I have a question: I got a book from the library about z80 ASM that was written in 1979. Would I still be able to use that for calculator ASM if I figure out the similarities? Because if I can I'd like to help you with DragonOS in any way I can.

Now that would be awsome. I wonder what kind of stuff they have in a book that old? I think the processor in the 83 plus is some different version of the zilog processor though, so I don't know if it would work (ask Jbirk, or its probably all over the DetachedSolutions forum)

Do you mean like where you would store the results in lists, and work the math mainly with for loops?
I tried creating a program to calculate pi in BASIC like that, but I eventually gave up. I just did in Java with BigDecimal, because that class does it automatically for you.

Isn't that too many digits? I thought the calc only remembered the first 14 digits of a number (from my own experimentation). How can you cram more into that small little 9 byte space?

um, to say the truth, come to think of it, i might have gotten that answer from my friend's comp as i was at his house without my calc (have no clue how i forgot it Razz)
anyways, i would be happy for all the help i can get. now that im learning asm, im starting to wonder if i should finish up the basic version or just go to asm. i thisk i should just go to asm though. dont forget to check out my forums! The DragonFire Forums keep in mind i havent changed the logo yet, as i got it from someone else. i plan to though, soon

its official, DragonOS will go to asm, pure nostub asm. maybe once we get an asm version done, we will go to an app, as to not hog program space.

The only thing that could POSSIBLY make that better would be some animation. Other than that, it looks amazing! Nice job.

I'm a taker! I might not be able to make a MirageOS emulator, but I can list programs, run ION programs, etc.

Grab it. How cool would it be to code ASM without any system routines. Cool

BTW, if you can use MD5 (now possible with asm) to encrypt the login password, security becomes as solid as Krolypto.

By any chance could i get an easy-to-print version of that? That would be perfect. Thanks!

Yes, bcalls aren't part of the Z80 so you would learn to make your own.

bcalls: small and slow

your own: the euphoria of having created a program without anyone's help, and the fact that it can run on any Z80 machine with a little graphics-related porting.
