Character set for 400x240?

Contributions to this software library are always welcome. Please ensure that you post program listings rather than .raw files. They give a reasonable idea of what your program does without having to load them into a DM42 and you can also include comments in your code. Check out the following link for a decoder/encoder: http://www.swissmicros.com/dm42/decoder/

You can then copy/paste the listing and post it in "code" tags.

You need to scroll to the end of that thread to get to the latest version of the string routines that I created.

There are two character sets - "Big Chars" and "Small Chars". Both of these are from Free42 and appear fine
on standard HP-42S resolution of 131x16 and also look fine on DM42 resolution of 200x120.

While they do work on 400x240, they are extremely small - half the size of text on 200x120.

I wish to again thank Thomas Okken for Free42 and for making the source available from where I got the character maps.
