I have a few questions about programming the Nspire:

[1] Is it possible to print text to the screen?
[2] Is it possible to get input in the form of strings?
[3] Is it possible to make changes to the graph buffer without updating the screen, then update everything at once (kind of like BBC Basic's *REFRESH ON and *REFRESH OFF commands)?
[4] How do you detect arrow key presses?

1) you can instead of typing Disp, type Text eg: Text "Hello World!" will write that to the screen
also if you type ,0 after it you can hide it from the calculator history. Check ticalc.org basic misc programs for programming tutorials there is one in the making and it's quite good
2) if you mean ask questions using them and making the calc wait for a specific answer then yes. again this is in the programming tutorials on ticalc.org
3) ti-nspire has limimted graphing and programming functionially it is hard to get them to work together. I don't know about this one
4)ti-nspire can't so you can't create things like pacman unless you go into assembly code things like ndless (it's a bit extreme)

Resurrecting old topics (a.k.a "necroposting") is bad Wink
Nowadays, bwang programs in C with Ndless.

and prior to Ndless was nspire programmed in Mindless or was it Mindless to program nspire? I never could get that straight. Neutral
