Question about non-TI filesystem extensions for TI BASIC files

Recommended Posts

I see that b99, bas, and xb are de-facto extensions for TI BASIC files in the world of modern OSes, with .xb being the obvious Extended BASIC.  But in what format are these?  Are they expected to be text files with BASIC/XB source, or TIFILES with program binaries?  Which is which?

Well, on the TIPI they can be host os text files or DV80 TIFILES. And it will convert them to PROGRAM image binaries if the LOAD DSR opcode is performed.

 

xbas99 from the xdt99 suite also uses them for the text form of the BASIC program in the examples, but any name can be used. 

 

Those are the only 2 places I've encountered these filename usages.
