Hi,

I would like to have all firmware updates I do would work as smooth as this one did... :)
Works like a charme!
Thanks DM!
Thanks Thomas!
Great stuff!

Cheers!
Meino

EDIT: Sorry...it was misleading, what I wrote:
With "all firmware" I wanted to refer to firmware updates of OTHER devices like my Arduinos or my Longan Nano, which
offer quite some challenge by times when updated...the DM42 on the other hand has been always updated like a charme.

Very happy with the DM42... (apart from the key feel they're too stiff and the enter is only registering when I click the right side of it)

Hi,

Do I have to upate the help file seperately?

The Changelog (first post) says:
"AHelp file: Added description of Free42/DM42 flags"

...when I go through the flags listing of the help file I (for example) don't find the flag,
which indicates a pressed shift key prior to execute a program...others are also missing:

From this post:
viewtopic.php?f=19&t=2506&p=16171&hilit ... lag#p16171
The DM42 (and Free42) uses a few flags that are unused on the real HP-42S:

Flags 31 & 67: date format mode:
67 clear, 31 clear: MDY mode (default)
67 clear, 31 set: DMY mode
67 set: YMD mode

Flag 64: shift
This flag indicates whether or not Shift was active when the current keystroke occurred; it can be used to implement different behaviors for shifted and unshifted menu keys in programmable menu handlers (KEYX/KEYG).

Flag 78: BSIGNED mode
signed operation for BASE functions; default: set

Flag 79: BWRAP mode
wrapped operation for BASE functions; default: clear

Flags 36-80 are read-only so you can't use SF, CF, FS?C, or FC?C with them, but the date format and BASE modes can be controlled using the MDY/DMY/YMD functions and BSIGNED/BWRAP, respectively.
Cheers!

Hi Pierre,

thanks a lot :)

Short question: The new firmware allows links to user written additional files.
Is there any specification, what kind of html/DM42ml the browser of the DM42
understand?

Cheers!
Meino

Yes, that is all documented in a separate new help file (which is a .html file which you can open on a PC with a normal browser) that will be posted as a part of updated (for production release) help files for the DM41X; once the website has that file available, I'll come back here to post a link.

However the DM42 help file itself uses a vast majority of the available tags supported in the DMCP help browser, so examining the latest help file itself will be a good guide for most features, except the file linking, which was new with the 41X.

The DM41X help file for Release 2.0 can be found here:

http://technical.swissmicros.com/dm41x/ ... 201014.zip

This contains the 3 help files pre-installed on production DM41X devices:

41x.html - Primary DM41X help file with content about 41X-unique features and operations
am_help.html - Help content for various general interest 41 topics (not 41CX specific), written by Angel Martin
help_devel.html - Describes the DMCP help browser's capabilities, operations and supported tags, including linking to additional files

Note for DM42 users - The available keys for navigating the help content have expanded and improved a lot in this latest release, look for "Numpad-like navigation keys" near the top of the new help file.
