try:

Locate 4,4,"some text"
0->K
While K=0
Getkey -> K
If K=79
Then ClrText
WhileEnd
Trying that gave me a syntax error on the last line...  ???

That looks almost JUST like TI BASIC!
I'm not worried about SOPA creating censorship, that will not stand for long. I'm worried that they'll succeed in stopping piracy!

An useful tool!

PM me if you need some help. I am glad to be of assistance and part of the TI Communnity.

They are similar, but I really feel TI-BASIC is the better programming language because of the ability to wrap strings around the screen, having the ability to check a certain part of a string (Casio-BASIC would need to extract the symbol from the string, store it into a seperate string and compare it with the comparison string) and the ability to use HEX codes to generate icons. Especially the last function got me jealous of TI-calc owners D: The fastest method of drawing a sprite on CASIO is storing the coordinates of the pixels into two lists and drawing them all using Scatter,List 1,List 2 (also with some other things before and after it I can't remember) and changing the V-Window settings to move the sprite around.

That's not an actual TI-BASIC feature. The program Doors CS makes it work when you open files using it, but in all other cases, you can't have an icon.

You can do that in a complicated fashion with the quotation marks (e.g. "String that is more than 21 characters long").  Just not with Locate.
... having the ability to check a certain part of a string (Casio-BASIC would need to extract the symbol from the string, store it into a seperate string and compare it with the comparison string
That is what StrCmp( is for.  Actually, I'm not quite sure what you mean here.

I find myself more challenged by Casio Basic.  It does seem a little bit more awkward sometimes.

On the casio you have to extract the part of the string you need with StrMid(, assign it to another string and then use StrCmp to compare that one with a "test" string that would contain the character you want to check. It's really obnoxious and slow so I don't use it.

What I have done several times for such a situation is
Code: [Select]
StrCmp(StrMid(Str #,<index>,<length>),"String")=0Where "String" is whatever I am testing for (either a string # or something like "A").  This would combine all of the steps and run much faster.  It is somewhat of a handful but it works.

I've been making some simple programs the last few days.  I made a snake game and a few others like that.  Recently, I've been working on more complex programs and have ran out of variables to use.  I tried to use matrices, and they're not really working.  I did what the tutorial said to, and it keeps telling me that i have a syntax error right after i say "Mat".  Could anyone give me an example of how a matrix would look?

I used to program some casio basic so here i can tell you (ps: it was for a 9850, should also work for 9860
eg for a 4x4 matrix: (EDITTED)  [[0,0,0,1][0,0,1,0][0,1,0,0][1,0,0,0]]-> Mat A
would create the matrix:
0 0 0 1
0 0 1 0
0 1 0 0
1 0 0 0

There is an additional square bracket at the beginning that is necessary.  In Jonius7's example it would start like [[0,0,0,1][0,0 ...
Also, pokemonrules9 do you know about the variables theta and r?  It took me a while to realize I could use them in programs and having those additional two can be useful.

Oh yes, i've forgotten about that. I've forgotten quite a lot of casio basic i once knew.
The way I learned Casio BASIC was to look at other people's games. I would download the cat file for 9850 and  open it in a word document. the code to type was readable. and i had to type it manually anyway, as i had no link cable. So when I typed Sean Tan's Star Wars game (about 20000 bytes) I managed to reduced it by 4000 bytes or so by using a list instead of a one column matrix.
