At the beginning of 2012, Cemetech informally announced a fledgling wiki for the Casio Prizm, intended to serve as a clearinghouse for Prizm (fx-CG10 / fx-CG20) information. Targeted at both programmers and users, it is designed to document system calls, hardware features, and OS quirks, hold a compilation of useful programmer-written functions, and hold tutorials and links to further information. As we gradually publicized WikiPrizm around Cemetech, many members of the community stepped up to contribute, filling in reference material for BASIC and C programmers. I am happy to finally formally unveil WikiPrizm as open for business and new content. Of course, as with any wiki, especially a young one, it is still incomplete and evolving. In particular, documentation of many Prizm system calls is still lacking, and the majority of our Useful Prizm Routines have not been copied over.

I strongly encourage all Prizm programmers to spend a few minutes helping to fill in information, document system calls, and contribute new content and tutorials. If you need a wiki account, simply find me here, on IRC or on SAX, or via PM, and I will create you an account.

This will be cool. I have my Prizm now, it will take a couple weeks to get familiar with it, I have several other things on my plate, but it looks like a fast and ready little machine.

Indeed it is. I hope you'll be able to contribute some content to WikiPrizm once you become more familiar with it. Smile
This is a great idea! I love MediaWiki and the ability to profess my opinions!

That sounds like the Nikky I know and love! Does that mean you'll also be learning about the Prizm?

I have more tutorials added to the wiki. Hopefully they can be proofread by someone not me Smile I still have more to go, anyways. Bfile/MCS functions will need to get some love after writing a file system tutorial.

You can look at the tutorials here: http://prizm.cemetech.net/index.php?title=Prizm_Programming_Portal
Superb work, AHelper! I hope that everyone goes to check out your new additions to the tutorials, as I was just reading them through and was suitably impressed by your thoroughness and clarity in writing the sections. I'll have to add a few details of my own at some point.
Yay! Plenty of things in there I didn't know (after reading through the file system page, anyway), and that adds much-needed information on using the MCS.

Aye, the new MCS information plus Merth's work on the syscall references make the MCS system much more understandable.
Does Casio have a website or 800 number that performs the same function as 'TI-Cares'?

I'm trying to decipher how some of the Prizm's Basic commands work, some are like their TI counterparts, some not. It seems some of the commands are hardly documented at all. Perhaps a function of the software being 'under continuous developement'. So there must be a place to call at Casio about specifics like this.

As a side note, looking at the line of casio machines on this table:
http://edu.casio.com/products/cg_series/comchart.html

They all seem to have a similar feature set, so I would assume it's virtually the same software compiled for processor chips that are at least all in the same hardware CPU family...?
Relatively similar CPUs, yes. I believe there is an email for Casio, but for Casio BASIC questions, we might be more knowledgeable than them. Smile
You should look at the fx-* manuals. They document BASIC commands very nicely IMO. It's the syscalls that are lacking Wink

Do you know if there's a legal PDF of those from Casio available anywhere? If so, we should absolutely link to it from both the Casio Prizm Technical Documentation thread and the wiki.
It has always been available from when I first got my Prizm on Casio's education site: http://edu.casio.com/ Look for user manual, or click here

It is also available on your fx-CG Utilities CD, included with the Prizm under fx-CG10_20/UsersGuide/English/ where "fx-CG10_20" is your CD mount location.

And for people looking for a BASIC command reference, jump directly to page 8-11!
Could you help me? I don't know how to register in the wiki Confused
I can find only a "log in" button...

Read the first post. Wink
Oh - I just read the beginnig Rolling Eyes
Why is that so inconvenient Confused ? (probably spam?)
Isn't it possible to install a bridge between MediaWiki and this board (this is something that connects the accounts, you could log in with the cemetech account in the wiki Idea )?
Yes, it's to limit spambot accounts. I have looked into making a user bridge before, but it would require a huge amount of code, so I didn't bother.
If you deactivate the registration at the wiki and allow only board registrations, the spambots won't notice the bridge to the wiki (as far as I know).
