Calc Accessories
« on: April 15, 2009, 07:45:19 pm »
Are there any of these accessories available? (TI-84+ SE)

Speakers
USB to I/O adapter
Mouse
Charger
Extra memory that you can plug in (like a flash drive but for a calc)
Internet
Mods to the TI-BASIC language
anything that seems amazing for a calculator that you can come up with

I just want to see if calculator technology is that advanced or not
Then again, maybe not...

wow this usb stuff is amazing, i wonder if you could attach a higher resolution screen


for the usb to I/O i mean the mini usb head to I/O not the big one (if you meant the mini one then sorry but i think silverlink is the big usb to I/O)

and for mods to the language, i mean like new commands that you can access from the catalog, all of those use real(xx for commands
Then again, maybe not...

Well, old versions of Omnicalc actually made new tokens for the new commands... that was more trouble than it was worth, though.

also it appears to be faster with Real(xx. I remember the first two versions of Omnicalc ran twice slower or something. Also you couldn't even send the program using these commands to another calc or the computer unless they were grouped, not to mention programs often got corrupted

I think he was asking about the tokens that Omnicalc made for new commands that Calc84maniac had talked about

Omnicalc created tokens for its own routines using hooks. (messy hook iirc (or is the catalog hook?), wikiTI has the documentation) see the actual Omnicalc working to see what functions it implemented. Examples: playing music, math functions, sprite handling (somewhat like xlib), linking and others.
Yes, tokens are all the commands and characters you see in TI-BASIC.

I understood ti-newb, with some effort...

lol. it's hard to ask a question about tokens.. when i don't really know what they were. But i kinda guessed they were.. like the.. Commands?.. *im still not sure what they are.*

but i get what hooks are. Xlib uses them and basically most graphix prgms.
