Re: Dutch Lion

That must be a common pose for symbolic lions. In heraldry, " Rampant is the most frequent attitude of quadrupeds": https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Attitude_(heraldry)#Rampant Speaking of heraldry, I recently found out why in the cartoon Underdog , one of the villains was named Simon Bar Sinister. In...

Re: 43S Alternative key layout --> WP43C

I have changed ASN K.PK to ASN KEYS located at the shift [1] position. See below. I also decided to change the long labels REGS.V and FLAGS.V at the blue shift on [Up] and [Dn], to REGS and FLGS respectively. [snip] Any objections? I agree, these are improvements! Shorter, cleaner, but still easy t...

Re: DM 15X ?

I tried but I don't know why, but I can't download the .hex file. I'm not sure what you mean by the .hex file, the driver for macOS for connecting to the DM1x/41L machines is here: http://www.silabs.com/products/mcu/Pages/USBtoUARTBridgeVCPDrivers.aspx If that will not install, post some specific r...

Re: 43S Alternative key layout --> WP43C

What about just KEYS. It is four letters. It is compact. Not repeated. And talks directly to the topic. It would read ASN KEYS . Any enthusiasm for that? I like it! Simple, clear, accurate, fits nicely. While simplest answers are usually best, it often takes time examining all the less-simple optio...

Olivier,

Check out this website:

http://hp-15c.homepage.t-online.de/content_web.htm

This is a a very nice HP-15C simulator (Windows, Linux, Mac) that includes a USB interface to SwissMicro's DM15L, allowing copying of programs, etc. It may be just what you are looking for.

Re: 43S News

Among the names suggested so far, I like SSHOT best; I think the period isn't necessary. And I agree with Jaco that I frequently hit the wrong shift key first, and then when hitting the second shift, would create SSHOT files for no good reason, so I'd prefer a different key location for this command...

Re: 43S Alternative key layout --> WP43C

No problem, Bob - once you wrote what you meant I can comprehend your intentions ;) Please allow me quoting footnote 27 from the very same page where Σ+ and Σ- are explained in the ReM (and directly referenced from Σ+ and Σ-): Σ+ and Σ− return temporary information as shown in Section 2 of the OM a...

Re: 43S Alternative key layout --> WP43C

This is a nice reminder of how we can use functions effectively even if not using them for the task intended, thanks Nigel. The RefMan does state some of this for Σ+, but not for Σ-, and as Walter points out below, the OwnMan does explain it as well. @Walter - I'd recommend these small enhancements...
