I think it would be quite helpful if we started a list of common questions about TI 89 BASIC, it usage, tips and tricks, etc.
So here's a (short) start:
Q: How do you get the top menu bar to go away? A: You can't...sorry. Q: Can I wrap long lines of text? A: Not automatically, but you can by splitting the text into sub-lines. Q: What's the difference between the I/O screen and the home screen? A: The I/O screen is by default reserved for the Input and Output (I/O) of programs, while the Home screen stores the history of what you do in the regular TI-OS
NOTE: these are pretty brief answers, to be fleshed out later. also, i'm probably wrong on some answers, since i'm pretty new to ti89 BASIC. please correct me.
