Help with TI-84+SE program uploading on a Mac
« on: March 09, 2013, 11:39:26 am »
Hiya all. I need help! I want to upload a program from my Ti-84+SE calculator to my Mac 10.6.8 computer but I don't know what to do! Can somebody help me?
I have a cable/cord to plug my calc in but I don't know what to do. The TI-Connect doesn't work on macs.
Somebody told me TiLP works, and I downloaded that but I don't know what to do with it. I don't have a clue how to install all the stuff to make it work. . .
Help please?   ???

Thank you!!! It really did work :w00t:

Now I just have to figure out how to get these TI programs saved as .8xp

Or, what's the most conventional file type for submitting a program? Is it .8xp?

I don't know, that is the format it is in automatically on Windows, maybe Matrefeytontias knows?

Oh, check the properties of it to see what its extension is. .txt files are "Text Document" and likewise, .8xp files are "TI Program"

I am not sure if there will be a problem with it. I don't think Source Coder will be able to open it. If it could, I would say you could open it with Source Coder and then resave it as .8xp. I don't know if simply changing the extension will work.

All this is really exposing my blatant computer incompetence isn't it. . .

SourceCoder lets you edit programs and whatnot on the computer and then save them as .8xp files, among other things. You don't need to download anything to use it.

Also, we encourage editing posts as opposed to double posting (unless of course it has been a while since the last post).

I got it to work!!! It was because I had saved it as a generic Ti program instead of a TI-83 program. THANK YOU!!! And, I'll never double post again, sorry about that.

It is fine :P Also, be careful as a TI-83 Program is a little different from a TI-83 Plus program. The former is stored as .83p and the latter as .8xp. If it was programmed on a TI-83, then you want .83p and if it was programmed on a TI-83+ or 84+, you will want it saved as .8xp.
