Re: Small program to print all XTOA caracters on the printer

I just noticed that the original program omits the divide character (#0).

Re: Small program to print all XTOA caracters on the printer

Inspired by this program, I've done one that prints the characters out in a 16 by 16 grid. Attached.

Re: 43S News

I agree, we don't need a combined integer division and remainder on the keyboard . Having such a function on the device might be handy because many CPUs have it. The 16C was a programmer's calculator after all. Still, it will be easy to implement as a user function. About a dozen lines on the 34S in...

Re: DM42 vs DM43S

The current solver is a keystroke program fairly close to how the calculator is programmed: https://sourceforge.net/p/wp34s/code/HEAD/tree/trunk/xrom/solve.wp34s The main differences in this case are that: the user's function is called using the sequence XEQUSR immediately followed by POPUSR the sta...

Re: DM42 vs DM43S

The thing I dislike the most about the wp34s is the lack of a built in MISO solver. Feel free to donate such a solver to the 34S project. I'm sure a keystroke program would make the standard library. It might make XROM with enough care. A C implementation including the ancillaries, would most likel...

Re: DM42 vs DM43S

As far as I'm concerns DM43 == WP43S. This is at a minimum two years from completion and very likely more than that.

Re: Why was Stainless Steel used for the DM42?

Why then do the stainless steel screws I use break far more readily that the plain steel ones? Stainless steel ones seem to break as easily as brass or even more easily. Stainless has other properties that make it difficult. It work hardens quickly and my previous employer had to press enclosures mu...

Re: 43S News

I'm confident HP did some investigations before changing the keyboard layouts with the launch of Pioneers -- assume the gains by following a logical order of operators outweighed the losses by hidebound traditionalists. I'm not. Big companies often do bizarre things for no intelligible reason. Pauli
