TI basic converter
« on: January 09, 2013, 02:59:50 pm »
Many more people have TI calcs than Casio, making it hard to find programs for it. It would be nice to convert TI basic to Casio.

He wants to use TI basic software on his casio, because there are not a lot of programs for the casio calcs.
If you like my work: why not give me an internet?

I get that, but what is the point of the post... Is he requesting something? Cause this just seems to be like a statment of fact/lamentation.

I think he's asking for some kind of compiler that you would feed TI BASIC and produces CASIO (language) files.

Some people need a high five in the face... with a chair.

He is suggesting a project idea. It would be nice indeed, although kinda hard, due to all the unavailable commands on one calc or another. Screen size might also be a similar issue as what will happen when running TI-83+/84+ BASIC graphics on a TI-84+ C Silver Edition. It would most likely still be feasible, though, or maybe there could be a TI-84+ emulator for the PRIZM.

Or maybe an Axe Parser to C converter or something.

There was a small early stages tutorial on how to manually port 83+ BASIC games to Casio BASIC, but I don't remember where it was on the forums.

With the screen issues, don't the casio screens have more pixels than the TI one?
Because then you could just leave it as it is and center it and maybe even make a border :D

The other issues with such a converter is that while something might be a good programming practice on TI, it might not be on Casio. This could lead to very slow programs. Some commands probably don't work the same either which could cause converted programs to act very strangely. Unfortunately, such a converter would be a pretty large task and would require a lot of work to even be somewhat viable. :/

Yeah that was the issue I meant. As for a border it is possible but there would still be issues with graphing and stuff dependent on ZOOM properties, since regardless of the resolution, if the window is set at -10 and 10 Xmin/max/Ymin/max, it would look as big, while stuff that is dependent on pixels like Text wouldn't.

Wait a second: What if somebody goes on assembling his/her own ti basic interpreter, then you just have to change like the first few bytes of the program and the file extention.

I wish I would take time to really learn C !_! I've been wanting to write something like this for the prizm  and I'm sure I could handle it. I just need to learn a decent language for it D:
