Hum... Just tried Mimas. It's the first in-calculator Asm( developper, right?

Or are there more?
It's the first competent one :P
Says the guy that wrote two programs with a "non-competent" one that are on my calc. (Greyscale Tunnel and XtraVar) :P

Lol, nice job leaving out your own assembler ;)

No, it's the first competent one written in assembly.

Most C compilers are written in C ;)

now that's just silly :P
Hmm, someone should attempt to make a BASIC interpreter in BASIC (with DCS's help of course)

Lol Quigibo XD

I think someone tried to write a BASIC interpreter in TI-BASIC before. There was also an alternative language interpreted using TI-BASIC that was about 3 times slower than TI-BASIC, but 3 times smaller.
In case you are wondering where I went, I left Omni back in 2015 to form CodeWalrus due to various reasons explained back then, but I stopped calc dev in 2016 and am now mostly active on the CW Discord server at https://discord.gg/cuZcfcF

Now that I know a little basic, I'd like a help from you guys. Using Mimas, I can program Assembly in calculator...

Is the syntax EXACTLY the same as in computer?

So...

Code: [Select]
#include "ti83plus.inc"
.org 40339
.db t2ByteTok, tAsmCmp

VariableNameTest .equ 666
ThisIsZero .equ 0
B_CALL _ClrLCDFull
ld a, VariableNameTest

add a, ThisisZero
ld h,2
ld l, 154

B_CALL _DispHL
B_CALL _getKey
B_CALL _ClrLCDFull
ret

I could do this?

EDIT: When I type this:

VariableNameTest .equ 666

it gives me 'UNKNOWN FUNCTION'

Use '=' instead of '.equ'. :)  Mimas doesn't support '.equ' yet. :D

That works better, but when I compile this:
Code: [Select]
VAR = 666
OTHERVAR = 0
BCALL ClrLCDFull
ld a, VAR

add a, OTHERVAR
ld h,2
ld l, 154

BCALL DispHL
BCALL GetKey
BCALL ClrLCDFull
ret

And compile it, I get:

Code: [Select]
Error

Argument 029Ah out of range

I have no idea what this means :S

VAR is 666, which is a 2-byte number. A is only a one-byte register, so you can't load VAR into A.

EDIT: 2222th post!

1. Deep Thought, you have 2222 posts hahaha
2.
Code: [Select]
#include "ti83plus.inc"
.org 40339
.db t2ByteTok, tAsmCmp

VariableNameTest .equ 666
ThisIsZero .equ 0
B_CALL _ClrLCDFull
ld a, VariableNameTest

add a, ThisisZero
ld h,2
ld l, 154

B_CALL _DispHL
B_CALL _getKey
B_CALL _ClrLCDFull
ret

This works in the computer, though.

3.
Code: [Select]
VAR = 666
B_CALL _ClrLCDFull

ld HL, VAR
B_CALL _DispHL
B_CALL _getKey
B_CALL _ClrLCDFull
ret

What about this?

Code: [Select]
#include "ti83plus.inc"
.org $9D95
.db t2ByteTok, tAsmCmp

VariableNameTest .equ 666
ThisIsZero .equ 0
B_CALL _ClrLCDFull
ld bc, VariableNameTest

add c, ThisisZero
ld h, 2
ld l, 154

B_CALL _DispHL
B_CALL _getKey
B_CALL _ClrLCDFull
ret

anything over 255 is a 16 bit number, and requires a 16 bit register.  BC is a good one to use when not using HL or DE.  And, you can't really use AF much for that type of thing.  So BC == good. 

To add to BC, you can add C and that zero var, which (I think) conserves more space like a byte or two and is faster.  C is the small byte of BC, so when you add 1 to that, BC is equal to old BC plus one.  When you add to B however, BC is equal to old BC plus 256.  that is because B is the high byte, which takes care of the numbers higher than 255 for the BC register.  You may want to study this a lot and get it down before going too much further though, and I'm sure that hot dog's tutorial will explain it better than me.

To add a one-byte number to and register pair, you need to use a. (add c,NUM is not a valid instruction)
Here's an adaptation from a routine to add a to hl:
Code: [Select]
ld a,num_to_add
add c
ld c,a
adc a,b
sub c
ld b,a
This takes care of carry and everything.
Also, what register you use should be determined by the circumstances (like what routines you will be calling, for example, or what instructions are valid).
