DEMO-S is actually DEMO-S.txt

The .txt tells you this is a windows format file; not a TI format file. (although I don't think it's required, I always append .txt to a windows format file)

You can open this with a text editor such as Notepad, Notepad++ or whatever you prefer. You can make changes and when done save the revised file.

Classic99 must be configured so it can read and write windows format files. Here is how I have set it up for DSK1.

Now to assemble. Load the assembler (Not the editor-you don't need that!!!)

And that should assemble properly for you.

The DEMO-S is a relic from using the TI editor asssembler package where I used DEMO-S for source code and DEMO-O for object code. If I were redoing this I'd get rid of the -S and -O and make it simply DEMO.TXT and DEMO.OBJ

ty, got it working

But today I use variable names that are long as a winter in the north of Sweden (like linkTable[index].positions.adjust[index2] or folderAutomation.settings.usePerfCenter, cut from the last program I was working on), just because it's more efficient for me to remember what their purpose is, compared to if I call them A and B.

Real adventurous programmers use variable names like "Bob" and "Nancy." That is living, my friend :D

Dear Lee Stewart and dear RXB,

 

Excuse me for reacting so slow to your messages. I wasn't in the mood to comment on the statements of your messages the last days. Now I am going to comment on these statements:

I am not sure what exactly you mean by “modern day”, but I do not think I would put SAMS in that category. It has been around since the early 1990s.

Hmm the GRAM devices have been around longer then SAMS, Western Digital Hard Drive Controller has been around about same time.

Heck even the RAMDISK was around that time.

So even my stuff was way back in 1987.

 

Fortunately, in your profiles images of you are visible. On the basis of them I come to the conclusion that you are about 10 to 15 years older than me. So way back, in the mid 80's to mid 90's, you weren't any more pupils going to school, but already employees earning regular income. Hence you could easily afford every add-on part for the TI then. Additionally, at that time, peripheral parts for the TI could be obtained more easily in the States than in West Germany. Furthermore, I can remember that the price for an TI Extended Basic cart amounted to about DM450 (German Mark) or $158 (the exchange rate during that time period was about $1 for DM2.85) in 1984. A price I could never have afforded without the financial aid of my father. At last, I couldn't afford at all a PEB inclusive 32k RAM card and 1(?, or maybe 2?) internal floppy disk drive(s) (purchasing price DM1000) or a nine needles dot matrix color printer (DM1200) and a TI side port to RS-232 adaptor (DM150) (I hopefully recalled the purchasing prices from my memory correctly).

 

 

Regards

My challenge was not to whether you had or could afford a SAMS card when they were first available in the early 1990s but to your considering SAMS a “modern-day solution”, which I would not.
