Re: 43S News

All of HP's pocket calculators up to and including the famous HP-41C had the arithmetic operators on the left below ENTER. The Voyagers had to put them on the right for obvious reasons. With the Pioneers, they staid on the right - but ENTER remained on the left. So much about HP's logical developme...

Re: 43S News

Looking back at the keyboard layout, I have a question. Why are the operators /*-+ on the left and the exit, up, down... on the right? Having used the HP32, HP42s, and the DM42, I am used to having the on/off/exit in the lower left, and the operators on the right. I don't know that the submenus for ...

Re: QPTR

I already spotted an error, there is no RND after line 29, I played with the code and found a way to make it more elegant, but I don't think I saved anything. 00 { 294-Byte Prgm } 01▸LBL "QPTR" 02 FIX 04 03 INPUT "N41" @ 03-06 Input N41 to N44 Detector Current 04 INPUT "N42" 05 INPUT "N43" 06 INPUT ...

QPTR

I'm currently writing a program to allow me to quickly determine a tilt ratio for a (let's just call it a heat exchanger". The detectors output current in micro amps. To compensate for detector differences, each detector is multiplied by a correction factor to normalize the channel. The sum is calcu...

Re: My dream DM42 display layout

@jfb9301, yes I also think the stack should be aligned to the top, or actually just stay statically the way the image shows when soft key menu is closed. E.g., if you only want to show X, Y, L, the separator line and X, Y stays fixed. That way, the display becomes even less busy with plenty of spac...

Re: My dream DM42 display layout

I would just like to see the stack aligned to the top, not the bottom. Every time I open and close the soft menu it makes the stack jump up and down. The original HP-42S did not move the stack for screen space. I'm a fan of seeing all the stack (and L). [DM42 STATUSBAR] [FREE42 ICONS] L T Z Y X . @s...

Re: DM42 Firmware V3.1 available

I received my DM42 only last Tuesday, and see that I now must face the inevitable, updating the firmware. I have read the manual a few times, and tried to read every applicable post at this Forum, but before I proceed I was hoping that I could ask a few questions: 1. It appears that I need to insta...

Re: Just for the fun of it...the savage benchmark

It doesn't. :) These are meaningless, arbitrary numbers that only test a small subset of the capabilities of the calculator. That said, the reason why I am pursuing the difference is that with two differently written programs that execute the same instruction should reproduce similar results. Knowin...

Re: Just for the fun of it...the savage benchmark

That did it..... 12.84 sec un-plugged, 6.1 plugged. Now I'm not sure why I'm faster :D. This was with RefLCD = 0 I just updated my code to set RefLCD to 0 at the beginning, and reset it to 7 on exit. 00 { 84-Byte Prgm } 01▸LBL "SAVAGE" 02 "RefLCD" 03 ASTO 02 04 CLX 05 STO IND 02 06 RAD 07 2499 08 ST...
