Re: Firmware Update (v29) on DM 15L using a MacBook Pro

Is there a default order that a Mac will use the package managers in, assuming that at least two package managers are installed? Finally, it sounds like MacPort and Homebrew are the most popular package managers. The order is under your control, via your PATH environment variable. You set this in o...

Re: Keyboard debouncing

I'm using the latest firmware revision DMCP_3.14 (A new version gets a chance!). I've been using the calculator for a few hours and I think the keyboard reading has improved. In this time I haven't observed repeated keystrokes. Is it a coincidence or have you improved the keyboard debounce? In my c...

Re: 43S News

Ok, for more roasting I will admit I never even really understood the need for a % function on a 'scientific' calc. That’s funny, I agree; I was going to reply to your first post, asking if the justification was that it’s too easy, then why do you have % on a key already? :) For most of my life, I’...

Re: 43S News

The surface has changed a bit again: Ausschnitt.png There are three (3) locations still unoccupied so far. Any ideas for operations which shall go there? %T might be nice (like the 12C), especially given it’s near % & Δ% . The other thing I program as a user key on most calcs is log y (x), but you ...

Re: Firmware Update (v29) on DM 15L using a MacBook Pro

I had both Brew and MacPorts installed on my last Mac for some time, never noticed a problem.

Re: 43S News

About CPX and CPX etc.: Principally, you are free to define in mathematics whatever you want but must stick to it thereafter. Conventionally, upper and lower case letters denote different items while I don't remember any general convention covering underlining in mathematics. not necessarily releva...

Glad it's working Bob.

Sylvain's macports method should have worked just as well, though, so that is rather odd.

Re: any chance of a new font?

Hard to tell how it would look. That looks like 7x7?

The font I prefer on the DM15L seems to be 9 high x 5 wide, with space between the numbers that might allow wider chars?
