This tutorial will show how to display a line on the graph. Compare the speed of an Asm program graphing the line to a TI-Basic program doing the same thing. You'll be surprised!
Follow along now, this is definetly not hard :)
#define B_CALL(xxxx) rst 28h \ .dw xxxx #define B_JUMP(xxxx) call 50h \ .dw xxxx _op1set3 =41a1h _vertcmd =48a9h .org 9D95h B_CALL(_op1set3) ; Opl1 = 3 B_CALL(_vertcmd) ; Draw vertical line at Y = 3 ret .end END
As you can see, the line was drawn lighting quick, almost in a blink of an eye. That's the power, advantage, and speed of Asm! Op1-Op6 are floating point variables. It's called "OP1 to OP6" because it is used as 6 registers each 11 bytes in size. Therefore when you read documentation that refers to OP1, OP2, OP3, OP4, OP5 or OP6, what is meant is the 11-byte "register". The size of each of these registers is driven by the fact that the TI-83 Plus has a floating point number format of 9 bytes and any var name also can be formatted into at most 9 bytes. The 10th and 11th byte in each register is used during floating point math execution. Floating-point number and variable formats are explained in another section. Understanding the use of this area of RAM will expand your ability to use TI-83 system routines.
We will get into more in depth graphing in v1.02. This tutorial was meant to introduce you to graphing.Tutorial 12
