TI-89 Programming: Tips & Programs

In summary, the conversation is about finding resources for TI-89 programming. The original poster asks for recommendations, and another user suggests a Google search and provides several links to programming information for the TI-89. Another user mentions that the manual has some information on programming but it is limited, and the original poster thanks everyone for their help.

I know I've posted this topic before, but does anybody know of any good TI-89 programming tidbits or programs themselves?

Thanks

Yes, the manual has a section on programming but for some odd reason, it's like running into a brick wall. It shows you a simple example program but that's about it (at least to me it does).

But I haven't tried the Google search (Dogpile and Yahoo, yes, Google, no). Thanks for that recommendation.

Thanks J-Man for the links. I'm looking forward to learning more about how the TI-89 works (it has the programming capabilities but it's basically worthless if I don't try to use it).
