if in hexmode:
A | B | C | D | E | F
SL | SR | RL | RR | RLn | RRn (i.e toprow of a HP16C
Snn = switch to signed mode, wordlength=nn
Unn= switch to unsigned mode, wordlength=nn
FB = flip bytes FW = Flip words (ie AABBCCDD FB -> DDCC BBAA 000 000 and AABBCCDD FW -> CCDD AABB 0000 0000)
The third row does not have to be dynamic A B C ... because in Hex mode, the top row of keys (underneath the function keys) (labelled as A .. F) already work as hex digits A..F in HEX mode.
FB already is flip bit and cannot change. So I propose FBYTE.
For symmetry I would propose FWORD for FW.
With "signed" I assume you mean 2's complement.
So my rendition of your menu would be:
Code: Select all
S06 | S08 | S16 | S32 | S64 | FBYTE U06 | U08 | U16 | U32 | U64 | FWORD SL | SR | RL | RR | RLn | RRn
