== The TI-BASIC Compiler
The TI-BASIC Compiler is all about compiling TI-BASIC code on your computer
into an 8XP file ready for transferring to your TI-83/TI-83+/TI-84 calculator.
Being able to type your programs instead of try and use the calculator's keypad
is much easier :).
== How to run the compiler?
For most situations, just "drag and drop" the text file containing your code
on top of the tibasic.exe file. A black window will appear for a split second
and you should have an 8XP file next to your text file.
If you feel comfortable using a command line, you can run tibasic.exe without
any arguments to get usage information.
== Important Note!
There are a few symbols that could not be directly transferred to the language and were replaced instead with simpler tokens. Also note some of these are 'shorthand' versions of supported tokens:
& --> 'and'
| --> ' or '
~ --> ' xor '
theta --> '[theta]'
powers --> '^' (for instance, 5 squared would be '5^2')
'e' constant --> '[e]'
Store --> '->' (same for such things as >DMS: ->DMS)
Roots --> '[root]^' (for instance, square root would be '[root]^2')
All Picture variables (Pic0 - Pic9) and String variables (Str0 - Str9) are CAPITALIZED (ie. STR0)
Other shorthand versions for more obscure functions exist, to find these the source code is viewable (Develop tab on the SourceForge page).
As a final note, all support requests must go to either the 'Support Requests' tracker on the SourceForge page, or email@example.com (the email method usually gets a reply within 24 hours). The trackers are checked often so you can be assured that your request for help will be responded to.
