Re: UPDATE: DMCP-3.17 / DM42-3.15rc1

Great update! Now I can load my DM42 state onto my iPhone. Saves a lot of hassle. Also I really like the ability to change word size for base conversions. I don’t often do base conversions, but when I do it’s either 8 or 16 bits. Thanks SM and Thomas!

Re: 43S News

Bob, I think your suggestions are worthy of further discussion. Walter can be convinced: it needs evidence and justification. I’ll be honest, I’ll buy one of these calculators but have decided it’s not worth my effort voicing my opinion about anything layout related. Thus I don’t participate in thi...

Re: Converting to 1-bit

Photoshop for initial cropping and then a python script I wrote for the mono conversion and final dithering. I always loved the way Atkinson dithering looked. It reminds me of being a kid and playing on the classic Macs at my dad’s work. So I implemented it for myself when I got a DM42. Fun learning...

Re: UPDATE: DMCP-3.14 / DM42-3.14

I definitely missed some 0’s after the update. Nothing hugely problematic but it happened a few times.

Re: Standalone DM42 decoder/encoder

I wrote an encoder in python. Haven’t done the decoder yet.

Feature requests

After owning my DM42 for about a year, I'm still really enjoying it. I had a few feature ideas/requests for future firmware versions. All of these are obviously extensions of HP-42S behavior (much like full stack display, date and time functions, etc.). At the same time, they could all be set to the...

Re: 43S News

Colored keys (and keypad feel) are a definite plus for me.

I wonder if it's not worth looking into the computer keyboard community for vendors who do custom keys?

Re: Txt to Raw and Raw to Txt

So it's not perfect, but I finally got around to writing an encoder in Python to convert programs to raw files. Maybe I will add decoding to it at some point, though I hope Swiss Micros just enables text import/export of programs directly on the DM42. It is already built into Free42 after all. I mak...

Printer options?

Any plans to do anything on the printer front? I'd love a IR to USB adapter or something that would let me interface with available POS printers or act as a keyboard (for direct text entry into a text editor). The print to file feature is great, but it involves switching modes on the calculator, plu...
