I keep Free42 in RDX. mode now, thousands separators turned on, and it suits me fine.
So, you can turn thousands separators off, or perhaps I misunderstand your meaning ? If you can turn them off, how do you do this ?

Re: Calculator locks up with this program

Hmm, that is totally at odds with my results, but unfotunately I cannot make a direct comparison, since my calculator would hang under V3.0. I compared the speeds running on USB power, in which case the machine wouldn't lock up on earlier fw versions. OK, I didn’t know that, so I didn’t bother tryi...

I did benchmark the new version compared to the old and I got a 0.6% reduction in speed with V3.2 compared to V3.1.

Re: Calculator locks up with this program

Yesterday I finally got around to updating my firmware, and I can confirm that my program now runs w/o hanging the CPU, however there is a significant reduction in speed. Comparing previous results of the speed test created by pier4r on the MoHPc forum, the time for 100 and 1000 program loops change...

Calculator locks up with this program

I wrote a program to test the calculator speed, and it locks up needing a RESET to recover. The error message is Reg Id d3770103, fw 3.0. The number of loops is placed in the X register before execution, and the program locks up with loops exceeding 100. LBL “SPEED” STO “Loop” TIME —> HR STO 00 0 ST...

Re: Unable to enter the ? symbol in ALPHA mode

Thanks, Mark. Now that I read the DM42 User Manual more closely, I can see that this is documented there.

Another curiosity. The UM says that the virtual variable DevID should return the value 0 (zero), but when I do a RCL, the value is 1. Did I get a future model of the DM42 ?

Unable to enter the ? symbol in ALPHA mode

When I place the calculator in ALPHA entry mode with keyboard entry selected as either upper case [A] or lower case [a], I am able to enter every alpha character to the right of the keys, including - : . <space>. However, when I attempt to enter ?, I just get a R/S action as if the key were not in A...

A dumb question ?

Please forgive my ignorance, but I want to know if programs and data that I have saved using SETUP File Save Program and SETUP Calc.State Save State are preserved not only after a RESET, but also from battery removal/discharge. Is there anything that is not saved by these procedures ? TIA HPMike.

25mph = 40kph :D
I’m surprised you didn’t say you were travelling at 21.7 knots.
