TiLP problem
« on: March 05, 2013, 09:22:30 am »
Some years ago I have written some programs for the TI-86. They are about Controls Theory and Bode, Nyquist e Nichols diagrams and can be found on my page:
http://digilander.libero.it/deathrider/calcolatrici/ti/ti_86.html

At the time I have trasferred it with TiLP and uploaded on the host ftp. Now I want to transfer them on the TI-86, so I have downloaded them but TiLP refuse to transfer!!!

Is there someone who have idea of the problem?
Is there someone who can try to do the transfer?

Well, you forgot to mention all of:
* the computer OS flavor;
* the computer OS version;
* the TILP version;
* the cable model you're using;
* an error message more precise than "TiLP refuse to transfer", if any.
Without such information, even the most hardened TILP users, or the TILP contributors and maintainers, cannot hazard a reasonable guess :)
TIA for providing those pieces of information ;)

I can, but not right now.

When I uploaded the files, I was using TiLP under a Linux with a serial RS232 cable. I do not remember the versions. Now I am using Windows7 with the latest TiLP version available for Windows (1.15) and a usb silver link cable. When I try to transfer my files it do not show a message. It simply do nothing. But I have test the transfer with another file: I downloaded "Blinded by the dark" game and it works really nice. I can even take screen captures. I suspect it is a problem in file format due to the transfer to/from the server: i remember that there are some differences between binary transfer and text transfer, ftp protocol and http protocol. I am investigating about this but not really sure.

PS: only now I realized that you are the developer of TiLP!!! Really thanks for your work!!

The latest release is 1.16, but it's more than a year old, and newer Windows builds with fixes and improvements are available, the newest one being http://ourl.ca/4010/332033 ;)

I haven't tried your files with my 86 (TILP HEAD, under Linux) yet.

I have upgraded to latest version. There are some problems with menus that do not appear. Not really important, I am able to try the transfer but it do not work. What appens is the same as the previous version: no message, no transfer. At the second or third try, the program will abort.

Heh, I've been fixing a number of crash-inducing bugs, but seemingly, more occur :)

Could you attach the ~/.tilp.log file generated by TILP II 1.16 onwards ? If there's no such file, it might be due to Windows not storing the file upon a crash, so try to exit the program before it crashes. TIA.

I made this:

1) Downloaded from calculator the file ROMDump.86p.
2) Opened my file CA86.86p with a hex editor.
3) Opened file ROMDump.86p with a hex editor.
4) Copied first 61 bytes (from offset 0x00 to 0x3C included) from ROMDump.86p to CA86.86p.
5) Transferred CA86.86p to calculator.

Coping the "header" of a file makes the transfer possible but executing the program on the calculator produces only errors. Probably the problem is related to compatibility with older versions of TiLP??

The random crash is fixed. It stems from the fact that libtifiles HEAD does, indeed, not understand the CA86.86p file (so it won't be transferred), which is not fixed yet - and in the error path, the content was freed a second time.

Thanks for the report :)

EDIT, EDIT2: so... the CA86.86p file is broken because the first packet has a size 0x0C, which indicates a padded file name... but no padding was generated. Modern versions of ti8x_file_write_regular() in libtifiles produce 86 files with proper space padding.

There are at least two ways to solve your immediate problem by fixing the broken CA86.86p file:
* add the appropriate number of padding bytes after the file name (making the file a more proper .86p file):
... F9 13 0C (should stay as is) 00 E9 13 12 04 43 41 38 36 20 20 20 20 (should be added) E9 13 E7 13 57 6E 58 ...
* change the packet size, and therefore the total data size, to exercise another code path that copes with non-padded filenames:
... F5 (change LSB of total data size) 13 08 (change LSB of packet size) 00 E9 13 12 04 43 41 38 36 E9 13 E7 13 57 6E 58 ...

While I'm at it, I'm adding several traces, reformatting the code and fixing more NULL dereferences, but I won't finish tonight.
