I had my doubts, so I ran this program using RXB2020 in Classic99. This pokes the values 1 to 24 to >8300

10 CALL LOAD(-32000,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,11,12,13,14,15,16,17,18,19,20,21,22,23,24)
20 GOTO 20

Using the debugger I could see that only the first 5 bytes were as expected; the others were different values.Not even Rasmus can write a useful assembly program on the TI using only 5 bytes.

Poking to the FAC at >834A yielded similar results - a couple of bytes were correct, but most were not.

So I cannot see how this would be useful on a TI99 without the memory expansion.


I was curious too. It looks like in some programs, at least, the buffer at >8398 might be good for 40 bytes. I ran a few tests with strings, prints and math and it wasn't overwritten. I'm sure it's needed for something, but it might be free in some cases... RXB2020E

I suppose we're kind of hijacking the 10-liner thread though... maybe we should move it over to the RXB thread if we continue. ;)


10 CALL LOAD(-32000+9*16+8,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,11,12,13,14,15,16,17,18,19,20,21,22,23,24)
11 CALL LOAD(-32000+11*16,25,26,27,28,29,30,31,32,33,34,35,36,37,38,39,40)
15 A$=STR$(1+1)&"HI"
30 GOTO 15
