Re: conversion .mod file to RAW

I just posted an update to rom2raw: it can now read MOD files directly, so it's no longer necessary to extract the ROM files from MOD files using the MODFile program before passing them to rom2raw. Also, it now uses Unicode in the generated program listings (when using the -l option) so they look mo...

Re: Math question: Integration of sin(x) 0...180 deg

You asked the same question before, and I answered it before: viewtopic.php?f=15&t=2121&p=10007#p10007

You never acknowledged that reply; I guess because you never read it?

Re: 43S News

I have to say... Your modified/unofficial layout is *exactly* what I would prefer myself: 1) Math operators on the right --- just like the 34S and other "late" RPN calcs 2) top-to-bottom order of math operators matches 34S and other late RPN. There can be no doubt you started your HP calculator use...

Re: Displaying images (not OFFIMGs)

Actually, no, "set noeol" doesn't do the trick. I don't know what that option does, to be honest -- clearly not what I thought. This does work: "set nofixendofline". Just tested it with vim and xxd (using the exact command :%!xxd -p -r) on my Mac, and it works. https://stackoverflow.com/questions/16...

Re: Displaying images (not OFFIMGs)

Side note: using xxd directly in vi on the current buffer (with the command ":%!xxd -p -r") does not work properly because it adds a new line (x0A) at the end (not sure why, but I could not get rid of it) Assuming you're using vim -- you probably are, even if the command you type is "vi" -- this ma...

Re: Displaying images (not OFFIMGs)

There is no way to get characters with a code above 0x7E into a string without resorting to XTOA. Actually, there is: just make sure that the first code in a string is <= 0x7f, and all subsequent codes can be anything, including >= 0x80. At least, on the DM42 and in Free42. I haven't tried what hap...

Re: [DM10L] Coming soon!

On my iPhone, scrolling down on that page doesn't work very well, I tend to get stuck halfway, so I can't reach the DM10 part at the bottom. I had to view the page on my laptop to confirm that part was even there. (The SM web site is generally not very mobile-friendly.)

Re: Benchmark Speed?

While Free42 is running a program, the only system calls that get called a lot are PeekMessage() and GetTickCount(). The former is called after every instruction to make sure no events are pending before continuing, and the latter is called by LBL to make sure a reasonable amount of time has passed ...

Re: DM42- clock losing time

Presumably, a car clock will be temperature-compensated, to deal with the wide range of temperatures inside cars. Also, many car clocks are adjusted by RDS if you listen to the radio. This is the case with mine (Vauxhall/Opel Insignia estate) so I don't even need to adjust it when changing to/from ...
