C43_106r+
I have a problem with storing arrays in variables (both in Windows and in DM42).
STO 00 is OK
STO MAT_A is not
Will check tx for the report.

The problem above is fixed. Thanks for reporting it. While bug hunting (this was a difficult one), I saw that the same bug also prevented you to recall any variable from the same VAR menu. You could do STO 'QQ' and RCL 'QQ' but you could not do RCL VAR and select QQ by function key. But that is now fixed too. This bug is a remnant of some changes 43S made 6 months or so ago and got imported and I never realised it broke things. More importantly I updated the code closer to 43S so that similar changes in future might more easily be recognised next time ;-)

I will do a release end of the weekend.

The bugfix detailed above and slightly more intuitive usage of the EXFRAC checkbox and g[a b/c] interaction.

The zip file contains the c43 simulator, L1 and L42 PGM files.

Everything is fine, thanks for the hard work and super fast.
There are some small problems with the display update. Do you want some examples or do we postpone them to later, for the final adjustment?
Greetings

Thanx,

If it has to do with:

1. the disappearing of text top left, in the f/g/NOP area,

2. the longpress function display top left during TAM mode (while inside the VAR menu),

3. the operation of EXIT,

it is known and won’t be fixed soon.

If anything else, I should know and list it as a bug.

I have found very little time to work on C43 the last 4 weeks, due to intense work pressure. This is not at all due to dwindling interest ;-)

I did spend the day though updating my prior work on the STATS module of WP43S and previous fixes which were not yet released here.

What I have, is just packaging of all the latest untested stuff in release 107 as follows:

C43 release, including the
  • c43.exe simulator,
  • C43 L1 and L42 DM42 versions (compiled on Mac),
  • WP43S_JM pgm version for DM42 (WP43S test version with flipped keyboard) (compiled on Mac and Win in case it makes a difference like the previous time),
  • WP43S_jm.exe Windows simulator compiled on my Dell, in case it makes a difference like the previous time)

The previous release was C43_106r+ on 4 Sept 2021, and a minor update is on Gitlab hash #558578d as rev 106s. There is no sense to distribute it as this has been superseded by the latest version 107. If 107 does not work good enough, then I will make a compiled version for 106s available.

Version 106s contained some changes based on feedback, including the activation sequence change of EXFRAC; a bugfix in STO VAR and RCL VAR; DRG when a complex number is in X; added some debug texts on screen; I fixed disk writing of stack which somehow broke; corrected a complex no to clipboard (in sim) and updated to WP43S rel 0.20.9.

Version 107 contains all the above, as well as a full change in the STATS and associated graphing storage and all the latest experimental features (solver) from WP43S. I have not had time to test these imports from WP43S, so, they may or may not work ;-)

Either way, 107 is here.

Good work on this. A couple of issues I’ve noticed in 107…

- Menu key mapping is off in places. <g> <4> opens the DATE/TIME menu instead of FIN, <f> <0> calls VIEW instead of HOME etc. There are others as well.
- CATALOG > MENUS sometimes raises an error in showSoftmenuCurrentPart for missing softmenu ID 1368.
