Flags status DM42

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.

Flags status DM42

Post by PierreMengisen »

I wrote a little program to get the state of the 100 flags of my MD42. The white squares represent the active flags.
At the same time I attached a reference OFFIMAGE of the flags.
greetings

Sweet! It's great to be able so see all the flags at a glance. Thanks.

If I buy someone a drink to congratulate them, is it a Mazel Tov cocktail?

Nice looking output! Thanks for sharing this.

What SIZE is needed to run?

Update: Seems to be 83.

Run time is near-instantaneous, even on batteries. Impressive. :)

Hello Bob.
I use the regs 81 and 82. But we can use 01 and 02 without further ado. I'm used to working with personal records 81 to 99.

Great program...thanks.

I used the menu and/or help buttons to see the Flags meaning. re: OFFIMAGE. Or you can re-arrange the Flag meaning into a suitable table format in the help file to see everything.

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.

The BSIGNED and BWRAP functions are toggles, so in order to set those modes programmatically, you'll have to combine them with a flag test. For example, to turn on BWRAP mode, use FC? 79 BWRAP, and to turn it off, use FS? 79 BWRAP.

Thomas, do you know why these explanations don't show up DM42HELP.HTM? They are very useful. In any case thank you for your explanations.

The DM42HELP.HTM file is maintained by SwissMicros, not by me. I assume they just didn't think to update it to reflect these flag changes, most of which are fairly recent.

2017-03-11: release 1.5.14 -- flag 31
2019-04-07: release 2.2 -- flag 67
2019-05-11: release 2.2.1 -- flag 64
2019-07-01: release 2.4 -- flags 78 & 79

Or, well, recent relative to the age of Free42 overall, anyway. :D
