Does anyone out there know how CALL LINK is used in XBASIC? The info I
got when I called TI appears useful, if somewhat cryptic. According to them,
this is how it is done:
0. CALL INIT
1. Enter the program into the Low Expansion RAM with successive
CALL LOAD statements. This example is to direct-load a program,
as opposed to using CALL LOAD with a file-name.
2. Enter the following:
In hex: CALL LOAD(8314,0,"",2004,3F,F8,"",3FF8,50,4C,4F,54,20,20,27,14)
3. In the program, this is accessed by CALL LINK("PLOT",96,I,S,C),
I,S,C are the parameters passed to the "PLOT" routine.
The stuff entered into 3FF8-3FFF is the program name(in this case PLOT with
two trailing spaces to fill out the name), followed by the starting address of
the program[The 27,14 or h'2714(dec 9992)].
Can anyone tell me what is in location h'8314? My E/A manual just says
"system usage" or some such.
