Where did you find the source code for the VSC plugin?
On the page I linked to, there is a "repository" link that takes you to GitHub. I didn't look at the actual code, but from a quick glance, it looks like everything is there.

Re: Translation table HP42s(ascii) <=> HP42s(raw)

The VSC plugin hasn't been updated recently so it won't support the new functions added in the last few months. The DM42 Programming Tool is more up-to-date, although even it probably doesn't support XSTR, since that isn't even in any released version of Free42 yet. It will be in 3.0.3. (XSTR is for...

Re: Translation table HP42s(ascii) <=> HP42s(raw)

Or maybe this plugin for Visual Studio Code would be a good starting point: https://marketplace.visualstudio.com/it ... 42s-free42

It looks like the source code for that is available.

Re: Translation table HP42s(ascii) <=> HP42s(raw)

There is a lot more involved than just table lookups, unfortunately! You could take a look at core_copy() and core_paste() in core_main.cc, following the prgm_mode cases, but those are only half the story, since they convert between text and the internal format used by Free42. The other half would b...

Re: Free42 Version 3

Then I don't know what "automatic stack lifting" was referring to, if not relating to enabling/disabling Entry RPN. That's ok, I'll just leave it at this and move on. In case you're referring to this... We continue offering such a stack with the WP43S, keeping the benefits of RPN (automat...

Re: Free42 Version 3

Free42 is type alpha (Classical RPN and 4 levels stack) by default and can optionally be type delta (classical RPN and ~unlimited stack). I'm not sure introducing new terminology just for describing this is going to reduce confusion very much. Free42 in NSTK mode looks more like "type beta&quo...

Re: Free42 Version 3

The Plus42 source code is in the same GitHub repository as Free42; just select the "plus" branch. Not much activity there in recent weeks... I have been busy with some personal matters. Hoping to get back into a nice working rhythm soon. I'm particularly eager to finish the equations featu...

Do you know, wheter updates you made/will make for Free42 3.02 will be incorporated into
the final build which will be there after the beta phase?

Happy Eastern ! :)
I hope so, but you're asking the wrong person. That's up to SwissMicros to decide.

Dir auch frohe Ostern!

Re: Crash with DMCP-3.21 / DM42-3.18b2 BETA RELEASE

That's a bug in Free42. DROPN crashes in 4STK mode, except when n = 4.

It's fixed in 3.0.2.

Re: How to use PGMMENU & VARMENU

1) How can I display a prompt when PGMMENU is working? My code below just shows a blank line above the menu. I'm using free42 3.0.2 It looks like PGMMENU is clearing the display. That's a bug, it's not supposed to do that. But as a work-around, you can use AVIEW or PROMPT after PGMMENU. ( Update : ...
