Re: Put in function from Catalog

You can't execute functions from catalogs 2 or 3. You need to use XEQ, or the key if there is one.

You can execute your own programs from catalog 1, because when you stop on one, that sets the program pointer to that program.

Re: DM41X

hah! that is so silly of me; I knew your username looked familiar, but I forgot who was behind it :) My 41CL stopped responding. I found that if I pressed hard between a few of the upper keys, it would come on, then go off again when I let go. Seemed to me to indicate a post problem. I bought it (as...

Re: DM41X

but the downside of slow, inconvenient PC transfer. I agree with you for the ROM update which you only do a couple of times per year, otherwise the 41CL is a very hard NUT to crack! :D heh :) I didn't mean to sound critical on that point; I love my 41CL (currently inoperative, hopefully fixed soon)...

Re: DM41X

I have the 41CL, which is great. One nice feature of the DM41X will be the much easier transfer to/from other devices. [edit: at least, I hope so; I've yet to watch the video] I see a niche for both: 41CL original look and feel, but with modern performance and massive expandability, but the downside...

If everyone switches to the DM41X or WP43 or whatever
I can see myself getting one, or both of those (modulo key response issues being fixed), but I'll not be switching from my DM42, or the Free42 app on my phone. so thank you again for your work :)

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 ...
