Hi,
Happy to know that there's so much work in progress on this project.
I'm curious about the U> menu at g+6, what is it intended for?
In the list of data types, there are no "units". Will this machine support units à la 48/49/50?
Thanks & regards.

And about units, please allow me quoting the draft manual:
HTH, else continue asking.There is absolutely no need to enter units in your calculations. Just stay with a coherent set of units while calculating and you will get meaningful results within this set (the big advantage of SI is that it is the largest coherent set of units available on this planet). If you need to convert special inputs into units being part of such a set or you require results expressed in special units, however, [U>] or [L>] will help.

Unfortunately, many times, I cannot stay within a coherent set of units while calculating, so I will continue asking. Will it support commands equivalent to CONVERT, UBASE & UFACT in such machines?

 UBASE: converts one quantity in some units to the SI. E.g. from 1_pc/yr (parsec/year) one gets 977 813 106_m/s
 CONVERT: converts one quantity in some units to other units. E.g. from 1_pc/yr (parsec/year) and 1_knot one gets 1.90071662E9_knot
 UFACT: factors one quantity in some units to be expressed in terms of other unit. E.g. from 1_pc/yr and 1_mi (mile) one gets 607584.8954605_mi/s

1 pc/yr = pc/m / (yr/s) x 1 m/s , so you may key in:
Code: Select all
1 [g] [U>] {x:} {pc>m} returns 3.085 68x10^16
[EXIT] returns the top view of [U>].
1 {year>s} [/] returns 9.778 13x10^8 m/s immediately. Store it, e.g. via
[STO] 00
Code: Select all
{x:} [f] {nmi.>m} returns 1 852
60 [g] [x²] [/] returns 0.514 44 m/s directly. Thus,
[/] now returns 1.900 72x10^8 knots.
Code: Select all
[RCL] 00
[f] {m>mi.} returning 6.075 85x10^5 mi/s.

Re: 43S News
Not surprising, since 1 parsec is about 3.26 light years! But I suppose you could perform calculations with times and distances from different reference frames to get somewhat meaningful speeds in excess of 1 parsec per year.

Re: 43S News
It's not unrealistic at all. Just fold space!

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

How does a distance become smaller by folding?
