Thanks for those links and that new section, whoever did that. That's what we're hoping for: To have our users expand on what we provide them.

You're welcome ;)

That would have been me before I discovered that you could make a user profile :)
Thanks for the positive feedback!


83+ Link Assist

Please see Talk:83Plus:Ports:05#83+ Link assist. --Andy Janata 15:47, 21 Jul 2005 (PDT)

Perhaps it should be pointed out the difference between the link assist on the se and the link assist on the 83p. Since it's no longer the same(port 5 being the ram page on the se).--Jim e 20:13, 21 Jul 2005 (PDT)
Be bold! --Andy Janata 20:38, 21 Jul 2005 (PDT)
Very well I'll be bold, but don't blame me spelling errors :-P --Jim e 12:56, 22 Jul 2005 (PDT)

I don't know Wiki's enough to change it, but there's a conflict on this says a 1 bit keeps the line high, and the example at the bottom of the page says outputting 0 will set the lines high. (preceding unsigned comment by (talk • contribs) 09:17, 3 Oct 2005)

I think you have the read and write values confused. Writing 00000001b, for instance, causes line 0 to go low, which means you'll read 00010010b. If another calculator is connected to the other end of the link cable at this point, it will read 00000010b, assuming it's not driving the lines itself. Now if it follows the TI protocol it will respond to line 0 going low by pulling line 1 low, writing 00000010b, after which it will read 00100000b and our original calculator will read 00010000b. When both calculators release the lines by writing 00000000b, they will each return to reading 00000011b.
There's not that much you need to know about Wikis; the formatting commands can be a little... odd... but we get used to them, and anyway, you don't need to know them to make useful contributions. --FloppusMaximus 07:17, 3 Oct 2005 (PDT)
Indeed. Just try to present your information in some coherent form, and stick {{wikify}} somewhere in the article. Someone'll come along and clean it up. Andy Janata 04:46, 4 Oct 2005 (PDT)


One of the tutorials listed on the article page have conflicting stories to what is here. The writing of the port works (in both here and in the tutorial) but reading from the link port is wrong in the tutorial. Just follow what's on this page. (it says bit 2 is the tip when it's actually bit 0 and it says bit 3 is the ring when it's actually bit 1.) This may be because this tutorial is for the 83 not the 83 plus flash family. Just keep this in mind. (preceding unsigned comment by Dragon master (talk • contribs) 15:08, 13 May 2006)

Yes, the 83's link port is very different, and much uglier -- definitely the ugliest link port of all the Z80 models. I would imagine that's what you're talking about. FloppusMaximus 12:42, 13 May 2006 (PDT)
