Re: Spreadsheet App for DM42

Most of the work will be replicating the Swiss Micro build environment. What I meant was that a suitably motivated user can design a forms program within the current DM42 implementation of Free42. Well, whoever does this would need a lot of motivation, surely. Almost any solution would be easier th...

Re: Spreadsheet App for DM42

I can understand your needs a little better now. As you probably noticed, I wasn't totally satisfied with the first two designs, so Mark 3 is coming up. I'm short of time again, but I'll be back. Okay, here is Mark 3. It's like the second proposal except that the calculator won't have to remember t...

Re: Spreadsheet App for DM42

Hi All - Well, I have played with my "home made" emulator and am I surprised! Gee, 8 rows of lines with 36 charterers in each line sound like a lot - especially after working with 2 lines with 21 charters per line for so many years (HP42s). Well, here is a copy of my emulator display. I have added ...

Re: Spreadsheet App for DM42

The way I see it, we have a way to produce text strings anywhere on the screen (cannot link to the thread, cannot remember where it was mentioned). We have a way of detecting key presses. We should, therefore, be able to make a simple form. All it'd take is some grunt work to make it. A lot of grun...

Re: Spreadsheet App for DM42

As promised, here's the design with some simple forms features. I will approach it from four perspectives: (1) how to run a program that uses the new features; (2) how to write such a program; (3) some suggestions for the piloting program; and (4) the proposed new features for the calculator. Of cou...

Re: Spreadsheet App for DM42

Sorry for the late reply. I didn't notice that the board started a new page after my last comment, and when nothing appeared after it on that page, I thought no one had responded. This BBS really needs a more visible indication that another page is available. Anyway, my previous suggestion wasn't br...

Re: Spreadsheet App for DM42

Hi Eulerfan - Thank you for all of your work on this proposal. Your're welcome. I am beginning to see and understand the complexity involved in this request. My proposal and the work that will be needed to implement it is nothing compared to the sweat that went into the calculator itself (DMCP and ...
