It's not a matter of silence, more a matter of feeding my HP fix :)

Re: When will we get an up to date DM42?

I think there's only been two Free42 changes that are relevant to the DM42, since the latest DM42's v2.2 and the current Free42 v2.5.9, namely the configurable word size, and a couple of fixes to SOLVE.

I'd quite like to see the former, but it doesn't seem like an emergency. Why is waiting a problem?

Re: state file sharing

thanks very much Thomas, I thought that might be the case. In that case, if any SM folk are reading, please consider this a request to add such functionality. An alternative, or short-term workaround (once the DM42 has Free42 2.5), might be a separate tool to convert between the two formats, optiona...

Re: Sunrise/Sunset

hi Jeff, one suggestion…

You may want to add a CLMENU at the start; otherwise, if a previously-run program set up keys > 3, they will re-appear when you show your MENU, which looks messy. Your program still works fine.

thanks again for a great utility.

state file sharing

Apologies if this has been asked before; the forum's search feature won't let me search for such "common terms".

Is there any way to convert/extract from a DM42 state file so that it may be used with Free42, e.g. on desktop, Android, etc?

thanks very much.

Re: DM41X vs DM42 vs WP-34S...

good points burkhard, thanks. I think I'd call it more a complete rewrite, not just an upgrade. sorry, that's not what I meant. I agree, and I'd already said "design a new system from scratch". Here, I simply meant that the 34S isn't a hardware product, but a new firmware that is applied to an exist...

Re: DM41X vs DM42 vs WP-34S...

One way to look at it would be that the DM42 and DM41X are intended to be modern versions of existing calculators, namely the HP-42S, and HP-41CX. So choosing between those two is really a choice based on those existing RPN machines, both of which are extensively documented. The WP-34S (and forthcom...

Re: Put in function from Catalog

I suppose also, if you didn't have the manuals etc with you, it might be handy just to know what is available, or to remind you of the name of a function that you know is there but can't remember what it's called. And since the inbuilt XEQ didn't have name-completion, unlike Ángel's and others' offe...
