Re: "Enter" Key

If you haven't tried it yet, you might give flexing the keys a shot. Made a huge difference in all my keys, including the ENTER key. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZDxVxw6_SKU I second that. Not only did it improve the feel of the keyboard overall in my unit, but mine also had the asymmetric ENTER...

Re: ? DM42 as Alarm Clock ?

It is impossible, because Free42 is just an app. It doesn't control the hardware. On an HP-41C with a Time Module, or an HP-41CX, or a hypothetical DM42 with updated firmware, an alarm can turn on the calculator. Applications running on Windows, MacOS, or Linux have no such capability. Apps running ...

Yes, with 90 different two-digit numbers to choose from, HP have re-used some of them several times over, confusing collectors forevermore. :D

Re: Attention collectors!

I'm not sure anymore, because I saw that the HP-10bII machine is a " financial " calculator, but the wiki talks about other RPN-scientific model , so at random, I vote yes, because it's an object of collection, but it seems to me not priority. I just like a kind of disgust for HP "financial" becaus...

Re: existencial problem STO/RCL ok, but EXISTS (?)

It seems the structure 'flags_struct' is {extern} of Free42/common core_globals.h:extern flags_struct flags; // C or C++ ... I suppose its machine-dependent issue, but just for a bitset(?) ...anyway I will investigate for pleasure... You may find this useful, too: https://thomasokken.com/free42/#do...

Re: RTC Calibration program

You could've created the file with a TXT extension and then renamed it. Tried doing that, but Win 10 wouldn't let me. The file became rtccalib.cfg.txt ! Win 10 sucks !!!!! That's odd. When I try to rename foo .txt to foo .cfg, File Explorer warns me that "If you change a file name extension, the fi...

Re: How to call PRGM-Editor from program?

No problem, my pleasure.

Just out of curiosity: why are you looking for this functionality? It doesn't seem very useful, and even if you could do SF 52, it would take a lot more to support programs generating programs.

Re: HTML-Viewer (Help File)

"smartphone without phone" To me, the classic "smartphone without the phone part" is the iPod touch. Steve Jobs conceived of it as a product that would appeal to people who found the iPhone too expensive, and lure them into the iOS ecosystem anyway. It worked on me. I got one, the second-generation...
