Re: Wishes for next Updates

Yes please. I will even appreciate an even bigger font, that uses the whole width of the screen to display a full length number.

Re: Famous equations

If I may ask, why don't you (whoever the admin is) like these images on your server? They are not very big.

Re: Famous equations

Hmm. Maybe I am a bit spoilt. I am now in a dilemma. E=mc^2 was going to be boring, on grounds of being so famous that it is commonplace. An RPN program listing was not pretty enough for my liking, so I compromised, but I guess it is a bit of a mishmash now. Maybe <<m c 2 ^ * E - >> as pure RPL shou...

Re: Famous equations

I could. It would still be RPN, but I tried to stay true to the DM42.

Re: Famous equations

So here are a couple more. I have included an inversion to show how the impression is often quite different. But you can always do it easily yourself in Gimp. The Chinese characters are wu-wei, the Daoist concept of getting things done naturally, with out scheming or manipulating. https://www.dropbo...

Re: Famous equations

So how is it that you have to click on the word "image" in my post, but it shows the image on yours?
I enclosed the url in the square brackets that you get when you click on the image button. BBC code is on, [img] is on.

Bigger fonts

The full stack overview on the DM42 is very nice, and wonderful for more intricate work. But often, when using the calculator for simple work, I would be happy with an even bigger font than the current biggest HP font. Big fonts cut down on reading errors. How hard would it be to put in a font so bi...

Re: INPUT command lifts stack

OK. Thanks for all the feedback. A significant difference between 42s and 35s, on which I have done quite a lot of programming so I am used to it.

Re: INPUT command lifts stack

The problem arises when you change the number in N. I first noticed this when I wrote a routine and INPUT N just before I needed it, rather than at the beginning. The result was that the first run of the routine gave a nonsense answer, but the second time around, when N already had the right value a...

INPUT command lifts stack

This is a similar issue to a previous post about the first entry into a matrix, but affects the INPUT command. I first noticed on my DM42, but the problem is the same on my android free42. Both version 2.0.20 When issuing an INPUT command in a program, say INPUT N, the number in variable N is called...
