Re: DM41X Beta Programme

How would I make HEPAX work?

For some reason, my DM41X (sn088) freezes as I try to plug it (it may be other reasons for that, though)

Re: Programmatic control of writing to file system

That would solve all my HP-IL use cases and could in fact replace a one-way HP-IL. A read-from-file could replace HP-IL entirely.

Re: Programmatic control of writing to file system

Yes, that could be done. Would it be possible to add a "print to file" command to programatically print either pure alphanumerics or even raw programs to file? That seems by far the easiest approach and would in the simplest of ways provide an interface with the outside world (a poor man's...

Programmatic control of writing to file system

Use case: Control my telescope (mount) with an DM41X. I can do this with an HP-41 hooked up top my PC via HP-IL/PIL-box, send coordinates by printing then add strings via HP-IL to my PC where a Ruby program is listening and forwarding the coordinates to an INDI server running on my PC which in turn ...

Re: DM41X

On reflection, I can easily settle with something even easier. If I could have two commands on the 41 side, I would be happy: One that can save a text file to a place in the file tree and one that can read such a text file. Because if I have this, I can run a program on the 41 that polls for changes...

So it is not sure that HP-IL will be supported.
HP-IL would be great (as it would facilitate connecting to a world of devices) - but my basic requirement is more basic - just any bi-directional programatically manageable link.

Re: DM41X

I saw the HHC 2019 video on the DM41X. Great stuff. I have one request: I would need some sort of live programmable connection to the machine. A way to do bidirectional communication via the USB connection would be just fine - as long as I can access that connection on both the PC and the 41X. The u...
