How can you simplify something like that to a yes/no question. For instance, I like the Cheddar Golfish, but those Pretzel ones are just gross. What would I put for my answer?

i think it's quite obvious that the survey is refering to cheddar goldfish. but sure, i guess that COULD be unclear to some people. anyways, you said you like cheddar ones, so
yes -13-
no -1-
never tried -1-

The Administrators probably have better things to do than think up polls so geeks can post stupid comments like w00t! Personally, I'd rather see them neglect the polls and add more good files (for the TI-83 Plus, of course) than the other way around.

I beseech you, great lords of the TI realm, with your awesome powers, to close this most genius survey posted by one divine Magnus. I, a most faithful and unwavering follower, am confident that your extreme abilities could open a new survey of unimaginable caliber. Please, masters of all, I beg of you to honor my most humble request with undiminshed regard to time.

Obviously you haven't discovered the draw menu. This is for TI-82/83/83 Plus. I dunno about the 86 or 89. And space ( ) erases anything in front of it. On the 86, try [2nd] + [DRAW] and look at all the pretty tokens. The TI-85/86 interface is wierd and so am I (me (not my interface (well, maybe (these are a lot of parentheses))))...

Re: Re: Some one Help!

Use the Text( token. After that you type in the coordinates you want the text to be displayed at. The first coordinate is the number of pixels down from the top of the screen. The second coordinate is the number of pixels right from the left side of the screen. Text on the graph screen is 7 pixels tall, but varies in width (most are 5 pixels wide), so you'll have a hard time lining up columns. So if you wanted some text of the third line at the left side of the screen, you'd put:

Text(21,0,"Your text here.")

P.S. If you've a clog, call w00ty w00ter.

The small font characters on all of the calculators are 6 pixels high, including a blank row of pixels at the top. The width of each character depends on the calculator, but each has one blank column of pixels on the right side of the characters.

Characters are, AFAIK:
TI-83: 3 pixels wide
TI-86: range from 1 (space, period) to 5 (letter "W", tilde "~")
TI-9x: range from 1 (period) to 5.

It's a good idea to use seven instead of six pixels in height. Think about how wierd it would look if the characters were all mashed together. So, yes, if you measure the black stuff in the letter then it is six pixels high, but for all practical purposes, the height is seven. BTW, the width is indeed five. My handbook told me so.

P.S. What's AFAIK mean?

On the TI-86 and TI-9x I know for fact that the characters are only 6 pixels high (I've done a lot of graphics/text on them), and I'm pretty sure they're only 6 on the TI-83(+(SE)) as well. If, while typing in the small font on the TI-83, the characters erase black pixels below the baseline, then the entire character is 7 pixels. Until you can prove this happens, I'm sticking to 6.

82/83(+(SE)), the home screen text is 5*7 and the graph screen text is 3*5 (Note: The width varies in lowercase). Where did you get the 6 crap?

6 = 5 + 1 blank row at the top of characters which is part of each character.

By the way, characters on the home screen are a total of 6x8 pixels, thereby fitting exactly 8 chars vertically (8 * 8 = 64) and 16 horizontally (16 * 6 = 96).

My reasoning behind all of this is that the "pad" pixels really are part of the characters.

On the 89:


PtText string,x,y

string is whatever you want on the graph screen in quotation marks
x and y are the coordinates relative to the axes of the graph screen
EX: PtText "ShUT uP!?!",0,0 will display everything between the quotation marks exactly as it was typed at the origin of the graph screen (where the axes cross)


PxlText string,row,column

string is same as above
row is the number corresponding to the row of pixels (the dots that make up the screen of the calculator) with the top row of the graph screen being = to 0, the next underneath being 1, and so on
column is the same way except that it applies to the the vertical lines of pixels with the left-most being 0, the next being 1, and so on
EX: PxlText "shut up!",0,0 will display the text between the quotation marks at the top left of the screen, regardless of the window settings because pixels always have the same value

whew! that's done.

This is one thing I like about the TI-9x calcs: every graphics command has both a graph- and screen-relative mode (Pt and Pxl), even text.

That's wierd. Why does it do the text in relation to the graph settings. You'd have to put a chunk in your program to set the window stuff every time you wanted to display text on the graph screen (or just use PxlText).
