8 Level Stack?

Post by TomC » Mon Oct 01, 2018 9:15 pm

How do I set the stack height to 8?

I do recall doing this - perhaps on an early version.

Did it 'go away'? At what software level?

Thanks,

Perhaps you were using a WP-34S? I don't think Free42 or DM42 has ever had an 8 level stack (and neither has the HP-42S).

... but it will come back with the 43S. Please see "Discuss".

I can confirm that the DM42 has never had an 8-level stack!

This would be an excellent feature for a potential Free42+ fork. Expand the flags to 3-digits for toggling advanced features, then add an 8-level stack, secondary alpha register that can be swapped in and out by toggling a flag, PUSH/POP instructions to save/restore the whole stack, alpha, and flags, etc.

What for do you need more than 100 flags? Please specify.

Done for the 43S (and present on the WP34S and WP31S already).

We'll give you an infinite number of alpha registers on the 43S.

More alpha? More flags? Please elaborate.

Thank you all - sorry for the confusion/extra efforts.

Perhaps in my excitement with the DM42, my synapses crossed!

Cheers,
