array test.bas - simple array test. (everything
changed when I learned arrays!)
airliner.bas - example program that
creates part numbers from user options. (see
button test.bas - demostrates yBasic
button2.bas - slight tweak of
HotPaw example program.
checkbox test.bas - an early checkbox
color test.bas - (experimental)
someone on the Yahoo Forum had a question
regarding color, so I whipped up this concoction.
it answered the question, but should only be ran
on a Cray.
datetest.bas - simple fn date$(-1)
and fn time$(-1) test.
db open and read test.bas - simple db open test,
as described in yBasic documentation. (i think...)
dbCreator.bas (experimental, results
may vary) - these next three db programs were an
early attempt at writing my own database programs.
currently I use DBOS for creating databases, but
thought it would be cool if I could use some
homemade software to do what DBOS does (and some
things it doesn't). Please be careful with these
dbEdit.bas (experimental, results
may vary) - see above for description.
dbKill.bas (experimental, results
may vary) - see above for description.
droplist.bas - very early, overkill
(alot of grafitti for a quick test) droplist test.
Eta calc.bas - an early "complete"
program that calculates time left for car trips.
find text.bas - simple test program
that demonstrates a cool fundamental of BASIC
programming. (computers treat text as numbers. ex:
"bob" equals "bob". "Bob"
does not equal "bob").
fld test.bas - an early "form
fld" test. Also demonstrates the famous
yBasic s$(0), s$(1), ... built in array.
Fonedecipherer.bas (could need a little
work) - a friend at work challenged me to write
this one. I think it works rather well, but
you'll have to give it a try.
iConfig.bas - template program that
creates part numbers from user options. Add your
own products and product options and your boss
will give you a fat raise!
iConvert.bas (buggy) - a lb/psi to
voltage/mA converter. I need to look at this
again because though it works fine for standard
ranges, when using unrealistic numbers, the math
gets squirlly. This was a very early program for
me, so I was excited just to see it work. (use at
lightcycles.bas (just started) - TRON
listbox test.bas - early, simple,
loop test.bas - some kind of
experiment, I think captures grafitti strokes
movetest.bas - primitive program
that scoots a word around the screen using
MakePRC.bas - tweaked from HotPaw
example program. Creates Palm PRC file that will
appear in your launcher. Needs yBasic to run
though. (see [downloads] for more on this
pen test.bas - simple pen test.
printarraytest.bas - some sort of checkbox/array/loop
PATC.bas - Palm Air Traffic
Control! Needs some work. Try to figure out how
it works and the basic commands from the code. If
you need more info, drop me an email.
Pixel convert.bas - simple pixels to
inches to pixels converter program. maybe useful.
could probably use some upgrading to include
other conversion factors.
quittest.bas - quit test program
that exits user all the way to the launcher
instead of yBasic. a must when writing PRC files
so that your software behaves like "other"
apps when the user is done with your program.
Quad.bas - quadratic formula
solver. (Also compiled as PRC. see [download] page on this website).
sub pass test.bas - simple sub routine
tickertest.bas - cool smooth scrolling
ticker test that I'm going to use in my next
Stock Market simulator.
timer test.bas - a gadget that tells
time, date, battery volts. shows my time
formatting technique, as yBasic only reports
system time as a number (ie: 132706 = 1:27:06p)
Temperature.bas - a nifty F to C to F
converter. Probably should go in the tutorial
Windchill.bas - an early program,
requested by my boss. Since windchill is pretty
fuzzy I don't care much for this program.
WTime3.bas (needs much sorting) -
I was in over my head when I started this one, as
this is a very early, complicated (I think)
program. I could probably get it right if I tried
it again, but as all programmers know, you gotta
