8bit hex value into alpha-register...how?

Post by mcc »

Hi,

Following code:

Code: Select all

0.015
STO 00
LBL 00
HEXM
RCL 00
AIP
AVIEW
STOP
ISG 00
GOTO 00
...but it put 0.....9,10,11,12,13,14,15 into the alpha register. Positioning HEXM after recalling 00 does not help either...

Is there a way to write values in hexadecimal notation into the alpha register without implementing
the conversion oneself?

Cheers!

Use ARCL instead of AIP. AIP always appends the value in decimal regardless of the active base mode, while ARCL does honor the base mode.
