Should romcalls be put into only the most specific category, or should they appear in the parent category as well?--Dwedit 13:28, 28 Mar 2005 (PST)

They should be placed into both. We want a list of *all* bcalls/romcalls, but it's also nice to be able to browse by more specific type. So, for example, you would have something like this (pasted from the template) -

[[Category:83Plus:BCALLs:By Name|ProveTheRiemannHypothesis]]

and also

[[Category:83Plus:BCALLs:By Name|Utility|ProveTheRiemannHypothesis]]

And then a third category listing for the by address listing. --Dan Englender 14:22, 28 Mar 2005 (PST)

That'd be [[Category:83Plus:BCALLs:By Name:Utility|ProveTheRiemannHypothesis]]... *runs off to check the template*

Ick, I did goof that up... I fixed it. --AndyJ 15:57, 28 Mar 2005 (PST)

Would it be a good idea to use this nomenclature when talking about the calculator's memory?

  • "page" - 256 bytes of memory, usu. in the address range ??00..??FF.
  • "(memory) slot" - A division of logical memory used for memory banks (the TI-83 has four slots).
  • "(memory) bank" - An amount of physical memory that can be mapped in/out of logical memory through a memory slot.

There is also no standard for how code should be formatted. There are three articles in Z80 Routines, and all of them use a different assembler's syntax (bub_font: ZMASM, fastcopy: TASM, and itoa (arguably the finest of them all :-): WLA). --Sigma 14:30, 28 Apr 2005 (PDT)

"Page" is already in common use for a 16KB section of RAM or flash that can be paged in, so we shouldn't change that. Af far as formatting: oh well. All of us use different assemblers, and we just need to live with it, I think. --JasonM 15:56, 28 Apr 2005 (PDT)

To do list for this page:

  • Add info on creating an account and email confirmation
  • Add links to wanted/stub/missinginfo/etc lists
  • Organize/clean up so it's not as scary to a newbie

--Dan Englender 11:13, 21 March 2006 (PST)

Needs work

Add a brief to do list. Add a link to the wanted pages Add a link to recent talk (maybe?)

That's I though for now.
