We need you for the 43S. Yes, you!

Post by Over_score » Sun Dec 16, 2018 8:06 pm

I'm the programmer who has been working on the WP43S simulator for a year now. The task is huge and I won't be able to do it alone in a reasonable time.
Are there any HP geeks out there who are C programmers interested in participating in the development of the WP43S simulator?
The two tasks that are easy to delegate without step on one another's toes are the followings:
- Write comprehensive tests for (almost) all program functions. There are currently 850 of them and this number is growing rapidly.
- Improve and enhance the simulator's user interface.

Ich bin der Programmierer, der seit einem Jahr am WP43S-Simulator arbeitet. Die Aufgabe ist enorm, und ich bin nicht in der Lage, sie allein in einer angemessenen Zeit zu bewältigen.
Gibt es HP-Geeks, die C-Kenntnisse haben, die daran interessiert sind, an der Entwicklung des WP43S-Simulators mitzuwirken?
Die zwei Aufgaben, die leicht zu delegieren sind, ohne sich gegenseitig auf die Füße zu treten, sind die folgenden:
- Schreiben von umfassenden Tests für (fast) alle Programmfunktionen. Derzeit gibt es 850 davon, und diese Zahl steigt stark.
- Verbessern und Verschönern der Benutzeroberfläche des Simulators.

Je suis le programmeur qui depuis un an s'est attelé à la réalisation du simulateur WP43S. La tâche est immense et je n'y arriverait pas seul dans un délai raisonnable.
Y a-t-il ici des geek HP, programmeurs C intéressés en la participation à la réalisation du simulateur WP43S ?
Les 2 tâches faciles à déléguer sans que nous ne nous marchions réciproquement sur les pieds sont les suivantes :
- Écrire des tests exhaustifs pour (presque) toutes les fonctions du programme. Il y en a 850 pour le moment et ce chiffre est en forte croissance.
- Améliorer et enjoliver l'interface utilisateur du simulateur.

I'd love to help, but only have UNIX systems here at home (Linux, Solaris, MacOS). Is that of any use, or is Windows required?

Linux is OK. I use linux for development myself with codeblocks. By the way, Windows is OK too.

Hi,

I'd love to help too. I have never had a WP34, but I have a little C(++) programming experience on Linux/Windows (mostly Qt stuff).
Do you use git or another version control system?

Best regards

PS: I do have a DM42, though. I assume the emulator and the "real" calculator firmware (will) share the same code (minus some of the UI, obviously)?

Will the /*-+ keys be on the right or left side in the final version of the DM43?

This has already been discussed a lot e.g. here: viewtopic.php?f=2&t=1816&hilit=operatio ... t=60#p7610

The odds are high they will be on the left side given the results of the polls years ago. If there would be a change, however, more must be modified than just those four operators. And you'd have to convince the developers.
