Hello everyone!

 

I'm new to the forum, but have been programming my Ti-99/4a since the mid-80's.

 

Recently I moved to a Windows-10 based laptop, and find NotePad / WordPad a bit frustrating to use when writing assembly programs -- in particular, managing the tabs!

 

Can anyone recommend a replacement for these?  I'm curious as to what others are using.

 

Thanks in advance,

Willie

I don't program in a non IDE environment, so I can't give you a good answer, but I would think that something like notepad++ would work. I do believe their is an added benefit to using NP++, someone here in the past has posted a plugin for NP++ to know your dealing with assembly, I believe.

I can definitely recommend Sublime Text, although it is quite expensive...

IntelliJ IDEA community edition with xdt99 plugins.

 

It provides syntax highlighting, jumping to labels, renaming labels, etc. And it's free.

I use Textpad myself, I like it because I can set it up with a syntax file so it highlights all my assembly operands.

 

You can use Textpad for free pretty much indefinitely, it just pops up a registration reminder once in awhile, but I bought a license for $30 because it's a good product and I want them to make some money on it.

Notepad++ for me!  I have used it extensively to write the TMS9900 Assembler and Forth code for my fbForth 2.0 cartridge (see below).

I just use Windows Notepad, works fine. 

Tried others like Notepad ++ but I do not need 3000 features I would never ever use.

Notepad ++ also has a TI-99 XB and Assembly Language file so it will detect syntax for both.

Notepad++ works well, and is free. You can get gVim (vi editor) if you are old school. You could try Atom, too, it's what the cool kids use nowadays. Also Eclipse. and then there is the WUDSN project here:https://www.wudsn.co...de/installation

 

*edit*

Err, WUDSN is Atari, not user if it has support for TI stuff.

If you want to program exclusively on the TI, you can use  F'WEB and one of the text-to-program utilities.
