tangrs contributed many months ago to the support of C++ for Ndless with a bFLT loader and patches for the toolchain. Unfortunately the vanilla elf2flt couldn’t handle all the relocations produced by the latest GCC for ARM, including those required when linking with nSDL, hoffa’s port of the Simple DirectMedia Layer library. I’m today excited to announce:
- Ndless SDK r825 (or higer) with C++ support and the new bFLT binary format for Ndless programs, which becomes the recommended format to use.
- Ndless r825 (or higher), required to run programs written with C++ and nSDL
- Ndless SDK YAGARTO/MSYS components r825 (or higher) for Windows users. Linux users can use the updated installation script to install and patch elf2flt required by the new bFLT format.
C++ and nSDL now offers interesting opportunities to bring nice software to the TI-Nspire calculator. I have personally tried a quick and dirty port of GDO’s Advanced Tetris: Porting a simple graphical program means remapping the keys, relaying out the display and other straightforward minor adjustments. Source code is provided for the curious. Get Advanced Tetris for the TI-Nspire!
