Re: Nspire Compatibility

The same, since it is running on an 84+ emulator.

Re: Nspire Compatibility

It no longer seems to crash (at least everything that didn't work before works now).

Re: Nspire Compatibility

It seems that most graphics commands and anything involving TIME$ don't work.
It would probably be best to have an Nspire version to keep things fast. How hard would it be to get rid of those four unsupported instructions?

Nspire Compatibility

It seems that BBC Basic is almost compatible with the TI-Nspire in 84+ mode. So far the only issues I've found are that VDU 5 and several PLOT commands crash the Nspire. Is it possible to fix this?

Re: Editor?

Ben:
If you still have the original text editor app, could you release the app and/or the source? That may, perhaps someone else could write the tokenizer.
Would it be feasible to write the tokenizer in BBC Basic?

Re: Editor?

Isn't there a BBC Basic star command that reads a text file (*LOADTEXT)?
As for writing programs on the PC, I know several people who dislike programming calculators on anything but a calculator. Part of the attractiveness of calculator programming is that they are portable.

Editor?

What happened to that plain-text editor app from the first post in the Progress Thread? It seems like a nice way to edit BBC Basic programs in a way that feels more like the TI-BASIC editor.
Also, is there a way to check whether a file of a certain name exists?

The S%?15=&BEF is a typo, I meant for it to be S%?15=&EF. Fortunately, the code worked despite the typo.

Re: [News] BBC BASIC Beta Testing - 2009/02/18 r718

Changing it to IF POINT(U%,40)=0 GOTO 411 doesn't work either. And the hand assembled code was copied from the ExecAsm page on WikiTI.

Re: [News] BBC BASIC Beta Testing - 2009/02/18 r718

Could you explain the use of the POINT statement? Specifically, the following bit of code: 10 DIM S% 19 20 S%?0=&21 30 S%?0=&21 40 S%?1=&4C 50 S%?2=&93 60 S%?3=&11 70 S%?4=&40 80 S%?5=&93 90 S%?6=&01 100 S%?7=&F4 110 S%?8=&02 120 S%?9=&ED 130 S%?10=&B0...

Re: [News] BBC BASIC Beta Testing - 2009/02/06 r688

With the new version (688) the link port often gets set to a value that causes the calculator to freeze. I have to go to CalcSys to manually change the value of the link port to fix it.

Re: [News] BBC BASIC Beta Testing - 2009/02/04 r684

r684 won't run at 15 mhz on my 84+ SE.
