Re: 43S News

With reference to last week's discussions on polls, left/right and operator sequence, my comment is simply to be extremely grateful to the developers. Also that it is done in open source. I propose not to argue with the developers on their choices, but simply motivate or ask as potential user for ch...

Re: 43S News

I have to say... Your modified/unofficial layout is *exactly* what I would prefer myself: 1) Math operators on the right --- just like the 34S and other "late" RPN calcs 2) top-to-bottom order of math operators matches 34S and other late RPN. 3) XEQ / ↑ / ↓ / EXIT on left with same order as on 34S ...

Re: 43S News

I further tested the Mac version of the WP43S emulator by doing arbitrary computations, and looking at the manual for guidance: A. Issue: The angular mode example on p119 of the v0.12 manual does not work in the step when 0.01047 rad needs to be converted to degrees using >DEG. The R>D command does ...

Re: CAVEAT AVCTOR (WP34S)

... In consequence, I refuse to participate in this rip-off. ...If you don't need a printed copy, however, you can get a personalized pdf of the WP34S Manual and Calculation Guide of 2015 (version 3.3 build 3778) directly from me for a donation of 9.00 US$ to the WP34S project (renewing my offer of...

Re: 43S News

Thank you for the reminder. I do realise this.

My thoughts were that I will have to make an overlay and make stickers for the buttons, as both the shifted labels and primaries will be different due to the swap. The tail can’t wag the dog and even though not ideal, it is what it is.

Re: 43S News

Good to know that it’s possible. Since I know how now and I am concerned that having two opposing ways (op’s left in normal mode, and op’s right in USER mode) while having one set of DM42 buttons only, may lead to frustration. If this is avoidable, I will pursue the way of eliminating the confusion,...

Re: 43S News

I scratched in the WP43S emulator code and found some good reasons why some or all of the dev team won't entertain the idea of officially changing the operators to the right hand side of the calculator. I was under the impression (at least from posts from the golden age, left elsewhere) that every ...

Re: 43S News

13. I am very keen to try modify the (WP43S) code to stick with the DM42 hardware layout, i.e. swapping the lower 4 keys on the left with the right. I scratched in the WP43S emulator code and found some good reasons why some or all of the dev team won't entertain the idea of officially changing the...

Re: 43S News

No it does not require new stickers. You can flash it and try out on the standard layout.

Re: 43S News

What is a WP34C? WP34C is a branch of the main WP34S which includes the Complex Lock functionality, which basically is a selectable mode locking all operations to complex mode. This mode allows entry of the complex parts in natural REAL, IMAG order and removes the need to press CPX before each comp...
