Re: Free42 Version 3

Actually, we have shown with the WP34S that all real-world calculations can be done with just an 8-level stack at zero risk of stack overflow. We continue offering such a stack with the WP43S, keeping the benefits of RPN (automatic stack lift, top stack level repetition). Maybe calculations can get...

Oh yes! But 40 years later, a high resolution plot should look more like high resolution, doesn't it?
With the same printer and the same O/S?
If you don't change anything in 40 years, well, alas, it may be your fault. Some progress sometimes is nice for us, isn't it?

I agree that an nth Root function would be a worthwhile addition to the DM42, and if not there, then definitely the DM43/WP43S.
