Can you write stuff for the TI-83 Plus calculator using C? If you can, how? I don't like assembly, but I like BASIC even less...[sad]

I belive that there is a way to convert c code so that it is usable on a calculator. but you will probably have to use assembly

There is TIGCC, but it is only for 68000-based calculators (89 and above). You'll have to learn assembly. Sorry.

z80 ASM isn't too bad. The ti83plus.inc file has tons of useful ROM calls, so it really isn't that bad. It is kinda weird how variables work, but that isn't too difficult to wrap you head around.

Still, it would be cool if someone made a C compiler for z80...

www.ticalc.org does list a c compiler called 8xcc (I think) but the latest version is from 1999 and listed as beta release 5, so perhaps it's a bit too beta and isn't going to be updated..

If thats the case, then take a look around gamedev.net. Somewhere there is some information about setting things up to allow you to program in a very C like style using some things such as asm macros.
