Hold the freaking phone, its possible to use that language? HOW???????
edit: incase u can't tell, talking about Texas Instruments/Graphing Calculator language
Well, it's not the worst keyboard I've ever used...
boi thats not even a keyboard, if your thinking what I'm thinking its find the right button praise jebus theres a 2ND -> ALOCK button coding that makes no sense, I'm pretty sure (don't even know because i gave up) a for loop take 5 lines minimum.
Translation: Are you talking about using (for example) a TI84's prgm button? or are you talking about something else?

A For( loop does NOT take five lines.
It's the same number of lines as SmileBASIC:
FOR I=0 TO 4

I know some CSS and HTML (Like, I know how to make a Neopet custom page. XD)
I know some C.
I know some Java (~ish. More like C converted to Java.)
I'm beginning to learn Smile BASIC by porting some old BASIC program into it.

A bit of TI BASIC
C++ (the first language I got into)
A teeny tiny bit of python
A little bit of C
I know VHDL isn't exactly a programming language but it feels pretty close to one.

#52✎ 11HitomiHoshinoYou're all quite young. I'm over 40. I find Smilebasic quite nostalgic, but occasionally I like to play with emulators and look at actual old style basic and remember that not everything was better then. You just had to be able to use basic to even get any use out of a computer other than pre-done games. Which were often not that good.
I've played with alot of different programming languages. I'm not even sure what I have tried.
I am familiar with C, C++, Tcl, Hypercard, Livecode, Basic, Pascal, some assembly language, Lua, COBOL, bash, Visual Basic, C#, Java.. might even be some I haven't thought of.
My favorites right now are Lua, Livecode, and Freebasic. Having fun playing around with Love2D.
It's hard to stay on task and actually produce anything. It's easier to get lost in reading and discussions.

I've had about 5 years of experience now
I've used SmileBASIC (both Petit Computer and SmileBASIC)
I've done a good amount of C and can write in C++ too just because it's not that different.
I've done some Python but Python sucks so I haven't done too much with it.
I haven't done anything too extensive with HTML/CSS, but I know enough that I can make something with the help of the interwebs
Essentially the two main languages that I do stuff extensively with is SmileBASIC and C/C++

#57✎ 35cujo1992Wow - this is fascinating to read.
I am among the "old bunch". I will keep my specific age obfuscated - but my experience will give you clues:
- I first programmed in BASIC on a fancy Apple II computer in elementary school. It was great fun to write
10 print "something inappropriate"
20 goto 10
.... and then walk away from the computer.
I then got my first home computer: An ATARI 800. I programmed lots of CRAPPY GAMES on the BASIC on that system... including a bad side scrolling game with a giant lobster. (It was really bad)
In high school I programmed in PASCAL (still fond of it). The class was boring to me so I wrote a version of "Sky Diver" from the ATARI 2600 days. The teacher gave me an A and didn't make me take the final. (All of my classmates were playing the game instead of doing homework... we had 5.25in disks to pass around)
In College I learned 68000 assembly code. We had an assignment to write a program to play the "pick from 23 matchsticks" game. He gave us the algorithm to implement so it was about learning/executing syntax. I added code to randomly insult the human player... which was amusing to my fraternity brothers but required a lot of explanation to my professor. (He didn't see the humor in it...)
After college I dabbled in web design, PERL, JAVA... but didn't keep up with the old days. I had colleagues that coded in C/C+/C++/C# etc... but alas this was not my calling. Emails, project meetings and other real-world stuff pressed coding to the background...
SMILEBASIC has allowed me to rekindle some old creativity deep in my soul. The results far exceed my expectations... imagine how cool the stupid lobster game could have been if I had grown up in a different decade.
thanks for reading

I would say yes, since it is Turing Complete.
