Re: WP34S for the DM42

Nice Massimo!!

It's been a long time since seeing such program listings which include elegant statements like "DECIMAL-POINT IS COMMA." which ironically must be followed by a period to be syntactically correct. Ah... the elegance of COBOL... :)

Re: WP34S for the DM42

For those who might wonder how the QRG looks like, here is a picture with my DM42 and the QRG printed on a simple paper sheet: https://nsa40.casimages.com/img/2021/05/04/mini_210504043625479255.jpg I like the green / white paper style Didier! But it makes me want to see Fortran or Cobol listings......

Re: DM42 resets during program run

There is a confirmed memory leak in Free42 v3.0.2, which occurs if you are using some of the new commands introduced in the most recent versions (3.01/3.02), perhaps that is the cause? If using these, I would have guessed that the problem would occur well before 100+ hours of run-time, but I don't f...

Re: DM42 resets during program run

So one of the questions: is DM42 the right tool? Not for entire solar system model. But for checking bits and pieces, intermediate results, etc. – yes, it’s the best easy-to-use, program-in-an-instant, usually sufficiently accurate tool I know of. Short answer: No, it's not. I can't fathom any real...

Re: UPDATE: DMCP-3.21 / DM42-3.18 and dynamic stack extension

On a typical Mac, you can probably use millions of stack levels before running out of memory, whereas on a DM42, that limit is closer to ~1000 levels; the platform simply does not as much RAM as your Mac, which probably has many GBytes of RAM available.

Re: Login keys expiring?

Maybe the forum refuses to recognize the cookie if it's coming from a different IP address than the one it was originally issued for? That would explain why my laptop is unaffected, it tends to stay at home... I'll keep an eye on it, maybe I get logged out when I try to access the forum while I'm a...

Re: Login keys expiring?

I'm here 95% of the time using Firefox on Windows and have not had this issue.

Likely not much help, but thought I'd add a simple data point.

Re: New Help File ?

That was reported after the file was updated, and as the "DEC/DEG" typo is trivially obvious to any reader, not worth another update IMHO.
