Nspire Text Viewer
« on: August 30, 2010, 12:41:16 pm »
This is a small project I made for personal use, but I'll post it here anyway in case someone finds it useful.
It displays a text file in the Examples directory (any file with name of the form *.txt.tns). You can scroll down through the file, but not up :(
To use, find a text file, rename it with a .txt.tns extension, and send it to Examples. Then run the program and select the file from the list.
The program is Non-CAS only, since there are no CAS symbols for the directory listing functions yet.

Some sort of Notepad for Nspire?
In case you are wondering where I went, I am still active in the TI community, but I left Omni back in 2015 for various  reasons. I might come back one day, depending of certain circumstances, but my new online home (despite me being Omnimaga founder in 2001) is now CodeWalrus ( https://codewalr.us ). Sorry for the inconveniences.

Not really. No editing :(

Whoops, I meant Non-CAS only :-[

Well, in that case, I'll try it out as soon as I'm done with my homework. :

Btw, if you need a text editor for the Nspire and you have the computer software, I have found it easy to copy and paste the text into a notes page and edit it from there.  Sadly, this is almost impossible to do if you don't have the computer software.

The notes app is slow for long files - I'm talking about stuff like 500KB game walkthroughs :P

Yeah, that is true.  I used it to store text files I might need for school (I once used it to store the text of an essay that I could not lose at all costs, if I lost my hard copy, I still had the calc :)).  Still, using you program will probably be much easier.  Now, for Ndless 2 to be released so I can use it in school... :)

eh, its not an editor, just a viewer, so it cannot replace the notes app yet.
I'm working on it :D

I know, but for what I use the Notes App for, I never have to edit, only view. :P

A rather unfortunate drawback of this viewer is it only scrolls down :( I'll need to make some moderate code changes to implement scrolling up.
nice job!

I'll post some as soon as I get back to my computer.
EDIT: Ninja'd by apcalc! Thanks apcalc! Now I don't have to walk back to my dorm :D
