Re: Leather Case for DM42

I have recently found a very nice leather case for the DM42. A robust & well made leather holder with belt loop. It is an Australian Buckaroo Leatherworks MPPX case. Hey, now I can wear my calculator on my belt again. Just like back in the '70s when I was a nerd! WAS a Nerd?! You say that like it i...

If you hit Shift-Catalog, MEM, I think you'll see why it's choking on a 146 KB program import. ;)

Re: Benchmark Speed?

Very weird. Is Free42 making some kind of blocking syscall that's much slower/more complex on newer operating systems?

Re: Benchmark Speed?

A couple of weeks ago, I was reading an old PPC Notes (or something similar), and there was a letter/article about someone doing a large prime number search on their TI-59, and it took about 5 hours. I did the same on my DM42 using a Rabin-Miller prime test wrapped in an outer loop and the whole thi...

Please compare ALL n of the WP34S and WP31S.
Yes, that's pretty much what I would like to have on the 42. The "n" portion could be handled via a virtual variable, so as to preserve mode menu and flag compatibility.

Re: Feature requests

Since we're on the topic of display modes, I'd love an option that makes the ALL display mode less aggressive about switching to scientific notation. Casio calculators, for example, usually have "Norm1" and "Norm2" display modes that behave differently in this regard. For instance, if I calculate 1/...

Does Swiss Micros sell any apparel?
You could always buy a bunch of calculators and make scale mail out of them.

Re: Spreadsheet App for DM42

Yes, Dave, I have quite a few spreadsheets loaded in my Casio fx-CG50. The spreadsheet app is not a full blown spreadsheet program. It lacks some functions that I use (like VLOOKUP), but on the whole, it is very useful. It does exactly what I first wrote about. That is, in column 1 I can list all o...

Re: Spreadsheet App for DM42

And here is another thought - I really love RPN, so if a spreadsheet isn't possible on this calculator, how about a dedicated input page that looks like a two column spreadsheet. The first column would hold the variable's name and the second column would hold its value. The top row keys of the DM42...
