Collection of functions for DM42/Free42 (updated on 2021-02-23)

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.

Then, does it work in Free42 v2.5.24 or above in iOS?
I've Free42 v.2.5.25 here (iPhone with iOS 14.5) and it works well.

My DM42 has Free42 2.5.20 and surely no FUNC function. So, let hope a quick firmware upgrade, isn't it? :)

Indeed. Lastly, I am building my own firmware using the latest work of Thomas Okken.

In Free42 all it's ok, but wanting to try these utilities in the DM42, I hope they can release the official firmware for the DM42 soon, with Free42 2.5.25 level.
Will it take long? thank you :-)

Note that I haven't created a tag for 2.5.25. But regardless, the changes in 2.5.24a and 2.5.25 don't affect the DM42, so it would be up to date with the current official Free42 release by running 2.5.24.

Yep. 2.5.25 contains just one change, a fix for a bug introduced in 2.5.21 that would cause <Not a Number> to appear if you tried to paste the number zero. Not a common scenario, unless you're pasting spreadsheet cells, as the user who reported the problem was doing. But since the DM42 doesn't have copy & paste, it is not affected by this.

When I fixed that bug, I was in the middle of some big changes on the master branch, so I created a branch just for the release, and afterward, merged it into master. So unlike normal releases, there was nothing to tag once I was done. But if SM use the tarballs from the "upstream" directory in my web site, they won't be affected by any of this.

Well,
however in 2.5.20 (the present level of DM42) some parts of the Fernando's utilities that use, I think "Func" don't work (in Free42 2.5.25 they do). At what patch level have you implement that function, please?

You'll want 2.5.24 or later for those.
