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 : ...

Re: UPDATE: DMCP-3.21 / DM42-3.18b2 BETA RELEASE

No. The code changes in question were made after 3.0.1 was released, and the problem with the changes was fixed before 3.0.2. So you should be fine with Free42 3.0.1 and 3.0.2.

(Free42 3.0.2 does contain several bug fixes, but the complex number issue never affected any official Free42 release.)

Could well be. I think they approved the update within half an hour or something. :D

Re: New Free42 utilities: inconsistent (?) behaviour at long button press

The long press trick only works with functions with no parameters. For functions with parameters, the calculator goes into command entry mode immediately, displaying the function name and prompting for the parameter... unless it's a PRGM-only function and you're doing it in RUN mode. The same thing ...

Re: Bug in FUNC and LNSTCK?

There are a few changes in the Android version, but it's minor stuff. New icon, different default directory in the file selection boxes, and added requestLegacyExternalStorage="true" in the app manifest, to enable access to /sdcard on devices with Android 10. Nothing that should cause a cr...
