I have been working on a small project that allows you to store a sequence of keypresses in a string and have them simulated one at a time. One of the examples I made creates a "hello world!" program step by step. It goes through all of the appropriate key presses and whatnot and I thought that it might actually be useful to show somebody how to create such a program:
My idea is rather adventurous, to put it one way, but what if we could make an application to go over how to use all of the available commands and even make example programs? The app might be pretty big, but I could add in all sorts of neat features. For example, I could make it possible to display text in small font or something to describe to the user what is happening at each step. I am not sure how many commands there are, but I estimate that 400 commands would require less than 8000 bytes of data for just the parts that show the user where to find the command and how to input arguments to it. To add in the play-by-play text stuff, it would likely fill up the rest of the app page (each app page is 16384 bytes) and to do programming examples and walkthroughs, we would probably need another app page. In all, I think this could be done with a 2-page app.
We could have a very light version of TI-BasicDeveloper on the calc o.o This is a very ambitious project, and I doubt I will have the time or stamina for this undertaking. I wanted to share the idea and show that it could be done in case somebody else or multiple others were up to the task :)
47%? Take a look and try to imagine how cool 100% will be. This has won zContest 2011 and made news on TICalc. This compromise between Assembly and BASIC parses like BASIC and is fast like assembly. Grammer 2
