Don't type the final END. It's not needed if this is the only program in memory.
Doh! Wish I had thought of suggesting that, and this is not even the first thread with a program so tight that it could not fit with the extra END. Thanks for entering it to find out the cause.

Re: [DM41L] memory/register usage does not match HP41C (?)

But, impossible to do a "SIZE 238" (you get the "PACKING/TRY AGAIN" message)! the maximum that can be performed is "SIZE 237" which allows calculation of ONLY 1150 digits. :( Key Assignments and Alarms also can take up RAM, so make sure there are none of those when you set SIZE. Also, PACK (or GTO....

Re: In HEX mode "A..F" screen menu mapped to both softkeys and first row of function keys

In HEX mode (BASE->HEXM) selecting the submenu "A..F" does not correctly remap the screen menu to the softkey row only. The second row of keys (Sum, 1/x, etc.) is also reassigned to access the screen menu (as in original 42). I am running Firmware v3.4a Good catch, confirmed. Amazing that this has ...

Re: [42S] Electrical Engineering Solutions

There are commands provided for saving and recalling configurations (i.e. mode settings, formats selected, and user assignments all in one): STOCFG destination and RCLCFG source . Destination can be any register or variable. Source should be a register or variable used as destination before. I'm un...

Re: [42S] Electrical Engineering Solutions

Here are the different programs from the HP 42S Electrical Engineering Solutions book. You need the book to know how to use them, and you can find it on the hpmuseum document set .... @Didier - Very nice package Didier, very complete providing programs in multiple formats, but I also had never cons...

Re: 43S News

Which doesn't mean one should just stop trying. :mrgreen: (Just kidding. Speaking as a long-time user of the HP-41 and HP-42S, and finding myself thoroughly indifferent on the operators-on-the-left vs. operators-on-the-right issue.) I agree; I can use, and am happy with both layouts; even the Enter...

Re: 43S News

Why are the operators /*-+ on the left and the exit, up, down... on the right? Warning, religious topic under discussion.... The WP-34S, and to a lesser but still true extent the 43S, are motivated by the HP-34C (and to a lesser extent by the 42S) by folks that cut their RPN teeth on pre-Pioneer HP...

Re: 43S News

Exactly what I meant Walter, thanks!

These obviously help to better understand and visualize the 43S, and will help to fast-forward the folks that aren't familiar with either the 34S that has been delivered, or the scope of the 43S yet to come.

How long before people start asking 'how long' ?
