Feature requests

After owning my DM42 for about a year, I'm still really enjoying it. I had a few feature ideas/requests for future firmware versions. All of these are obviously extensions of HP-42S behavior (much like full stack display, date and time functions, etc.). At the same time, they could all be set to the...

Re: 43S News

Colored keys (and keypad feel) are a definite plus for me.

I wonder if it's not worth looking into the computer keyboard community for vendors who do custom keys?

Re: Txt to Raw and Raw to Txt

So it's not perfect, but I finally got around to writing an encoder in Python to convert programs to raw files. Maybe I will add decoding to it at some point, though I hope Swiss Micros just enables text import/export of programs directly on the DM42. It is already built into Free42 after all. I mak...

Printer options?

Any plans to do anything on the printer front? I'd love a IR to USB adapter or something that would let me interface with available POS printers or act as a keyboard (for direct text entry into a text editor). The print to file feature is great, but it involves switching modes on the calculator, plu...

Re: 43S News

I'm assuming the WP43S will be based off of the DM42 hardware with no hardware modifications. The 'exit'/on/off key on the DM42 is depressed more than all of the other keys. I would find it extra annoying if the '+' key was depressed. Also, the four keys at the left side of the DM42 machine are sma...

Re: 43S News

Let's take a look at ALL these portrait RPN calculators after the 41. They are all in the following arrangement a) ENTER left b) Math operators right c) Math operator order top to bottom = [/ , * , - , + ]. The ENTER is not above the math operators on any of them! I don't really get a vote here sin...

Re: Printing and Thermal Printers etc

Also interested in this. I'd love it if there were a simple USB IR receiver that dumped the 'printout' to a file on the host computer.

Re: Txt to Raw and Raw to Txt

Yes, adapting the online converter would work well. Can we get access to that code?
