Re: Does CORRECT and SETAF, RCLAF work on the DM41X ?

It's the same procedure as for the DM42, and there was a whole thread about it: https://forum.swissmicros.com/viewtopic.php?f=17&t=2007&start=90 Simply put: ppm is parts-per-million, so measure the time drift in seconds between two moments a million seconds apart ;-) That's your ppm; use it...

I think the question was for programs, in which case I understand that the LF character from the alpha menu executes a line feed when the string is viewed through AVIEW. Otherwise presumably the poster would have found LF in the alpha menu as well?

Re: Too many labels for XEQ

Directories on the 48 are distinguished in the VAR menu by having a little tab sticking out of the top of the menu label. It's just a little one-pixel-thick line segment, but it is effective. Like a short line segment on one side at the top to imitate a tab? I previously thought about this, but I (...

Re: How to enter goose symbol (▶)?

Yes, they had to do that because within the existing character set, they wouldn't have been able to create matching labels for the Z and T registers. Of course adding small-caps versions of those letters would have been an option as well, but just using the existing uppercase letters instead was un...

Re: Too many labels for XEQ

How about something simple? Maybe add a "DIR" instruction that collapses all of the global labels between the "DIR" and the next "END" or "DIR" into a submenu? For example: 01 LBL "TVM" 02 DIR "TVMFUNC" 03 LBL "N" 04 LBL "I%...

Re: How to enter goose symbol (▶)?

ʏ (129) 128 and 129 are used for the X: and Y: labels for those two stack registers; the X in those labels is a regular lowercase x. This explains my inkling that the Free42/42S and DM42 register labels look different (beside the default font choice). It seems like DM42 replaced the X register labe...

There are a few more in addition to ▸: ▒ (4 and 30) ↵ (13) ␛ (27) ├ (127) : (128) ʏ (129) 128 and 129 are used for the X: and Y: labels for those two stack registers; the X in those labels is a regular lowercase x.

Re: How to enter goose symbol (▶)?

Short answer, you can't. This is quite simply a symbol that is not accessible directly on the keyboard. Other than using the decoder/encoder , the only way to get it into the alpha register is by adding character with code 6: 6 XTOA 6 XTOA That’s it Thanks for your quick responses! It seems like th...

Re: How to enter goose symbol (▶)?

Sorry, I thought that there was "ascendant compatibility" between HP41C and HP42s instructions = same instructions give same result on both calc (except for precision). The character set and code points for symbols have been revised for the 42S. See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/FOCAL_cha...
