Re: Two questions

KEY 9 GTO xx achieves this if you want to organise your program into a menu-driven structure. As I'm using the whole keyboard for my program, no menus, this doesn't help me. Then there is no help for you, I'm afraid. KEY GTO and KEY XEQ are the only ways to redefine EXIT, and pressing EXIT during G...

Re: INPUT command lifts stack

Hmm, when I posted my previous message, 0xdeadbeef's last message wasn't there, despite it now showing up with a time stamp that's 1 hour 16 minutes earlier than mine. If I had seen that message, I wouldn't have posted mine, but with a 76-minute gap between them, this was not a garden-variety case o...

Re: INPUT command lifts stack

OK, so there is no bug here. You just don't like how the HP-42S/Free42/DM42 Version of INPUT works.

Re: INPUT command lifts stack

Not on my 42S, rev. C.

What are the exact keystrokes you're using? I entered the program LBL "TST" 5 INPUT "N" + END, as above, and then did XEQ "TST" 10 R/S. The result is 10 plus whatever was in N before, or 10 (10 + 0) if N did not exist before.

Re: INPUT command lifts stack

This behavior matches the real HP-42S. The function index, page 320, says: Recalls a register or variable to the X-register, displays the name of the register or variable along with the contents of the X-register, and halts program execution; pressing [R/S] (or [Shift] [SST]) stores x into the regis...

Re: DM15L degrees issue

It sounds like the calculator is in Complex mode. In that mode, the trigs work in radians, regardless of the DEG/RAD/GRAD setting.

Re: Stand alone Encoder/Decoder

The format used internally by Free42 is completely different from that used inside the HP-42S. Without going into details, the Free42 format uses roughly twice as much memory, but is much easier to decode for program execution. Free42 converts from the HP-42S format to its own format while importing...

Re: Solver and the GAMMA function

Calling f with 50 manually result in 6.something. When you say "calling f with 50 manually," do you mean 50 XEQ "f" ? Because that doesn't work; you must do 50 STO "x" XEQ "f" since the function gets its parameter from the variable "x", not from the stack. (In case your 6.something meant 6.somethin...
