Re: Proposal for CST/CONF

I like the CST function and the A to P keys that allow you to quickly execute programs. However the stack is not visible. I tend to write most of my programs as functions, key in the value, run the program, return the result in the X register. Simple. Perhaps a CST mode could be added to show at lea...

Re: Multiple programs in a RAW file?

I wasn't REALLY a size problem. I have now successfully loaded the 23 programs in one raw file by separating them by RTN statements instead of END statements. Same size.

When I feel brave enough I will try and reproduce the error. I'm still getting everything setup the way I like it.

Re: Multiple programs in a RAW file?

Good idea! TRY AGAIN means it has run out of program memory or you've tried to run SIZE with too large a value. Which is odd because there was no program in memory at the time. Perhaps my attempt to load multiple programs separated by END statements in one raw file did something odd to the memory co...

Re: Multiple programs in a RAW file?

Okay - had to hit the RESET button on the back to clear that error.

All working now - yay!

Re: Multiple programs in a RAW file?

I cannot load any programs now! The TRY AGAIN error occurs every time.

Re: Multiple programs in a RAW file?

So ... replaced all my END statements with RTN statements. The DM42 programming tool automatically generated a final END for me. Now when I try to load the raw file the DM41X says "TRY AGAIN". I can't find any reference to this message in the user manual. So I guess I'll have to load them one-at-a-t...

Multiple programs in a RAW file?

I have just encoded a raft ( 23 ) of programs using the DM42 programming tool. Each is terminated by an END statement. On the DM42, a file like this could be loaded into calculator memory with all the programs being loaded at once. However, if seems the DM41X only loads the first program it finds in...

Re: Where are 'modules' documented?

I understand the thrill to use a new toy but, if you are not fully familiar with the 41, may I suggest a thorough read of the manuals? It was an interesting read 40+ years ago, and probably today too: they are very well written and expose each peculiarity of the machine. Then, asking for difference...

Re: Where are 'modules' documented?

Press R/S inside CAT 2. Then to view the contents of the module header shown press ENTER. You can use R/S to start and stop the rolling display, SST/BST when stopped to single step in the catalog. You may want to consult the Games application pac manual. There are scans available as pdf and similar...

Aren't they supposed to show up in CATALOG 2 ?
Aha! I can see 'GAMES 1A' listed under CATALOG 2. I guess that's progress.
Okay, stumped again. What do I do now?
