Typing strategies?
« on: April 10, 2018, 02:09:10 pm »
I don't have TI-Connect, so typing solely on my calculator when coding giant amounts of code is difficult (I always end up with giant amounts of code in my programs, which may or may not be a good habit). Anybody have any suggestions?

Splitting your code into subprograms is helpful. You could have one subprogram that defines variables/sprites, one subprogram that runs the game, one that contains subroutines to render the game, etc, and of course the "main" program which sets everything up.

zStart is a wonderful tool as well. It has features such as jump to label and editing archived programs (so you don't have to worry about Axe's builtin backups). It can also reinstall itself and everything else after RAM clears, and has a beta build somewhere with a small font program editor.
