Ok thanks, i'll use that first but i think after we succeeded in making the emulator, i'm still going to try to add a compiler and writer, it's just a little bit easyer

And does someone knows if there's an app where you can look into the code of another app?

What youre talking about is known as reverse-engineering, and there is no app that will let you view the code of another one.

There are, however, ways to determine what a program does. First of all, you need to jailbreak. Then, you need to learn objective c, c, arm assembly, and basic *NIX commands. Then, you need to get Class Dump Z from this repo. After this, you need to get a terminal client. Then, get BigBoss Recommended Hacker Tools and the GNU Debugger from Cydia.

Once youve done all of this, you will need to learn how to use utilities such as gdb, otool, strings, class-dump-z, and nm, among others.

It was I who was advocating the development of wabbit for iOS in that topic. I have an iPod Touch and an iPad, and am a developer who has used both C and Objective-C before. I do all of my coding on-device (with Textastic as my editor, iSSH as my console client, and gcc/clang as my compilers (I am the one who ported clang FYI)), so I can code much more often. Both of my devices are jailbroken, and I know more about this platform than almost anybody else (besides jailbreak devs and some app developers).

In short, I am willing to help write it and test it, but I don't know how well you know coding, and whether we could accomplish this.

We could build this off of the source of wabbit on android or mac, which would help out immensely.
Textastic is ipad only, is there another ipod editor?

Ok, i'm gonna start learning c++ now, one of my friends thinks all the script languages i "control" are to low leveled, he does only know: ahk, visual basic, c++ basis

I know html, css, php, z80 asm basics, ti84 basics, flowcode, engine001 scripting. Who do you think has the best till now?

An emulator is not a simple thing to code, especially for somebody who is relatively new to programming. I see that you've never used a low level compiled language besides some asm before. The closest there to c or c++ is php, but this is interpreted. I have no idea about the last 2 languages, as i have never heard of these. Im not trying to be mean, but there is no way that you will be able to make a ti83 emulator at this point. Maybe in a few years after learning c/c++ and using it so that you understand it you would be able to write this, but as for now, I dont see this being possible. Sorry, I'm just trying to save you the trouble. For starters, make a hello world app. Then work your way on up by printing out numbers from 1 to 100, every 3rd number in that range, prime numbers between 1 and 100, reading in a number/string and processing it in some way, then outputting a result, etc. After this, try doing something more advanced, such as writing a graphing calculator type program in the console, or even writing the classic Conway's Game of Life.

There is a lot of material to learn and absorb before you should try tackling a project of this size and complexity. Many people would be completely unable to do this.

Ok, sorry for double postig but i have a little progres on the emulator people, i do have to learn c first and then start easy but i think if i or someone else wants to continue this program thay maybe have some extra information with this http://www.ticalc.org/archives/files/fileinfo/247/24750.html
