HAL is a rumored program that allows you to write programs for the
TI-82 using a language similar to TI-BASIC, that then changes your
code into ASM. I was first informed of this beta program in the
TI-Calc Newsgroup and wrote to the person that mentioned using it.
The message follows:
I'll keep you posted as more information about HAL is released. If
HAL is anything like its 85 counterpart, which it most likely will
be, using it will create good ASM programs...but never great.
If you want to make a truly great game, learn ASM. Still, for those
who are too lazy or too accustomed to TI-BASIC, HAL should provide
an nice alternative.

So far the HAL beta is limited. The final version should be available
within two weeks, though. It'll be worth the wait.
