Re: External stack

/.../ In this context I would like to suggest a "LMVAR" command, wich works similiar to the LSTO-command and would create variables which evaporize into thin air, when the program has ended. /.../ I would like a " L INPUT" command. I think it would make some programs cleaner, but I haven't thought ...

Re: Firmware V30, DM15L and battery ?

Coincidence = Zufall, not Koinzindenz, unless it is clear from context that the other sense is intended. I guess the term of choice for Zufall used to be "chance," as in "a chance encounter," but that seems to have largely fallen out of use. The verb "to coincide," however, does still refer to thing...

Re: DM42 skin for the Free42 simulator

On another topic I have the feeling that high-res skins have issue registering some key presses. With the size 2 I don't have any problem at all, with size 6 there are some miss from time to time, and with size 12 it's hard to use, a non-negligible number of keys are missed. I noticed that with siz...

Re: DM42 skin for the Free42 simulator

For the issue about downloading from Github, I'm not sure how it is implemented on the app side so I don't know what is causing problems. If I can do something to improve this please let met know Thomas, otherwise I may eventually see if I can quickly generate a "Github pages" with the skin links, ...

Re: DM42 skin for the Free42 simulator

690×1297 should be enough for anyone. :lol:

(OK, I'm just too lazy to mirror all those sizes. :oops:)

Re: DM42 skin for the Free42 simulator

Loading from https://thomasokken.com/free42/skins/ does work. It looks like the browser in Free42 isn't handling the links on StreakyCobra's site properly. You should be able to avoid using the built-in HTTP server by downloading the files on the phone using Safari, and then using Files to copy them...

Re: DM42 skin for the Free42 simulator

Thanks! I'll post the new versions of the 2x and 4x sizes in my skin collection this weekend. Maximizing the sensitive rectangles is a good idea. It does not affect the skins visually, but it makes the keys easier to hit. I performed this operation on all the skins in my collection years ago, using ...

Re: UPDATE: DMCP-3.17 / DM42-3.15rc1

None of the changes since 2.5.16 affect the DM42. Most of them are OS-specific changes for iOS and MacOS, and 2.5.17a will have more changes for iOS and Android. The only change to the simulator core since 2.5.16 is a fix for a memory leak in core_paste(), and that function is not used by the DM42. ...

Re: Wrong Space/MEM-sizes after saving a calculatorstate

The amount of memory shown by shift-[CATALOG] [MEM] is the amount of free memory available in the DM42 calculator program (i.e. for saving user programs or variables) and is not directly related to the amount of space a state file takes when stored. The state file is *not* simply a byte dump of of ...

Re: Matrix Viewer

I'm having a problem getting the state file to load. I get the message " State File Corrupt" Update your DM42 to the in just published "release candidate" version 3.17, then it will work. I had the same problem before that. Yes, that error message is a bit unfortunate. Free42 2.5 and later makes a ...
