Re: Greek letters

[quote=Michael post_id=8344 time=1527259413 user_id=2 There are no plans to extend this character set. There appears to be 14 undefined character spaces there in your character map, surely these could be utilised with some greek math characters ?........ [/quote] I vote against such a change. A ver...

Re: Edit Help file from DM42

If the goal is to display these special characters/symbols on the DM42 display, it's impossible to say, since the html viewer implemented in the DM42 is not specifically documented. Once all the code has been released, it will be possible to research this, as SM almost certainly used some existing b...

Re: DM42 vs DM43S

The obvious answer here, and I'm surprised no one has posted it yet, is get both. The DM42 is available now and a wonderful machine, with pretty much universal praise. Even if you've never owned an HP-42S, if you know/like RPN, you will find it easy to learn and use, and in time with practice, even ...

Re: Inconsistant way of editing LBL and GTO targets

When the extended Alpha mode was first released (during beta testing) there were many (many!) variations suggested, debated, and even tested. The result was what we have today, so this is not new territory. This is not to say it is perfect or that it could not be improved (as Didier's suggestion sho...

Don't ask for [RPN] readability without thorough documentation after one year (if that long), if your code gets larger, for instance to calculate cost proposals. But you can code q'n'd.
While this is true, in the case of RPL it's more like one week... :lol:

Still, I like them both.

Re: Famous equations

...IE11 isn't recommended anyway. Not recommended by whom? It's still supported/updated by MS and is the 2nd or 3rd most-used browser in the world, despite it's age. It will not remain so for too much longer (a year max?) but at the moment it's hanging in there. I'll be bummed when it's displaced a...

Re: Famous equations

The tiny amount of space consumed by offimg images, and their small number, isn't the only reason to store them on the forum server instead of elsewhere. There's also the issue of link rot . When an image is hosted on the forum server, it will remain as long as the forum remains; images hosted on d...

Re: Famous equations

If I may ask, why don't you (whoever the admin is) like these images on your server? They are not very big. When the OFFIMG forum was added after a suggestion, it was explained that there is somewhat limited server space available, however folks could upload image links hosted elsewhere, as it was ...
