Re: Free42 has a new version, 2.022, time for a DM42 ROM update...

Thanks for explaining the update comprehensively. I think everybody here knows by now how a DM42 firmware update works. No need to split hairs over the terminology. Alas, the term "ROM" was used more than once. And as far as I can imagine, language was generally invented for better understanding, no...

Re: 43S News

All three functions IDIV (integer divide), RMDR (remainder), and MOD (modulo) are going to be present in the function set, each of them operating as a dyadic function (as they were and did in the set of the WP 34S ). There will be some 750 functions provided in total. :) Not sure I wrote it correct...

Re: 43S News

Thanks for pointing to that engineering library. I read there: It adds 700 programmable complex mathematical keystroke commands to the extensive internal HP48 library. Dunno where you got the number of 1,100 from. :? Anyway, please allow me quoting an old project management saying: There are several...

Re: 43S News

As %, ▲% and some other function's did in most of HP calculators, I wondered if it would be possible to get the RMDR "key" returning two values (in x and y register). Indeed, I find it equally usefull to get the remainder and the (integer) quotient for an "integer division" (I'm not certain if it's...

Re: 43S News

I did see the explanations of 1 Dec, and I understand the economies of scale explained on 1 Jan. I was simply sharing my ‘desires’ re. coloured prefix keys, as was suggested by ‘bob p’ on 1 Dec. Thank you for again and again responding to different nuances of the same old questions from different i...

Re: 43S News

Despite the obvious difficulties mentioned, I would like and prefer coloured moulded function keys as opposed to stick-ons or framed boxes around the keys. I agree that framed boxes could be a fall back option, or be provided any way, but I really would not like function keys to be the same colour ...

Re: Dave Jones (EEVBLOG) tries the DM42

Meino, From the German Wikipedia, keyword "Goldener Schnitt" (i.e. golden ratio): Das Verhältnis zweier aufeinanderfolgender Zahlen der Fibonacci-Folge strebt gegen den Goldenen Schnitt meaning that the ratio of two consecutive Fibonacci numbers approaches the golden ratio. At the bottom line, it ma...
