  1. This is an informative, lengthy manual describing little-known tips, tricks, and hacks for TI-BASIC that are sure to turn you into a '1337' programmer.

  2. This technical report details the CALCnet 2.2 networking protocol for graphing calculators. It begins with an overview of the motivations and inspirations for CALCnet, then reviews the existing alternatives for two-calculator linking, namely the TI-OS, BELL by Tim "Timendus" Franssen, and TachyonLink by Michael Vincent, and n-calc linking, namely CLAP by Mr. Franssen. It goes on to introduce the electrical systems in the calculator for linking, then proceeds to an in-depth section explaining the bit-level, byte-level, and frame-level protocols for one-to-one and broadcast frames. Although the average CALCnet 2.2 user or even programmer does not need to know any of that, it might help in case a coder wants to write CALCnet 2.2 drivers for another platform (Arduino? libticables?). Next is the meat of the manual for end programmers, how to send and receive data via CALCnet 2.2. I include a full experimental results and benchmarking section, detailing the maximum speeds of CALCnet, the overhead incurred by the protocol, effects of frame size on burst throughput, an effectiveness of collision detection and delivery guarantees. It concludes with information on logos and branding, a survey of possible future work, and a summary of CALCnet2.2's strengths and features.

  3. Doors CS 7.2 is the ultimate shell for TI-83+/SE and TI-84+/SE graphing calculators. This SDK will help you design BASIC and ASM programs for use under Doors CS. Besides an exhaustive, 124-page summary of all the features and routines that Doors CS 7 offers to BASIC and ASM programmers, this SDK contains a full toolchain to compile and build z80 ASM source code into .8xp files, all the necessary tools and include files, and additional programs to simplify writing headers for BASIC programs. If you are interested in developing for Doors CS or even learning about what it offers to programmers, this SDK is a must-have.

  4. To accompany the 1.0 release of the gCnClient software to connect networks of graphing calculators to and across the internet, this documentation describes the hardware and software necessary to use the gCnClient, including schematics of the gCn bridge device build on a simple commodity Arduino, the alternate cheaper USBHID design for more experienced users, troubleshooting, and instructions for programming the Arduino or USBHID Bridge on Windows, Linux, and Mac OS and using the gCnClient on any operating system.

  6. A few years ago, I wrote an extensive, in-depth tutorial exploring TI-BASIC for the TI-83, TI-83+, and TI-83 Silver Edition. In all, it has thirty-six lessons. Now, all twelve of the original sections are available as it was meant to be seen, in pure, crossplatform HTML! The first volume includes information on creating, editing, and running programs as well as displaying text on-screen. The second volume contains information about getting input from the user and clearing the screen, as well as a review of the first two tutorials and a quiz. The third volume contains information about If statements, pausing, and several sample programs to help you learn. The fourth volume includes information on Boolean Logic, the While command, and loops using For. The fifth volume includes information on labels and gotos, menus, Return, and Stop. The sixth volume includes information on programs within programs, or nested programs, and random numbers. The seventh volume includes information on copying and pasting within programs, using strings in your programs, and the graphscreen. The eighth volume includes more information on the graphscreen, creating text on the graphscreen, and drawing lines. The ninth volume includes information on graphing, manipulating the window variables, and displaying the graph table from within programs. The tenth volume includes information on circles, horizontal lines, vertical lines, saving and opening pictures, and a review lesson. The eleventh volume includes information on the GetCalc command, loops using Repeat, and pixel drawing. The twelfth volume includes information on drawing using points, and some extensive syntax about lists and using them in your programs. Finally, the complete compiled tutorials contain an introduction, conventions key, and appendix about the fonts used by the calculators. It now contains the full version. A must-have for all programmers, beginner and advanced alike!

  7. Simon Lothar has collected a great deal of technical information on the Casio Prizm, aka the fx-CG10 and fx-CG20. This Windows help file contains all of that information, including some system calls and technical details that are not yet in WikiPrizm or built into the PrizmSDK. This is the chm documenting all of the Prizm features demonstrated in the INSIGHT Add-In by Simon Lothar, plus much more. New: updated to version 15.

  9. A work in progress KiCAD Schematic for an Arduino shield that supports 3 calculator networking. The shield footprint and schematic are in separate zip files. Put the Arduino shield files in the library path for KiCAD, and put the gCnBridge files in a project directory. There\'s a PDF of the schematic in there as well, although it's mostly the same as the schematic in the Calcnet documentation, apart from the connectors.

    I\'ve cross checked with the Sparkfun zigbee shield, and that seems to use D2/D3 on the Arduino, so there\'s some compatibility there. WiFi seems to be a bit up in the air, the Sparkfun WiFi shield takes up most of the data lines. I haven't looked at the new, official Arduino shield yet, nor have I looked at the Ethernet shields yet.

    I have 3 2.5mm connectors for serial connections to calculators, but I haven't broken out the calipers yet to figure out how many I can add to the end of the board, it may be a couple of more. I also don't have footprints yet for the 2.5mm connector I'm using, so that's coming.

  11. Up to date Notepad++ support for the latest standard of Redcode for Core Wars. Supports all ICWB \'88 and \'94 standard opcodes, extensions, modifications, and memory modes, along with pMARS 0.8 private space instructions. Also supports assert, for/rof, pin, org, end, comments, special comments, equ, and defines such as CORESIZE, PSPACESIZE, MAXCYCLES, MAXPROCESSES, WARRIORS, MAXLENGTH, CURLINE, MINDISTANCE, and VERSION. Perfect to use for longer Redcode warriors.

  12. The axiom, AxeDCS, allows one to use assembly references directly from DoorsCS in your Axe programs. You will need DoorsCS 7.1.1 at least to compile and run the program, and Axe 1.2.0 at least to compile.

    This xml file is a token file for TokenIDE, allowing you to write axe programs with the DCS axiom and correct syntax.

  13. This is the source code for the beta version of the mouse driver for TICI 1.0, the new external hardware standard for TI calculators. It allows you to connect an external PS/2 mouse using a TICI 1.0 hub (plans in the hardware section of the TICalc archives). Use this as a stand-alone program, integrate it into your BASIC programs, or put it into your ASM programs! An amazing breakthrough in TI calculator hardware.
