xLIB is a TI-83+/84+/SE assembly application created by Patrick Prendergast (tr1p1ea), and it adds additional functionality to TI-Basic programs. It works by installing a parser hook which will intercept any real( command requests.

Some of its features include:

  • Fast sprites/tilemapping
  • Faster key routines
  • Scrolling the screen
  • Executing archived programs


Unfortunately, there isn't a whole lot of documentation that has been created for xLIB. The three main pieces of documentation that have been created so far include the readme file itself, a tutorial heavily based on the readme, and a masked sprites tutorial explaining how to use xLIB to create masked sprites. We can hopefully create more documentation at some point in the future.
