Prgrammable PDAs

Recommended Posts

You can write programs for it using c, c++, basic and a load of other languages. there is no lack of PDA software, there are plenty of programming tools ie interpreters and compilers

TI''s Basic language sucks, by the way (not to mention it''s God-awful slow).

The only good way to program a TI calc is with assembly language, and that makes it less useful.

Sure, it''s okay for writing math functions (which is what it is intended for), but don''t ever try TI-Basic for interactive games (although I did make a playable bomberman clone for TI-83).

I actually think PDAs are superior for their programability. Then again, they are inteded to be versatile machines, not just calculators. They''ve even got programs like Quake running decently on a PDA. Try and do that on a calculator, even the TI-89 or TI-92. It just won''t happen.

What I really want is a full-fledged math program for PDA so that I can drop my TI-89 completely. Does anyone know of a good CAS program for either PalmOS or WindowsCE?

If not, that''s a great idea for a project.
