Casio-BASIC
« on: October 12, 2010, 10:42:24 pm »
Here's the first part of my tutorial on Casio-BASIC for TI programmers. It deals with the text and I/O commands.

Nice to see you decided to work on this :D

Btw the TI manual is about 900 pages large, I think. It just doesn't come with the 84+ series. You need to download it online. The 83+ came with an extremly large manual explaining each commands, although not a lot of decent code examples. Hopefully maybe it could help people transition between both language. :D

Mine came with one, but that was an original black 84+, not an SE. i wish I still had it, but without it I would never have had my awesome 86, nor my nspire!

I'm planning a second version for Casio-->TI as well.

I realized that I forgot the output command! That's kind of important, even though it's pretty much useless in a final program.

EDIT: And I got the part about code locking wrong. Looks like I'm going to have to be more careful about what I write.

Er I am sure output can be useful in a program. See Illusiat series. You can make rather good games with it even if it's ASCII. You cannot use the 8th row of text, though.

The officially named Casio-BASIC Output command (represented by a little triangle that kind of looks like ▲) is slightly different than the TI-BASIC Output( command. When you use it, it will display the string "-DISP-" where the data is supposed to be UNTIL you press EXE, whereupon which it will change to the data. Then you have to press EXE again to return to the program flow. It doesn't look very nice and it's really useful only for debugging, as far as I can tell.

Oh ok I thought you were talking about the TI one. On Casio Output() is Locate. I tried writing in FX-9x50G BASIC before and remember messing around with it. I remember on the 9860G it was about 4x times faster than on a 83+SE, so much that I could do grayscale. The downside is that it doesn't support word-wrap, so to display 7 lines of text, you have to use 7 Locate commands.

Casio also included a command that they officially called the "Output Command" in the language. But yes, Locate is the Casio equivalent of the TI Output(. It's kind of confusing grammatically. Output( is Locate. "Hello World" is Disp. ▲ is its own little thing that's a cross between Pause and Disp.

Yeah at first I thought it had no text command like the TI output then I saw it was locate. And yeah I remember the triangle command.

One thing I hate about old Casio calcs is that insert mode is disabled by default and since on Casio, linebreaks disappears as you type stuff, it gets really annoying to type programs without accidentally erasing everything below.

That'll be good to know. I haven't experienced it yet, but I do know that TI's programming environment is much better. All of TI-OS is really much prettier than Casio's stuff. Whatever their code is like, they can design nice stuff.

Yeah and Casio BASIC is 20x slower than TI BASIC in some cases. It was not as optimized as on TI calcs I think, except maybe the Nspire. The cool thing about Casios, though, is the TI-85/86 style menus.

SLOWER than TI-BASIC! :o
 Is that even possible?

Yes. TI may not be that great, but Casio is even worse on that point. On a AFX 1.0, which has a 4 MHz processor, a For(Z,0,999):Disp Z:End loop ran 20x slower than a 83+SE and 10x slower than their calcs that had no flash memory/asm capabilities. The FX-9860G runs at like 83+ BASIC speed except Locate which runs about 5x faster but it has a considerably faster CPU.

Casio BASIC...
I've tried it before..
I used f(x)-9750(I think this is right model name)
I made text-based decision-making game before..and nothing else
Sig wipe!
