Weird BASIC Glitch or error or something like that
« on: April 12, 2010, 07:03:10 pm »
Okay, I was trying to purposely make a program larger than ram. So what I did was to make a super long string until the ans variable is biggest and paste it into the program. I used 'F' because it's 2 bytes :P
If you see the screen shot, during the second paste, the calculator pastes in other tokens, seemingly randomized. I am guessing these are random hex tokens? I first found this out on calculator. There's no way to stop this unless you take out the battery, which causes ram clear. Leaving it for like 5 minutes, the calculator turns off, then when you turn it back on, it gives you ram clear.

Usually, I thought that what you are trying to paste is larger than the program can support, it doesn't let you paste, but I guess in this case I was wrong. May be because I was trying to paste string, not program?

It just baffled me, so just throwing out there. And I backed up all my stuff before doing this, because I knew something bad might happen  :P It only gave me ram clear, so... I guess it isn't too bad

Huh, I just tried it and it didn't happen to me. I just ran out of RAM and it stopped and put the dotted pattern for the cursor. I'm on a 84+ though, if that makes a difference.

I did this on TI 84+ SE OS version 2.43...
May be it's only for TI84+SE?
Or may be, it's because it doesn't have extra ram (my hardware doesn't have the extra ram, because it was made later than others)

Hmm, odd. Someone else should try it with the 84+SE.

I tried it on wabbitemu with a TI-84+ SE ROM running 2.43 and it didn't work, although it was acting a little strange.

Strange I don't think I ever experienced this before. I had a similar thing happen with an old version of MirageOs or Omnicalc I think (maybe the Entry menu) but never something like this done without ASM. What program did you ran on your calc before this happens? I also hope you didn't lose anything x.x

It could be a 84+only bug. I can,t try since  I don't own a 84 and I don't feel like trying on my Nspire (which would require me to take out the keyboard, remove a battery, then put them back since it has the power managment bug on OS 1.1

I first backed up all the files, archived all the programs in ram, then I did this. I was purposely experimenting with this thing, to see what will happen. And tada! this happened X.X I didn't lose anything (was prepared for all memory clear, but it only gave ram clear)

Did anyone try it on regular 83+?

I haven't tried it yet but I got a bunch of stuff on my calc, so idk if I will right now. I used one for almost 9 years, though, and never had this happen, even if I Rcl'ed a lot of large stuff before. In my case, it always stops pasting stuff when I run out of RAM and I see a checkered patten cursor.

Ya, I tried on a 83+ and nothing happened. Just the same checkered pattern for the cursor.

So only Builderboy's and mine did this. ???
I guess it can't be extra ram pages tho, because I did it in wabbitemu (I can't run TI-Boy on calc, but I can on wabbitemu so wabbitemu has extra ram pages)
May be it's the ROM file on 84+SE?
Although for some reason it didn't happen to Eeems' and ACagliano's...
