Re: Possibility for comment lines?

Thanks all! I am currently waiting for my DM42, and of course I am looking for a method that works on both the DM41X and DM42. It looks like flag 14 would be a safe choice as well.

(The DM42 was shipped yesterday by Michael ... should be here early next week!)

Possibility for comment lines?

Of course RPN was designed to be efficient, so inline comments were not really an option on the classic HP calculators. But since the DM41X and DM42 don't have these limitations anymore; has anyone come up with a clever idea to insert comments in their programs? The only thing I can think of, is to ...

Re: Fancy Leather Cases

I think it's a shame that it has that hole, presumably to help with pushing out the device? I think so. But I think/hope it also helps prevent corrosion, since it allows a bit of air flow (more wishful thinking than anything else maybe). TBH, I never realised that one could ask for a model without ...

You forgot mentioning speed.
My daily calculator is a HP 11C :lol:

Looking at the proposed keyboard layout for the 43S, my initial conclusion is that it's overkill for me ;)

Re: Is purchasing DM16L as well as DM42 redundant?

So the question for me is; how much worth are the named variables, and the same UI between my phone and the calculator, for me? Taking into account that I already have a Beta DM41X unit, and the only difference with the production unit is the improved keyboard. Everybody's usage patterns will be di...

Re: Is purchasing DM16L as well as DM42 redundant?

If you could have only one calculator, would the 42 or the 41 (in either of HP original or DM clones) be the more powerful? Even though the 42 is newer, it seems like the 41 might be more flexible and expandable overall. I'm a bit in the same boat; I could afford to buy one production level DM calc...

Re: Unclear "Save Raw Program" behaviour

If the Alpha register is not empty, than the DM tries to save the Program with the first LABEL with the name in the Alpha. If the are the letters "ABC" in the alpha then the DM tries to save the Program that has LBL "ABC" as the first label. If ABC is in alpha and there is no LB...

(Solved) Unclear "Save Raw Program" behaviour

I am running the latest firmware (2.1) on my DM41X, and I see something strange in the "Save Raw Program" file menu: When the Alpha register is empty, and I select "Save Raw Program" from the Setup -> File menu, the "<new file>" dialog asks me for the name, and the raw ...

Re: Fancy Leather Cases

The https://www.valenta.com/en/belt-cases page has quite a few. Do you know what model you gave? It's the Durban Black 4XL. That does have a belt loop, unfortunately, but it is flat, so it's not in the way fortunately. I bought them a few years ago, and the leather quality on mine is really good. I...
