Load/save extended memory files from/to FAT

The Beta programme is where a device becomes fully formed. If you have any suggestions for features to integrate into the DM41X then feel free to make them here. We can't guarantee that they'll all end up in the final product but we'll certainly consider all sensible proposals.

Load/save extended memory files from/to FAT

Post by Boub65 »

Everything is in the title...

3 types of extended memory files :
PROGRAM: we already have .raw extension for them
ASCII: they could take the .txt extension in FAT
DATA: we eiher can have an extension (.data?) or NO EXTENSION in FAT (data file could be an ascii file with the records on each line stored/read as a number)

All these files can be stored/loaded from /PROG/ directory
Or
/PROG/ directory coud also be renamed "/CONTENT/" directory for all 3 types of files...

Just brainstorming...
2xDM15L, DM41L, DM42 SN#00855 (+one lost during shipping), DM41X #00707
TI-89 titanium, CASIO fx-cg50 (to play with micropython)

There are three kinds of people in the world: those who know math and those who don't.

I'd really like to have this feature too. It would make the calculator quite handy for collecting data and then exporting a file that could be loaded into Excel or the like for further manipulation.

If all goes well, you'll both eventually be happy! :)

But I can't say when, and absolutely cannot confirm any unannounced products or features... 8-)

Neat! That's good enough for me for the time being.
