Re: Feature requests

I'd like an option to use a space character as thousands separator. The DM42 runs the Free42 simulator, which (apart from a few extensions) is a faithful reproduction of the HP-42S, and the HP-42S doesn't offer the space as a thousands separator, only the comma, the dot or no separator at all. If y...

Re: A problem of Conditions

Hi there, The comparison function X<Y? and family do not compare variables, they compare values in the stack. So, once you have run this bit: 38 0 39 STO "i" you have the value of "i" (zero) in X. When you now do this: 40 RCL "Achar" that zero gets pushed up to Y in the stack and X now contains the ...

@Godwin - The DM42 Encoder/Decoder will need to be updated to allow processing of the new LSTO command. Is the proper byte code needed from Thomas, or how the heck do you know what to use?
Indeed, I need to set some time aside for this!

Re: DM15L USB connection touble?

The encoder/decoder is written entirely in JavaScript (I wrote it), there's nothing to hide. Just download the JavaScript files linked to in the HTML and you'll have the source code for the decoders for all of the DM11/12/15/16 machines.

Just for curiosity, how do you read 16-digit numbers without spaces??
I would use either a space or a comma to separate groups of 3 digits before the decimal but not after.

Re: 43S News

I take it the spaces separating groups of 3 digits after the decimal point can be removed in the formatting? That would grate on me no end if not!
