 Posted: 23 Apr 2004 09:52:41 pm    Post subject: Also GetCalc( has a new argument: Quote:GetCalc(variable[,portflag]) By default, the TI-84 Plus uses the USB port if it is connected. If the USB cable is not connected, it uses the I/O port. If you want to specify either the USB or I/O port, use the following portflag numbers: portflag=0 use USB port if connected; portflag=1 use USB port; portflag=2 use I/O port Quote:and there is also a new timer function in BASIC Where is that? I can't find it.

If you were going to buy a new one, go for the 89Ti instead. It's better than the 84 Plus SE, in my opinion. (Though I still don't like the new layout of the keypad.)

The TI-84 Plus and TI-84 Plus Silver Edition are expected to sell for around \$110 and \$130, respectively. You will need to check with retailers for specific pricing. Quote:I have an 89 series, I need an 83 series. Should I maybe buy a regular 83+? I'd buy the 84+ And look at this, there's a dayOfWk( function: Quote:Returns an integer from 1 to 7, with each integer representing a day of the week. Use dayOfWk( to determine on which day of the week a particular date would occur. The year must be 4 digits; month and day can be 1 or 2 digit.Last edited by Guest on 25 Apr 2004 01:07:54 pm; edited 1 time in total

 Posted: 25 Apr 2004 08:56:40 pm    Post subject: The descriptions for the 84 family of calcs say they're pretty much the same thing as the 83 family. So, if all you're going to do is program, I'd say go for an 83 Plus or something. (Cheaper, and it'll suit your purposes.) Of course, if you want to conform to the idea of having the latest and greatest, get the 84 Plus SE...
