BatLib officially released
« on: March 13, 2011, 03:16:55 pm »
BatLib has been officially released a few days ago. is an App aimed at programmers of all skill levels. It includes 92 commands that make programming either easier, faster, or just plain possible. There are sprite commands, sound commands, string commands, reading from archive, data manipulations, and even a programming language! v4.00.92.43. Here are screenshots of the included hybrid BASIC demo programs:

This looks amazing! And in the nick of time too. I can definitely use this in the Programming Contest. :D

Spoiler For IMPORTANT NEWS!:
Late last night, Quebec was invaded by a group calling themselves, "Omnimaga". Not much is known about these mysterious people except that they all carried calculators of some kind and they all seemed to converge on one house in particular. Experts estimate that the combined power of their fabled calculators is greater than all the worlds super computers put together. The group seems to be holding out in the home of a certain DJ_O, who the Omnimagians claim to be their founder. Such power has put the world at a standstill with everyone waiting to see what the Omnimagians will do...

Wait... This just in, the Omnimagians have sent the UN a list of demands that must be met or else the world will be "submitted to the wrath of Netham45's Lobster Army". Such demands include >9001 crates of peanuts, sacrificial blue lobsters, and a wide assortment of cherry flavored items. With such computing power stored in the hands of such people, we can only hope these demands are met.

In the wake of these events, we can only ask, Why? Why do these people make these demands, what caused them to gather, and what are their future plans...

If those screenshots are full speed on a Ti-83+ Normal, I can't believe my eyes

Well, I can't believe them anyways

Sorry, I was away for a while, but if BASIC programs are executed at 6 mhz, then yes, that is the same speed on a real calc :D

Also, if anybody has any requests for additions that could help in the programming competition, I might be able to help out!

Yeah, this looks really fast!  I can't believe this is interpreted code! O.O

Hehe, I think it helps that there isn't too much in the way of error checking :D

So, how crash-prone is it right now? and how bad are said crashes? (assuming you avoid using plain hex)

Oh, now I see why that was fast: You use your own intrepreted language!  Another +1!

Yep, as I understand it it's essentially another xlib, right?

Well as long as you input the correct syntax, it should not crash and sometimes even if you mess up the syntax it isn't that bad. But to give you an idea, the If you use End out of place, the parser jumps to a random spot in memory and might possibly crash (like if that random spot pointed to some outrageous code like AsmPrgmC7). But that being said, the syntax is pretty loose. For example, instead of doing:
Code: [Select]
If A=3
Then
Line(0,96,0,9,2
DispGraph
End
you can do:
Code: [Select]
If A=3
Line(0,96,0,9,2 DispGraph
which is just a space separating the two commands :D

Actually, what I mean is she created her own basic-interpreter, not just another lib

Although BatLib itself is like a giant version of xLIB, the ReCode command itself is a whole new interpreter, not a parser hook.
