DOW returns a number, not a string (Sun=0, Mon=1, etc.)
Yes, but when executed from the keyboard, DOW also displays the day of the week as a 3-character string.
I don't think I ever noticed that before on Free42. Thanks.

Re: time and date math

One thing I don't understand: the time and date functions, which are Free42 extensions to the HP-42S functions. When I call the DATE function, the X-register is: 2,020.0813 This is exactly what I expected. I prefer YMD, and the top strip om my calculator displays 2020-08-13. However, when I call th...

Re: time and date functions

I have had my DM42 (S/N 05503) for a couple of weeks. It's been more than a quarter century since I've used a similar calculator (HP-48), so there's a lot for me to remember, understand, and explore. One thing I don't understand: the time and date functions, which are Free42 extensions to the HP-42...

Re: Can't install LibUSB on Windows 10

Why is it still on line? Still on line as it is required if an update to the newer system has not been made. That is there was a versions xxx.xx that from beta to that version required the old method. There may still be existing units that have a version between beta and xxx.xx out there. Once vers...

Re: Announcment regarding shift-Key Color Wear

I like the clickier feel of the older keyboard and after flexing the keys, have no trouble with them registering at all. Plus I like the yellow key being molded in color. I'll never wear off the color. My DM41x, OTOH, feels like mush and the yellow paint disappeared quite a while ago. Interestingly...

Re: Can't install LibUSB on Windows 10

You will probably have to install that as an unsigned driver.

Here's a site that explains options:

Re: SHOW on DM42

My opinion is that Thomas and Didier know more about this than I do. :D

And they're faster too! :lol:

Re: DM-42 in HP-41 font

Point being, every time I hear “goose” I think about my synthetic routine that ran the goose backwards with droppings. And that reminds me of the many fun HP-41 displays that decorated the HHC 2009 website , such as this one, which includes a backwards-flying goose with droppings! http://hhuc.us/20...

Re: UPDATE: DMCP-3.17 / DM42-3.15rc1

Did anything change regarding state files? Which reminds me: I mislabelled a state file (clumsiness) and want to rename it or delete it and start over but I haven't yet found any options for either. Possible? Assuming this is on a DM42.... 1. Connect the USB FAT drive 2. On your PC or MAC, use File...
