So is ASM the flavor of the week? Why don't you actually settle on ONE language and do something useful with it. Jumping around from language to language isn't going to make you a better programmer. Ever heard of the expression: jack of all trades but master of none?

ASM in itself comes in many flavors based on the processor used. On the Texas Instrument calculators anything before the TI89 is Z80 ASM while the TI89 and greater is 68k ASM. If your have a TI89 or higher they actually have a C compiler that targets the processor.

Which calculator do you have?

The 83/84/85/86 all use the Z80
The 89/92 use the 68k

I have a TI-89 Titanium. I've never heard of a C compiler on it :confused:

Do I just write the C in the program editor? or do I have to change something first?

No, you have to compile the C program on your computer and then send it to your calculator.

If you have virtual TI all you have to do is hit F10 select your compiled app and that's it... simple.
