Re: What is the downside of using the M80 or M1B firmwares for the DM-15?

The stock and M80 variants go back a long way. From before I was involved with Swiss Micros anyway. If memory serves (no pun intended) it's down to the hardware that was running the firmware. Recent hardware revisions can run the M1B variant. However, I'm happy to be corrected! A dump from one varia...

Re: Reference

STOIJ, RCLEL, STOEL, I+, I-, J+ and J- are your friends. You can read about them in the HP-42S manual (easily found on the internet). Alternatively you can make a copy of the REGS variable, store your array as REGS and use the standard STO nn and co. functions. This is probably also a good usage of ...

Re: My first attempt at OFF Images.

The Clippy one is absolutely brilliant, but I had to think twice about approving the post because it could easily result in mass destruction of homes with people throwing their DM42 units against the wall :D

Re: ERROR in line sync 6

Yes, that is normal. You can, however, go into the settings and start with a clean machine state.

Don't get me started on the landscape abom... adaptation they made. :)
Not everybody is a fan, I know :)

I do prefer the original format and usually have my trusty 41CX within reach at work at least, but I'm not that dead set against the concept of the DM41.

Re: Firmware-Update DM 11, DM 15

PR Error is normal. All the Voyager machines (except the DM41) Since it is not a Voyager in the first place... ;) True, technically speaking. However, the DM41L is in a "Voyager" format case and gets lumped in with the DM10L/11L/12L/15L/16L as a "Voyager" unit, particularly as its electronics are i...

Re: Firmware-Update DM 11, DM 15

PR Error is normal. All the Voyager machines (except the DM41) display this when the firmware is updated.

Re: Firmware-Update DM 11, DM 15

You sometimes have to press the RESET button more than once. What do you mean by "negative". Nobody can help you with that. All the Voyager units say "SERIAL CONSOLE" when you press the RESET button. It's part of the process. Ditto about the "not aligned to 32 bytes" if the length is not a multiple ...

Re: Feature requests

I'd like an option to use a space character as thousands separator. The DM42 runs the Free42 simulator, which (apart from a few extensions) is a faithful reproduction of the HP-42S, and the HP-42S doesn't offer the space as a thousands separator, only the comma, the dot or no separator at all. If y...
