about that?

If it's written intelligently, it's just as fast as to be indistinguishable from ASM. I compared execution speeds once, and the difference was so small that I couldn't measure it (less than .05 seconds).

The program was factoring a large number, by the way (I forget what it was).
