TxTRider v1.0b - Versatile Text Editor
Posted by Nick on 31 July 1999, 19:14 GMT

Marc Teyssier has created a versatile program, TxTRider v1.0b. It is similar to the text editor available on the 89 and 92+. It is also for the 89 and 92+, but it is a text viewer rather than an editor. It does, however, have many added features such as supporting pretty print, pictures, and different formats such as bold and underline.

Which calc is this for? 85? 86? 83?

The news article has been changed, so that you can now see that it is for 89/92+.

There's a version for both the 89 and the 92+. The 92 shot is pictured (as evidenced by the larger screen). Sorry about that :)

I just downloaded this program, but everytime I send it to my 92+ with the Graphlink I get checksum errors and I am sending the 92+ format files to my calc. Has anyone gotten this program to work on a 92+?

Re: Re: TxTRider v1.0b - Versatile Text Editor

Yes,I think riderhelp.9xt is corrupt...
One thinh u can do is to send this file to the emulator, then, send it to your calc from the emu : it should work !(this what i did)

I do not have a 92+, but I do have an 89. One reason for this error is that your batteries are low. But if sending from an emu worked, don't worry about it.

Re: Re: Re: TxTRider v1.0b - Versatile Text Editor

That same thing happened to me. I got soooooo frustrated that I uninstalled graph link. And reinstalled it. Don't do what I did, just get new batteries. This is on the topic, if I hear people saying I lose topic, I don't. You should get Virtual Ti and since the 89 has a built in ROM Dump, then use that and you will NEVER have to worry about it again and it sends files to Calc faster since it is on the Computer (virtual TI)

Re: Re: Re: TxTRider v1.0b - Versatile Text Editor

Just open it and then save it in your TI Graph-Link. No need to worry about emulators...

Does ticalc staff hate Bryan?

I am just asking one question, do you guys hate Bryan or something? I see that every comment he adds, even if it is constructive, is deleted. Why?

I am just answering one question. That means I don't want to see a big expanded thread about this.

The constructive comments are removed because they no longer make sense (if Bryan suggests to add a border to the screenshot, it does not make sense to leave his comment there after we add the border - people would think he's an idiot). I believe that those are the kind of comments that were removed from these articles (to my knowledge).

Re: Re: Does ticalc staff hate Bryan?

So why wasn't the first post removed? That error (failing to say what calc it was for) was fixed. BTW please remove this IF AND ONLY IF the first post is deleted.

That post asked what calculator it was for, and so we answered it after we fixed it. The post did not say, "This news system sux, it doesn't say what calc it's for." Those kind of posts are only marginally constructive and have no place once the problem is fixed.

"ryan crick"

Kirk, who aro you refering to when you write "we"? I thought you retired from news editor and ticalc in general. "You don't work here anymore"! (Hopefully you will someday, though...)

Checksum Errors

I have tried EVERYTHING to send the riderhlp.89t to my 89. I've replaced batteries, everything (I can't get the emulator to link-up working). The Graph-Link software still gives me a checksum error. Whenever I try and open up the riderhlp.89t on the emulator, the calc locks up and I have to force quit (ESC-On). What the heck is up?


     3 August 1999, 02:15 GMT

Re: Checksum Errors

Okay, I still couldn't get it to send to my calc so I ended up opening riderhlp.89t in Notepad. I took out all the 's and then I ran the Txt-to-89 thing. I then sent it to my calc and it worked. Took a while, but hey, I was bored :)

All you do is open it in the TI-Graphlink Software and save it again! No need to do all that extra work!

Messed Up

I have successfully sent the text editor program to my TI-89 calculator. However, whenever I attempt to open any text files with the editor, it just displays a bunch of junk that is not legible! Can someone please help me?

     10 August 1999, 03:35 GMT

Re: Messed Up

I think that you have a bad version of doorsos..or maybe you're using a bad shell ?

you should re-install EVRYTHING in your ti89 : shell, libraries, ...etc...& txtrider.

BUT, NOW ANSWER ME : wherhe is PPRIDER ???
