Re: modes and flags

Hmm, yes, instead of reassembling the flags using COMPLEX, it should be using something that always treats X and Y as rectangular. It shouldn't depend on the mode the calculator is in when the generated code is executed. I guess this will require a new instruction! It'll be two new instructions: RC...

Re: modes and flags

Q: Are all mode settings reflected by flags? Or do I need to set certain modes "manually" in the program nonetheless? Not all mode settings. WSIZE is not encoded in the flags, for one. Check the flags list in the manual to make sure, or just try it! Also, flags that are pure status indica...

Re: modes and flags

It works well when in RECT mode: the complex number created by the program is identical to the one from RCLFLAG, however in POLAR mode it's different, so you may not restore the flags to their original value if you work in polar mode. Hmm, yes, instead of reassembling the flags using COMPLEX, it sh...

Re: DM42 Firmware Update Policy

Plus42 for Windows, Mac, and Linux will be GPLv2-licensed just like Free42, only the Android and iOS versions will be closed source. From a licensing perspective, there is no reason not to run Plus42 on the DM42. There might be technical challenges, of course, like making it use the big screen prope...

Re: DM42 resets during program run

I don't know that I'll be posting again. Consensus seems to be I'm too far out of bounds in too many ways to be useful. I hope you keep posting! You're certainly pushing the Free42 / DM42 platform harder than most people, but I don't think there's anything wrong with that. If the DM42 crashes are d...

Is the memory leak that was fixed in 3.0.3 considered an unscheduled-update-worthy bug?
The plan is to release an update for the DM42 including Free42 3.0.3 next week. This will kick off the quarterly update schedule.

Re: DM42 Firmware Update Policy

Even if it doesn't, being able to respond with a link to the policy would be a win. I personally get a lot of use out of my FAQ because it allows me to respond to many questions by simply replying with a link to the appropriate FAQ item. It beats having to compose an actual message every time.

Re: free42 3.01 new comparison functions

Yes, the new comparison functions have a memory leak. This was fixed in Free42 3.0.3, but the DM42 firmware does not have that fix yet.

Re: free42 3.01 new comparison functions

They're in the PRGM sub-catalog: [Shift] [+] [▼] [LOG] [▼] for the comparisons with X, and another [▼] for the comparisons with 0. In 3.0.3, they're in sub-sub-catalogs of their own: [Shift] [+] [▼] [LOG] [▲], then [LN] for the comparisons with 0 or [XEQ] for the comparisons with X. Using them shoul...
