NewProg v1.0
Posted by Travis on 18 March 2010, 10:52 GMT

NewProg by "Prog New" is an alternative high-level programming language for 68K calculators that bridges the gap between the built-in TI-BASIC language and C. It complements TI-BASIC by using similar syntax and allowing TI-BASIC and NewProg code to be intermixed in a program. It adds around 200 functions, including many wrappers for common GCC4TI/TIGCC library calls, enabling the use of things such as text formatting, grayscale, and sprites. Programs can be written using the normal built-in program editor, then compiled and run directly on the calculator.

Anyone looking for something more powerful than TI-BASIC but with less of a learning curve than ASM or C and the ability to work on projects anywhere without a computer might want to take a look at this.

ah, this looks very interesting. I think I´ll give it a try. A programming oncalc language which is faster than old Ti-Basic seems very good.

wow nice, it reminds me Axe for the TI-83+ serie. Nice to see new alternatives to BASIC, ASM and C.

On 68k this has alerady been done twice before, with GFA BASIC (on-calc programmable) and ETP Studio, but both language doc is only in french, if I recall correctly, and they were not finished.

An interesting project. If it is polished enough (I didn't tried it yet), it may be useful (and used :).

I like the on-calc program editing and compiling capability: I tried to bridge the TI-Basic to C gap a while ago with my Power Basic translator (using the same translation-to-TIGCC-project approach than Moka). I think on-calc compilation is definitely a plus for a TI-Basic substitution effort.

Does this language work to program the nspire or nspire cas?
