In this episode, we kick off the first installment of a series about using assembly language on the TI-99/4A. We explore concepts of what assembly language is, numbering systems, addressing modes, and have a peek at moving data around with the operations MOV (move word) and LI (load immediate).
In this video, we cover the following:
Assembly language in general, its capabilities and difficulties
Using the E/A cartridge, floppy disks, and interface
Understanding numbering systems and ASCII characters
Looking at memory and storing things in it
Example of moving data & displaying text
Assembling & running your program
