An easy way (FAT) is only possible since v3.7
Since v3.5 actually. (v3.7 saw the introduction of the split DMCP/DM42PRG firmware.)

Re: WP34S for the DM42

So you seduced our little WP34S using cheap menus... :( Please allow me quoting Bert Brecht: 'Erst kommt das Fressen, dann kommt die Moral.' (~ 'First food, then morals.') Yes, but the menus are wipe cleanable. None of your cheap rubbish! :D Please elaborate a bit. :? Just a little joke, as wipe-cl...

Re: Fancy Leather Cases

I'm not really in the market for a leather case, but I think the pouch with the stitching on the inside looks the best: https://www.ludenaleather.com/listing/1007948745/ The wallet style one was always going to be difficult to get right. I don't think it quite succeeds, especially as the top row of ...

DMCP-3.21 cannot load program in a subdirectory

To try alternative firmwares and/or Nigel's WP 34s port, I thought I'd keep the root directory tidy and create a /FW directory to hold the various .pgm files. However, it seems that the Load Program option in the DMCP menu fails to open a .pgm file contained in a subdirectory. It strips the director...

Can't see it.
What has Google broken now?

I can't see it in Google Chrome, but I can in Mozilla FIrefox. It seem to affect all cross-site linked inline BMP images. The ones uploaded as attachments display fine!

4. An (optional) aesthetically-pleasing display font on the DM41X.
Even a font with overlapping segments would look better, and wouldn't need any changes to the underlying ROM code that chooses the segments to be displayed.

IIRC, the letters 'x-hat' and ŷ were and are provided in the character sets of the WP34S (just the software of this forum can't display an 'x-hat'). It may look more professional in the respective menus.
You mean like this: x̂? :-)

Re: RPN in education

As a student, and as someone who is a anal about answers being exact, it would be VERY helpful if there was a way to display a result as a multiple of π, √2,e, ..., etc. As much as I love using the rpn calculator, my Ti 36x pro does the job automatically by just pressing the exact/approx button.

Re: DM42 resets during program run

There is no such type as double double in C/C++. I think you mean long double ? GCC supports 128-bit floating point on some architectures, including x86 and AArch64/ARM64 using the _Float128 / __float128 type and libquadmath . (Also, your program listings are a mess. One instruction per line please!)
