Contributions to this software library are always welcome. Please ensure that you post program listings rather than .raw files. They give a reasonable idea of what your program does without having to load them into a DM42 and you can also include comments in your code. Check out the following link for a decoder/encoder: https://technical.swissmicros.com/decoders/dm42/

You can then copy/paste the listing and post it in "code" tags.

Microscope Reticle Measurement Software

Post by richmit »

I spend a lot of time measuring things using zoom microscopes equipped with an eyepiece reticle. For zoom scopes this involves a little bit of arithmetic to convert from Reticle units to mm. Some scopes have zoom stops (like 0.625) that make mental arithmetic more error prone that I would like. So I wrote a little program to store the most common scope configurations I use, and do the conversions for me. I can't believe it took me so long to write this one. I use it all the time!

It's not really a "download and go" kind of program because you need to modify it to have your preferred scope settings. Still, I figured it might be a useful starting point for someone.
