Re: 43S News

Small suggestion Walter - post this latest keyboard layout along with a couple screen shots (using the current DM42 LCD) so folks can see them together. It seems many people cannot understand the various shift planes without actual sample screens to illustrate. There have clearly been a lot of refin...

Google believes the quoted passage says "Man is different, I think he is very cute".

I presume alternate translations also exist?

I got a bunch of little details wrong at first, but this wasn't one of them. 8-)
I salute you sir for your inquisitive nature!

There is just no knowing just what a truly OCD mind will do next, but I personally take great comfort in that! ;)

Re: BUG? or my missunderstanding: Number display

On the real HP-42S, ALL mode always shows all significant digits, in fixed-point notation if it can, and scientific notation otherwise. .... Thanks for the explanation Thomas. I'll bet this is one of the odd little quirks of the 42S that you didn't guess right on the first try... Who would? But wit...

Re: BUG? or my missunderstanding: Number display

Both numbers are of the same magnitude. Both are the results of arithmetic calculations. And both are displayed differently. I dont understand, why..... And if there is no reason, this may be a bug. Tested with my DM42 with firmware 3.3 The 2 numbers are not of the same magnitude, though approximat...

Re: [DM15L M1B V25] DIM error when > 99

Reset, MEM shows 19 211 0-0 99 DIM (i), MEM shows 99 131 0-0 I'm seeing the same thing on my DM15L, thanks for confirming. I'd guess this means that when DM modified the 15C ROM to support larger memory, they did not (or did not correctly) change the required area to allow the Storage Register port...

Bob,
Even with an empty calculator (0 program steps) it won't allow to set more than 99 registers.
When empty (no program steps stored), what does MEM show, for default (after reset) and after setting to 99 registers?

Re: [DM15L M1B V25] DIM error when > 99

I wanted to use as max registers as I could... but was stopped by an "Error 10" when trying to size the regs allocation to 200 regs. try : 200 DIM (i) then you get an "ERROR 10" Storage registers and program memory are allocated from the same pool of memory. If you currently have program steps save...

Re: program editor line-insertion issue

I agree, but I would also like to point out that this has been discussed here already, and quite recently: /viewtopic.php?f=17&t=476&p=5569#p5569 . Yes, I didn't mention that explicitly (should have...) and my goal of explaining the behavior (which I explored after your initial post) was to hopeful...

Re: program editor line-insertion issue

Note that sometimes it appears to push the lines below it down properly, while at other times it overwrites the next line and the 'hidden' line is not restored until the current line entry is completed, as described above. For this fragment: 01 LBL "AAA" 02 STO 00 03 X 04 COS If your cursor is on li...
