(Decided to move this topic I wrote at Gamedev''s General Programming Forom to the Console/PDA forom)Well, I have just started to develope software for my TI-89 with TI-GCC. Question: Who has a TI-89 and developes for it? Also, if you develope for your TI-89, do you use TI-GCC or the Texax Instrument TI-89 SDK? I find TI-GCC very nice. Not only can you develope in C, but you can also use it''s inline assembler, or just use the sand alone A68k assembler. I don''t know if anyone here developes for their TI-89, let alone has one. Anyone with TIGCC, I have a question. I would like to know if there is a TI-89 developer base here at Gamedev.net. If you do, can you please respond. The TI-89''s TI-89 Advanced Mathematics Operating System is real nice. Anyway, if you want more information on TI-GCC, just post back. Now, anyone with TI-GCC, I would like to know some things. First of all, can you explain to me what exactly TI-89 kernel based(DoorsOS) developement is, and how it differs from non-kernel based(NoSTUB) developement? One more Question. I also have a PALM IIIxe, and I believe that it also has a Motorola processor on the 68k architechture. I was wondering, since TI-GCC comes with a A68k assembler, can I use it to assemble programs for my PALM III xe also? Probably not, but just wondering. Codewarrior for PALM OS cost too much for me right now. Edem Attiogbe

i have a ti-92plus (same as 89, i know) and would be interested in more info on ti-gcc. i have written a few apps and games in ti-basic but never spent much time learning the assembly or ti-sdk due to lack of other calcs to test for link play.

i don''t think the a68k assembler will work for the palm. if i remember correctly from the assembly lessons for the TI i read, there are OS specific calls made. those memory locations on the TI and the palm probably differ and would cause a crash. not entirely sure and if you can prove otherwise, more power to you.

TI-GCC specifically can compile excecutables for both the TI-89 and the TI-92+ Advanced Mathematics Operating Systems using C. The assemblers assemble software for the 68k processors found in both the TI-89 and the TI-92+. Not sure about the TI-92. It should be ok, though. For information on TI-GCC, go to http://www.technoplaza.net and also http://tigcc.ticalc.org. Texas Instruments has a separate SDK for the TI-89, and I believe also the TI-92+. Go to http://education.ti.com for more info. Also, another good developer recource is http://www.ticalc.org.

I just hope TIGCC works under Win XP since I am upgrading my laptop tomorrow from Win ME. Also, about developing for a Palm IIIxe, your right. For instance, the LCD display for my Palm IIIxe will be located at a different memory location than for my TI-89, even though they both have cpu''s on the 68k architechture.

Can you program the ti-92+ in c on the calculator?

Yes Anonymous. TI-GCC is for the TI-89 & the TI-92+ They are both Motorola 68k calculators, which TI-GCC is for. hemp, I am not really familiar with assembler under the TI-89 & the TI-92+ I am trying to understand what exactly DOORS OS is. Can you explain it to me please?

I''m starting to develop for the 92+. It''s really easy since I already know C/C++. Ummm...I don''t really have a questin, but since it seems relevant I thought I''d just post for the heck of it

No, HTML is not an OO language.
