The following new feature would be nice too: display the program+line+instruction to be executed if you press SST.
It already does that. Press and hold SST and it will show you the line that's about to be executed.

Programmable HP calculators have done that at least since the HP-25!

Re: Converting 3D vector to Cartesian triplet x,y,z

Here are two approaches: Assuming the vector is in the X register, this code will put the first three elements in T, Z, and Y, while leaving the vector in X: EDIT ENTER ↓ ENTER ↓ ENTER EXITALL N.B. ↓ is not a short-hand for R↓; it is the matrix editor's "down one element" function, found near the en...

Re: DM 48 .... WHY NOT ?!!!

Gee, I guess I shouldn't mention that I bought a used HP-50g on eBay a couple of weeks ago.
Nope. Better keep that to myself. :lol:

Re: Issue with multi line messages and menus

This should do it: 00 { 14-Byte Prgm } 01▸LBL "FOO" 02 "A[LF]B" 03 AVIEW 04 SF 27 05 END N.B. [LF] is the line feed character, found in the second row of the PUNC submenu of the ALPHA menu. First, lock the PGM catalog: [Shift] [+] [Shift] [+] [1/x]. Then, run the program by pressing the FOO menu key...

Re: DM42 Firmware V3.5 available

I always get into arguments over this with my family and friends because people use the terms loosely. I do not work in the aviation industry, but my understanding is that a direct flight is one on which the passenger travels on the same equipment from start to finish of their route. A non-stop fli...

Re: Free42 web site has moved

I moved the web site back to thomasokken.com. I decided I liked my old hosting provider better, and that the change to .nl was causing too much confusion. My apologies for the inconvenience!

Re: Is there any polling station here?

The "Cowboy Neal" is part of a lyric for "That's it for the Other One" - "...there was Cowboy Neal at the wheel of a bus to never ever land" which seems sorta lame written like that. Like much of the Dead's culture, it's all in the song... Read about Cowboy Neal (the original one) here: https://en....

Re: Is there any polling station here?

It all depends on whether there is a Cowboy Neal option or not. :lol: "Cowboy Neal" - is that a Grateful Dead reference? It is a Slashdot reference. Slashdot is a user-moderated news and discussion site, and since early on they have weekly-or-so polls, on whichever topic the site administrators com...
