WP43* does also work the new non-trivial solution for 3 as well...

You find the answer to your question in the draft WP43S Reference Manual in Appendix F. Enjoy!

Jaymos,

How can we transform a DM42 in a WP43 ?
Note 43S is the original project which I call the main project and then there is my fork, the 43C which runs on a unmodified DM42. My fork does not exist without the main project - it is mainly UI changes.

Look at this vid that I made last year. Forward to 20:20 for a demo to see how easy it is.

Follow Walter’s instructions in the next post to find and install a WP43S PGM file.

Or go to page 1 of viewtopic.php?f=2&t=2216 for some links to a working WP43C file.

There are later pgm’s posted on later pages in the forum, off hand I think this is the latest one: http://cocoon-creations.com/download/WP ... -01-06.zip i.e. version 43C21L2 of Jan 2020.

@Walter and @ Jaymos

Thanks a lot for your replies...

I will dig them an tell you then.

This DM43C with « infinite » precision is so exiting :twisted:

You're welcome. :)

As Jaymos told you, the WP43S is the original featuring what you call infinite precision (actually it is finite but large, see my post above); the WP43C is a derivative of the WP43S with a modified UI. 8-)

"actually it is finite but large..."

I am old enough to understand :D

Thank you so much anyway !

But I was unable to compute "42", even "3" with my 42 and this is kinda unacceptable...

Phone Michael/David urgently, please, to fix that :lol:
