The Axe Parser Project / Re: Evaluate TIOS expressions?
« on: November 28, 2015, 07:31:04 am »
No worries, my HP 50g is shipping Monday, and hopefully I'll never have to deal with TI-BASIC again.

Maybe I need a desktop editor? Is there a TI-BASIC small font editor on calculator?

I tried writing an integral graph program, but didn't quite finish. Float axiom won't exactly work, since it requires hard-coded math.

Is there any way to evaluate expressions using TIOS's math engine in Axe?

I hate TI-BASIC and would like to use anything else if possible. Any other language suggestions?

Tried your turnOff BCALL.

As soon as it turns off, the calculator becomes extremely unstable. I tried rerunning password: 1 time it hung, one time it did nothing. After it did nothing, I tried opening editor with Axe hooks enabled, it crashed.

NO. I wanted to turn the calculator off such that ZStart will relaunch the program when it turns back on. Not to skip the password prompt. That's trivial.

Anyway, how do I disable peripherals and halt?

I have an Axe password protector I programmed with a special feature involving a BCALL.

Any suggestions on how to turn it off in a way that ZStart will still run when the calculator turns on?

That means no "make the calculator think it's low on battery". That results in an APD, and the next time the thief turns my calculator on, it will no longer be locked.

Alternatively, is it possible to suspend my program until the ON button is pressed, to save power without having to deal with ZStart not running or RAM leaks?

OK I'll look into graylib.
How do I get many-level grayscale? I currently have two 4-level's I switch between every other frame, creating a period of 6. And it turns out I currently have 7-level grayscale using only 3 buffers, which is the maximum possible with a period of 6. Yay!
Is it possible to do even better, say even more colors? Will it flicker horribly?
How do I minimize flickering, with, say 7-level? As in distribute the "pulses" to maximize "frequency", so it's not on for 3 frames and off for the next 3, but instead switches every other frame? I'm not sure how my current solution behaves regarding pulse distribution.

yeah what a waste of forum space really.

I toy around with Axe, and wrote "2048 jimbo1qaz edition" for ti-8x.
I also wrote an unreleased rather bad Mandelbrot rendering program in axe.

How do I get 3/4-level grayscale to not flicker? Interrupts?
If I use both at once, how do I get it to not flicker?
What is recommended way to get higher-levels grayscale?
