Note

When upgrading a system to a new version of TrioBASIC and / or a newer controller, there are likely to be small changes required.  Whilst every effort is made to maintain backward compatibility of the TrioBASIC programming language, you may need to consider the following.

  • The faster processor speed may have an impact on the way multi-tasking programs interact. 
  • There may be some commands which now require extra parameters.
  • The original program may have been written using “illegal” command options that are no longer allowed.

In the majority of cases, there will be an alternative command or alternative way of structuring the program which will allow the programs to run under the new system software.

Such changes are usually minor. In almost all cases the operation of the fundamental motion software is identical. 

Experience shows that in about 98% of upgrades, there are no changes required to the programs.
