Traditionally, gifts used to be given on Christmas Day here in the UK but only opened on the day after Christmas, hence the name "Boxing Day".
I suppose in modern parlance it should be known as Unboxing Day (except on YouTube, where every day is an unboxing day!).

Re: Feature requests

I'd vote for inline comments - something like ... RCL+17 /* comment ... allowing for commenting each step. How would you implement this in a keystroke programming model such as the 42S one? /* would obviously be translated to divide and multiply instructions... That's true. Stéphane's suggestion of...

[SOLVED] DM42 double mounted in Linux

I had a problem where every time I plugged in the DM42 in one of my Linux systems and activated the USB disk from the DM42 menus, it would get automatically mounted in two places simultaneously, once in /media/ian/DM42 (my username being "ian"), and once in /media/usb0 . After I'd finished transferr...

Re: All calculation are equal but complex number are more equal...?

X^2 will square all the matrix elements, it will not square the matrix. Only (all?) single-argument functions will work on all elements of the matrix. Eg. MOD doesn't work, but SIN, IP, SIGN, XTOA etc. work. Cheers, Werner Also, the +, -, *, / operations between a number and a matrix apply the oper...

Re: buttons that don't register well

I just opened up my calculator to try cesar's Post-It note (or supermarket own-brand sticky notes in my case) trick to fix the non-clickyness of the left hand side of the ENTER and it worked great! The ENTER key on my DM42 now feels the same all across its width. I also followed Logan's procedure to...

Re: HP-42S / Free42 Extension for Visual Studio Code

That looks useful, although I haven't tried it yet. I like the included command help. I wonder how it handles double quotes and comment characters in strings? I don't really like the "Greedy comments" switch that grsbanks used for his online translator, although I understand his reasons for impleme...

Re: Keyboard debouncing

So getting back to the topic :) Does anyone think there is anything we can do to fix the keyboard bouncing problem? I am thinking it can be addressed in software and I am trying to figure out if anyone else thinks it is worth working on.... of if I am the only one that is plagued by it :) The softw...
