Re: DM41X ED$ Bug in SLOW-mode

So I will conclude that the modules I write that rely on timing loops in certain situations do not work well on the DM41X. Just a couple of side notes. The simulator I make handles animation of the display quite nicely. There is no magic or any secret how it is done for anyone that cares to ask me h...

Re: DM41X ED$ Bug in SLOW-mode

How do you handle the timing loops that do exist when running in fast mode? Examples include: Pause timer Various keyboard debounce Alpha register scroll Long program line scroll Blink timer, i.e. pressing a key that is not allowed while entering a number Catalog timers NULL test ED GETKEY Alarm bli...

Re: DM41X ED$ Bug in SLOW-mode

How do you write code that behaves "good" in fast mode? Is there a similar feature in DM41X as there is in the NEWT to annotate instruction sequences that need to run at normal speed?

Re: Automatic stack lift enable / disable

You are confusing digit entry and stack lift flag enabled (push flag). They are two different things. Digit entry is about pressing multiple keys to form a number. On the HP-41 it is always ended when you do something else than add or remove to the number being entered, except for pressing SHIFT or ...

Re: no ROM no fun

To give some help with my modules, they are all on Github Congratulation, looks exemplary, a role model. Reminds me the saying, you never get a second chance to make a first impression. Honestly, I only scanned through the TOC to see if I could make use of it. Ladybug seems to be a remake of HP16C,...

Re: no ROM no fun

Someone who wants to do research could dig into this and document the evolution of ROMs. For example, the CCD could be discussed in depth and how it has transformed into other single page modules, part of it went to the Advantage module and so forth. You could study how unit conversions came about, ...

Re: Conflicting XROM numbers / ROM map / AMC OS/X

Seems like I have an uphill battle here, LOL The truth is that per design it is allowed. It is not any worse than running an arbitrary RPN program that makes use of plug-in modules and inserting the wrong module that happens to have same XROM number. A random function is executed. As long as the mod...

Re: Is purchasing DM16L as well as DM42 redundant?

A DM41X with Håkan Thörngren‘s Ladybug module is also a great alternative. Being the author of this module I can only say that once I got it properly working, my HP-16C has only been used a couple of times thanks to being smaller and easier to bring. I took the batteries out of my HP-16C a month ag...

Re: Conflicting XROM numbers / ROM map / AMC OS/X

I kind of feel that having a message that says there is a duplicate XROM is enough. You can save some ROM space by not rubbing in that it is bad. ;)

Re: Where are 'modules' documented?

Press R/S inside CAT 2. Then to view the contents of the module header shown press ENTER. You can use R/S to start and stop the rolling display, SST/BST when stopped to single step in the catalog. You may want to consult the Games application pac manual. There are scans available as pdf and similar....
