What is saved as a 'State'?

Post by J Peters » Fri May 04, 2018 8:12 pm

Just how much is stored in a State file please? Does it include the current values of variables, registers, stack etc? What about loaded programs?

Or maybe I should ask if there is anything that isn't saved?

Many thanks,

The machine state does what it says on the tin. It saves everything needed for the calculator to find itself back in the same state when you re-load the state file. This includes all programs, variables, flags, display contents, alpha register...

Thank you. I did assume it wouldn't store/re-load the date and time as that would be Very Silly :lol: , but I wasn't sure if there was anything else that didn't get saved.
