Re: UPDATE: DMCP-3.15

The DM42 program did not change, the fix was in DMCP, which did change from 3.14 to 3.15.

Re: UPDATE: DMCP-3.14 / DM42-3.14

So instead of the first soft menu entry cycling between "M>D>Y", "D>Y>M" and "Y>M>D" I would prefer cycling it through "MDY", "DMY" and "YMD". I don’t think that when you have only 3 options, showing the next one by it’s initial is useful. Just pressing the soft key until you get the date format yo...

Re: UPDATE: DMCP-3.14 / DM42-3.14

Can you please re-issue this update with the newest version 2.4.2 of Free42, or do we have to wait another four months to get the latest version of Free42 ? I'm curious - which features in Free42 2.3.x and 2.4.x are so compelling that a couple hours into this version of DM42 you're looking for the ...

Re: 43S News

Ok, for more roasting I will admit I never even really understood the need for a % function on a 'scientific' calc. If somebody wants to add 17,5% to 1234, (s)he can do easily via 1234 [ENTER] 1.175 [x]. Done. Ditto. The only one I find useful is %CH (Δ%). If my calculating needs were limited to my...

Re: 43S News

%T returns - according to my information - 100 x/y. If this is true then it's a challenge for me to understand the use of this function. Why not just use x/y and do the trivial rest mentally? What do I miss? %T preserves T, Z, and Y. This is the first thing I assign on the keyboard of any (non-fina...

Re: Store and Recall extra steps

For the clear command you requested, just make this tiny program:

LBL "CLAL"
CLRG
CLST
END

Then you can just XEQ CLAL.

Re: Encoder/decoder

That's something we Windows users aren't used to. We like choosing files from dialog boxes. Not this Windows user. 8-) Keyboard shortcuts are easier, faster and not as prone to oops. And even if you do somehow oops, Ctrl-Z fixes that too. My fingers have done this for so long, I sometimes have to l...
