Evaluate TIOS expressions?
« on: November 27, 2015, 06:23:05 am »
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?

Maybe you could create a temporary program and let the OS execute it and then fetch the results of Ans?
If you are only looking for specific things, there are a lot of floating point bcalls in the OS

If you're doing a lot of math, BASIC actually is a pretty good language to use. But if you only need a little bit of it and still want to use Axe, jacobly's floating point math axiom might be useful. It doesn't evaluate expressions as text; the functional format it uses may be a bit cumbersome, but it does avoid the interpreter overhead that way.

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.

there is a zstart version somewhere which comes with a small font editor, iirc it doesn't work with a mathprint OS, though
