Re: A better way to produce 400x240 1-bit images

Thanks, the stuw-driel is based on my own photograph. Nice picture! It looked familiar even though I've never been to Driel, but it turns out that the ones at Amerongen and Hagestein look exactly the same. I must have visited the one at Amerongen on a high school field trip. (Note: The English word...

Re: Free42 bugs discovered and fixed.

Hmmm, I didn't make any changes to the state file logic in 3.0.4. If you run into this State File Corrupt again, please let me know!

Re: Free42 bugs discovered and fixed.

I thought the complex matrix bug was serious enough to warrant an immediate release (it's the first item in the release notes for 3.0.4). All the other stuff is minor, it's just what happened to have accumulated since 3.0.3.

Re: External stack

RTN will clear the return stack, which includes all local variables. That should free up all the memory that was allocated by a recursive function. There's no garbage collector in Free42, and none is needed, since objects are freed immediately when they are deleted using CLP, CLV, CLST, and RTN. OK...

Re: External stack

Is there a way to clean the occupied memory, or is there a garbage collector in DMCP or in Free42 ? RTN will clear the return stack, which includes all local variables. That should free up all the memory that was allocated by a recursive function. There's no garbage collector in Free42, and none is...

That's odd, "[LF]" is supposed to get translated to the LF character (code 10) when you paste it into Free42...

What happens when you run the same test case in Free42?

Re: External stack

How do you enter LSTO in Free42 and on the DM42? Is it documented anywhere? Use XEQ and spell out "LSTO" using the ALPHA menu: XEQ "LSTO" [XEQ] [ENTER] [√x] [√x] [LN] [1/x] [LN] [√x] [LOG] [1/x] [ENTER] Or use the PRGM sub-catalog in the second row of CATALOG: [Shift] [+] [▼] [L...

Re: The unused top function key

Well, a fully customizable keyboard, like the HP-41 USER mode, is on my list, but low priority, after I've done everything else I have planned. It will probably get a bit messy, since keyboard handling in Free42 is rather complex as it is... :oops:

Re: The unused top function key

Thomas, by the way, have you ever considered to add dedicated custom keys to free42 just like DM42 - I know that HP42s don't have that, I also know that some skins are providing that - but those dedicated custom keys greatly increase free42 usability [...] Not really, no... What would such dedicate...
