in discussion Forum 101 / Community Introductions » Hi!

Hi everyone! I'm a mathematics and applied physics double major in my junior year (ish, it's kinda complicated haha) of undergrad. I really love math and think it's incredibly beautiful, and I want to become a teacher someday to hopefully make a positive difference in young people's lives. Outside of stem-y stuff I play music, speedrun a couple games, and do a lot of reading :)
I've done some C# programming with unity, but my main language for solving problems I come across is python. I'm also sort of slowly learning haskell, but that's kind of on the back burner right now. I started writing little programs on my calculator in 10th grade health class to crunch numbers for me, and I want to try and make some more complex stuff (was maybe thinking about trying to throw a set theory visualizer together?).
Nice to meet you all!

Hi! by joho_srjoho_sr, 16 Feb 2023 18:56

Still does not appear to be a good way to do it. A way to do though on the TI Nspire is as follows:

Take the MSB of the first number (if 0 can skip), enter -(2 to the power of that digits index). Add it to the rest of the binary number after removing the MSB from that number (Ex: -1446 + 0b1101110101). The calculator will give you the result as a decimal number (base 10).

Do the same for the other one and add. Hope this helps someone who may have the same query.

As always, make sure you typed the code in exactly the same as you see in the above code. If you make extra sure it’s the same and there’s still something wrong, post again with your errors

The pool of options is unfortunately quite limited.

  • TI Connect CE's editor is fine, but lacks ASCII names for lots of tokens (instead requiring menus to select a token).
  • TokenIDE has a command index, ASCII names, and some syntax highlighting, but no auto-filling. It's a very minimal IDE but it works well.
  • SourceCoder on Cemetech is almost identical to TokenIDE, just online. It can edit other TI file types as well.

Note that each have slightly differing conventions on how to convert text to tokens. If you need to process a lot of code or a lot of files, use you can use tivars_lib_py or tivars_lib_cpp to automatically convert regular text files.

I personally use TokenIDE for medium-to-large projects, but if VS Code has spoiled you then you are sure to be disappointed. But there is still interest in the community for improved Basic tools, and input from coders such as yourself on what would be most useful is appreciated.

The solution to a complex problem is often a simple answer.

Re: IDE for TI-Basic by kg583kg583, 08 Feb 2023 16:50

Hey all, I'm new here. I'm starting to get into programming TI-Basic, thanks to this website. Anyways, I've begun programming on my laptop (Windows 10) using the TI Connect CE App. It's going well, however having coded in python and java, I have been spoiled by VS studio code. I was wondering if there was an IDE designed to be used with TI BASIC. It would be nice to have a way to debug simple syntax errors, especially in my larger programs. It would also be nice to auto-fill functions like Disp, Input, ect (not sure if those are functions or not in this language). I'm designing my programs for use on the ti84 plus silver edition if that makes any difference on the development end. I'd love to hear how some of the veterans of this forum go about effectively coding really big programs. I apologize in advance for my ignorance, any help is greatly appreciated!

I’m having the same issue, did you ever get it fixed?

Re: ABOUT NIBBLES by EmuKingEmuKing, 21 Jan 2023 21:15

So far I'm not been able to find any way to write a program opening a dialog allowing to ask for more than one variable input.
The "Request" instruction allows to have a dialog for just one input, but if I would like to have two inputs to me it seems impossible.

I'm wondering if there is any solution for this

Where'd he go? I'm checkin back on this website in 7th right now and It says his acc is deleted? Did something happen while I was on summer break?

I see someone else is looking for a few more characters too. I'm specifically missing 4 (Hex: 24) and )) (Hex: DE) I've been trying for hours, but haven't been able to get them onto my calculator.

This may be a noob question, but I'm missing a few characters, such as 4 (Hex: 24) and )) (Hex: DE) I've been trying for hours, but haven't been able to get them onto my calculator.

Hi everyone,
I'm a 3D artist living in Sweden. I only do scripting (maxscript/python) at the moment, but I've always had an inclination towards programming. I recently found my old TI-83 plus and all the memories came back! I love the limitations it has. Right now I'm looking into the TI-83 plus' character map, trying to find the last few characters that are missing in the CHARS.8xp.

I've probably seen all movies about time travel.

Good to meet you all!

Hey peeps by DavHedDavHed, 23 Nov 2022 22:07

You cannot do this in TI-Basic.

If you want to though, you can create a custom list with up to 5 letters in the name, and store your number(s) in that.
So you could do:


The (1 is important because it specifies what index of the list to store your number at. Also, because it's the first index, the calculator will automatically create the list for you, if it doesn't already exist.

Hope this helps!

But do note that this takes up more space, and if you're only using the list for one value, your program will look cleaner if you just use a normal single letter variable instead.

so i want to make variables with more than one char in the name but that gives me an error
how to do this without error

Make sure you’re using the List variable (L₆) and not typing "L6" as two separate characters
