Re: How did you discover SwissMicros?

I started using programmable calculators in the late 70's (Ti58). Just before passing my Baccalauréat in the early 80's, I was offered an HP41(C?) and felt in love with RPN programming! I don't have it any more... Then, during my Engineering School I switched to Sharp Calculators with Basic programm...

Re: [DM15L M1B V25] DIM error when > 99

It's a limitation that hadn't been documented. The amount of patching of the ROM required to cater for a number of storage registers with 3 digits is... err... significant because everything that relates to a register number looks at the same fixed size piece of data to find the boundaries of the a...

Re: [DM41L] memory/register usage does not match HP41C (?)

Don't type the final END. It's not needed if this is the only program in memory. Doh! Wish I had thought of suggesting that, and this is not even the first thread with a program so tight that it could not fit with the extra END. Thanks for entering it to find out the cause. OMG!!!!! You nailed it! ...

[DM41L] memory/register usage does not match HP41C (SOLVED)

Hi all, still trying to calculate as many digits of PI as I can on my DMxxL calculators (especially that yesterday was PI day :lol: ). On the DM15L, I was stopped by what could be a bug (or an undocumented limitation) on indirect adressing limited to 99 registers : see post https://forum.swissmicros...

Re: DM42 Firmware V3.4 available

Hi all,
first time I am flashing my DM42 (I am on Windows).
Went 100% smoothly from V3.3 to 3.4

Only improvement would be to add in the "DM42 User Manual" a link to where we find dm-tool.exe (under chapter "Firmware Update Using dm_tool")

Sincerely,
Boubker.

Thanks for your useful videos. Unfortunately mine does not have this behavior, and I believe the problem is on SwissMicros side.

Here is my version of the same video: https://youtu.be/011XhhiK-vI
I confirm that your DM41L has a strange behavior!
