Re: UPDATE: DMCP-3.9a / DM42-3.9.1 / dm_tool-2.4

Bill, you can go direct to 3.9 but you will have to use dm_tool to do it. I think David kept the instructions for this method in the manual even though it is now deprecated.

You'll need to flash the combined .bin file with both the DMCP and DM42 parts included.

Re: New images dated 180814

Re: Question on solver programs vs regular programs

There is no real way to differentiate between Solver (or Integrator, for that matter) programs and "normal" programs.

In effect, all the Solver does is go through all the programs isolating those that begin with a bunch of MVAR instructions to list those alone in the initial Solver menu.

Re: DM42 Firmware V3.5 available

I'll have to find out what happened. I wasn't told about the update and therefore couldn't announce it :)

Re: Incongruity of the PIXEL function

Not without changing behaviour away from how the HP-42S works. Legacy HP-42S programs might rely on the specific behaviour of PIXEL and would cease to function properly if this were changed. Bad idea.

Re: Battery change

None are needed. Just remove the back cover and it will be self-evident what to do.
