    The orginal goal of this project was to make a smarter & powerfull(er) serial com to my Canon X-07 (by adding support to UARTs & uSDCards).

    It 's now happening ...

    And I hope some other ideas will come soon....

    It look nicer now !

  • Added String variables support

    As original TinyBasicPlus implementation doesn't support STRING variables,

    I started a little-experimental support for those.

    I added 4 string vars. $1 to $4 (I know : it's not the casual formalism for BASIC string values, but it was simplier to modify the interpreter by this way... maybe later, will do better)

    So I can now transform my little board into a notepad, typewriter.. or simply displays what user inputs...

    (GitHub is up to date...)

  • Started Mainboard & enclosure

    Today, I made a mainboard (to replace my breadboard layout) & started to build an enclosure

    I used a mono-layer perfboard & some DIP socket in order that each component can be replaced if broken....

  • Added User Interactions

    Today, I added 3 user buttons to the board (UP,DOWN,OK)

    Then I improved my shell with 3 new functions :

    • KEY() that returns the state of the 3 btns (1,2,4)
    • LCCLS that clear the LCD
    • LCPRINT <lineNum>,<expr> that prints a line on the LCD

    So I can now create some simples menus :)
