Nice, my respect for this machine continues to grow.

Where do named variables go?

Presumably named variables get mapped to numbered registers somehow. Is there a lookup table somewhere or is it done some other way?

Re: [SHIFT] toggles function key set

Awesome - thank you! 3.13 installed. I'll start investigating flag 64.

Re: PUSH/POP stack

Thanks dude. Don't worry, I'm a retired IT guy with a new DM42 and time to burn. I will work it out.

Re: PUSH/POP stack

This looks brilliant! I am trying to understand what you are doing here, but what instruction/key does the symbol -> refer to ? Thanks. I did a similar think using indirect addressing but I think a matrix would work better and not conflict with other memory hungry apps such as statistical operations.

Re: MVAR vs INPUT

I will try that. Still very new to this calculator coming from a HP-41CV. Never used a HP-42S before.

Thanks.

Re: External stack

What registers are used by statistical functions? Would it help If I declared the external stack as a matrix perhaps? I haven't read much about those yet.

But, seriously, we have SO MUCH free memory on the DM42 surely I can find a quiet patch for my stack.

Excellent! I'll keep a close lookout for it.

Re: External stack

It was the side effects I was trying to eliminate. This scheme makes one-number functions operate the same as built-in function like SQRT and one value procedures work like PI or RCL. The X,Y,Z,T stack behaves as you would expect.

Re: Power OFF mode

Okay, thanks. I think I'll leave that well alone.

Seems I was somehow looking at an older user manual - D'oh!
