You can also press EXIT after entering a number, and it will only change the X register without disabling automatic stack lift.
I can't think of a situation where that would be useful.
It makes entering numbers on the stack behave more like RPL calculators (apart from the limited stack size).

Re: Keyboard Debouncing - NOOB Question

When entering a number, then hitting ENTER, the number appears both in the "X" Register and the "Y" Register. If I proceed to enter a second number it types into the "X" register. That's normal for the classic T/Z/Y/X register RPN calculators. You can also press EXIT after entering a number, and it...

Re: UPDATE: DMCP-3.10 / DM42-3.10

See this message above (https://forum.swissmicros.com/viewtopic.php?p=9071#p9049) However, there are multiple benchmarks available so we need to get clarification from Mark regarding which benchmark it is that he used. Until we hear otherwise, I guess Mark is referring to the Summation based benchm...

Re: Updating from 3.3 to 3.10

Those numbers all look correct. On your usual PC, do any devices with exclamation marks appear in Windows Device Manager when you connect the DM42 and "Activate USB Disk"? If so, then delete those devices in Device Manager, 'eject' the USB device if possible (but it shouldn't matter since it never g...

Re: Updating from 3.3 to 3.10

If your QSPI is faulty/corrupt, you have "nothing to lose" in trying either 4. or 5. as described in the manual. http://www.swissmicros.com/dm42/doc/dm42_user_manual/#qspi_load_menu If you successfully manage to format the QSPI (Maybe you lose some space if there are corrupt blocks in it, but the 5...

Dunno about the spelling at stardate 4900, but nowadays torpedos are torpedos (don't take this personally: even American presidents have difficulties with this trailing syllable in plural ;)).
I'm pretty sure torpedoes is correct.

Re: 8 Level Stack?

Perhaps you were using a WP-34S? I don't think Free42 or DM42 has ever had an 8 level stack (and neither has the HP-42S).

Re: DM42 - display contrast

I suppose the question remains why your display is "too dark", since the contrast on these displays is generally very good when viewed in well-lit conditions, certainly better than the contrast on the old HP-42S and similar two-line display Pioneer models, which wasn't that great.
