Re: buttons that don't register well

I applied Logan's treatment to my DM 42 yesterday and I'm very much pleased with the results. The usability of the keyboard is much improved.

So thanks a lot!

Re: Stand alone Encoder/Decoder

You can use the Free42 to convert code from txt to raw and vice versa. Copy the code from the editor to the clipboard, switch to program mode in Free42 and paste the code. After this you can export the code to a Raw file. This works also the other way round from raw to txt.

Regards

Re: A couple additional functions that would be cool to have

I have two proposals for additional functionality: For the DM-42: Since my program directory gets crowded more and more I have to scroll a lot until I get to the desired entry. I would like to have a keyboard search similar to that implemented in the WP-34S: Pressing a key brings you to the first en...

The Great Wave off Kanagawa

Here's the The Great Wave off Kanagawa by the Japanese artist Hokusai. It's one of my favourites. I hope you'll like it, too.

Re: Constants

Hello grsbanks, Thanks for programming the constants library. I like it very much. I have updated the constants from the latest CODATA set (2015). See attached listing.

Re: GETKEY/PSE Waiting time

The GETKEY now takes ~1.4 s at 48 MHz and ~5.6 s at 12 MHz. The PSE delay is 1.4 s for both settings. The nominal values according to the manual are: 10 s (GETTKEY) and 1 s (PSE). Here is a short program to measure the delay in s: LBL "T" LBL 01 TIME GETKEY TIME RCL Z - 1E4 * RTN LBL 02 LBL 01 TIME ...

Bug in global LBL generation on dm41.swissmicros.com

There seems of be a bug in the generation of the first global label generation. The first global LBL in RAM should have a byte code of the structure "c0 00 fn 00 <n-chars>". The three zero nybbles after the C denote the byte distance to the previous global LBL. In case of the first LBL, the distance...

Re: GETKEY/PSE Waiting time

A similar tweaking is likely needed in the DM41L code to adjust speed for all the timing-sensitive instructions. Probably the internals were tweaked but some FOCAL instuctions may have been missed. Don't get me wrong. The DM-41L is for sure a cool machine with a mature firmware. I just wanted to ca...

Re: GETKEY/PSE Waiting time

I'll had to replace PSE with STOP, now I need to push additional R/S to get running the remaining programm.
Yes, this a little bit annoying. I'm sure there is a solution, since my HP-41CL doesn't have these problems, even in TURBO50 mode.

GETKEY/PSE Waiting time

Hello, I recently started using my DM-41L again, because of the new capability of generating programs via the "DM41 programming tool". Thanks very much for making this available. While playing around with the DM-41 (firmware V23) I discovered that the waiting time of the GETKEY and the PSE instructi...
