Re: Put, Get, Data Matrix

NOTE: EXITing or EXITALL from the INDEX function does not clear IJ. When accessing any of the ← functions, values of the matrix appear. I noticed that Pica used EDIT and INDEXEd the matrix in one of his programs. Perhaps he is aware of this feature. To experience this, INDEX a matrix. EXIT then acc...

Re: External stack

if I understand it correctly, this would make the coding of the calling program, which uses PGMSLV, dependant on the nameing and the count of the program FOO. Correct. There's no way around that. And -- as you already mentioned -- MVAR called in a program directly (RUN mode) will still "pollute" th...

Re: External stack

In this context I would like to suggest a "LMVAR" command, wich works similiar to the LSTO-command and would create variables which evaporize into thin air, when the program has ended. Would this be possible? Yes, that's possible, and you don't even need a new command for it. Say you have a functio...

Re: Landscape DM42?

IMHO, debugging is not done often enough (compared to actual use) to justify such high priority real estate as a primary key, though when you are debugging they sure are handy and at that moment in time, seem well-justified Ay, there's the rub! When you are debugging, you tend to use SST a lot , an...

Re: Landscape DM42?

Ummm, maybe you might want to kindly take a look at that picture in my post, which, in your rush to point out the dumbest possible interpretation of what I wrote, you apparently didn't have time to inspect...

Re: Landscape DM42?

Presumably Thomas meant as compared to the 42s which has only 37 keys :) Thanks. May be, may be not. Anyway, the second question is definitly open still. "Maybe, maybe not"? Are you really insinuating I don't know how many keys are on the DM42? That's across the line between being an annoying smart...

Re: Landscape DM42?

Although I am rather indifferent to the whole landscape question, I will admit that it offers two extra keys, which can be put to good use:

Re: Problem with the solver

XEQ should not cause the solver to fail!
If you can reproduce the problem, please let me know.

Re: Problem with the solver

Well, I loaded some old programs and they also did not work properly. Were those old programs functions for use with SOLVE as well, or did you have trouble running programs in general? If they were SOLVE programs, were you solving for the same parameter each time? I don't know what happened so I ma...

Re: External stack

Ok, the WP 34S got local registers in 2011, Free42 got local variables now. Beyond the difference between registers and variables, is there anything else? Just for curiosity... Well, Free42 is basically an HP-42S, with more memory, more speed, and higher precision, several extensions , and now, loc...
