is nothing but a cosmetic PDF version of the original ASCII text file by Jim.
The article is actually from Joe Horn. Amazingly, yes they are brothers.

As I've written elsewhere, the Force is strong with this family.

Re: Flash write cycles

Ha ha, I'll be im pressed if anybody needs to do over 100,000 firmware flashes. Not me, I'd be de pressed if that many updates were needed... :oops: Personal impressions aside, it's clear internal architecture and technology planning were well thought out, as is typical from the SwissMicros team.

Re: GROFFIMG.BMP

Yes, it was a picture of the screen at the time of the file. So it seems that while doing screen captures with Shift+DISP I have somehow created also this file. What is strange is the name, as if it was possible to create a screen capture that will be used for the off screen. Well, you can do that....

Re: My Calculator DM42 ist arrived ;-)

Sorry, the picture was cropped to square miniature by the forum... I have edited my message, to add the picture as an attrachment - I hope you can see it now. Yes, this is MUCH better, thank you for the effort to do this, twice, for us impatient folks. The font for the labels (much discussed during...

Alphabet and "ON" is yellow on mine... I suppose the complete batch has the same bezel.
Unfortunately, the photo is too small to see much detail, and the bottom row is chopped-off, but thanks anyhow.

I'd guess all production units (so far) are the same.

Re: My Calculator DM42 ist arrived ;-)

That must be a subtle difference between the beta units and the production units (I don't have a production unit). The alphabet on my key bezel is yellow.

Re: My Calculator DM42 ist arrived ;-)

Thank you, sirs. Maybe then the ON should be written in white to keep the color logic of the keyboard. It's kind of misleading to picture it in yellow. Checking a real HP-42S, as I presume it's ON label is also yellow, I find it's.... not. It's white (maybe silver), so yeah... Though it's not reall...

Re: DM42

Unless you need something elegant, why not just create a dead simple program to put all your favorite constants into the X register when you call by name, something like: 01 LBL "C" 02 299792458 03 RTN 04 LBL "AVGDRO" 05 6022140857E14 05 RTN 07 ... NN END Then the calling program simply recalls the ...

Re: Self Test on DM42?

SM has not revealed if there are any other built-in diagnostics. This actually isn't correct, the DM42 firmware includes a Diagnostic screen (Setup->System->Enter System Menu->Diagnostics), which displays a variety of system specs/status (CPU, disk, battery, USB) and also includes a simple but effe...
