I'm coding something on my TI-85, and in the ascii translation, one of the characters (or whatever you want to call them, commands, variables,etc) is called the special continue program line. Anyone heard of it before? Know aboot it?

well, == --> equal, != --> not equal, ~= --> sorta equal as I said before.

But I want the special thingy, not the double equals (btw if == is equals whats =?). Yeah, I need to find that key.

A '=' is usually used for assignment, as in "C = 2*pi*r". A '==' is a test for equality, as in "if (dino == human)".

yeah think of the == as two = signs looking at eachother and then looking at the things next to them and saying "Hey yeah, look, they're the same."

if it exists on the calculator, you will find it in the catalogue, which is one of the 2nd's.

What do you need it for, though?

and on a TI-85, == does mean "is equal to" and returns a boolean value 1 or 0 (5==6 displays 0, 5==5 displays 1). = is used to assign variables a value, though -> is much better at it, but = can also be used for subtraction (5=4 displays 1). Never use =

However, "not equals" is not !=, that is c++. not equals is really ≠, the regular not equal sign (5≠6 evaluates to 1) This is because = is subtraction. ! is factorial. So if you use != it wont be 1 or 0. It will be some integer (5!=6 is 114. 5! is 120, 120-6 is 114).

just stuff you should know about calculator proggin.

I looked in the catalog a bunch of times and i haven't found it. It doesn't have any letters in it, because the ascii representation for this key is \#\. I was trying to program pong on my 85 and that key is needed, but I got the code in a text format so I had to translate the ascii stuff into the 85 keys. Most of it was common sense, except for this one. I'm thinking it might have to do with this weird arrow key i have on my casio. It's not the store key, because I can use that on both calcs, but casio has an extra, almost u-turn key for ghetto-assembler. I don't think it exists in the 85, but the languages are rather close to each other so i don't know...
