How active is the development of NewRPL? Looks sparse on their website. I like the idea of having NewRPL on SM hardware. That is something I can live with. I have several programs written for my HP48G/50G that are important enough for me to always have a big drawer full of physical calculators in great condition. It is becoming harder to find HP48G series calculators. It is also painfully slow when running a calc that takes 7-10 minutes that you need to run 120 times. On my iPhone it is instant but having a dedicated hardware calculator on my desk in production would make me sleep easier.jonmoore wrote: ↑Wed May 20, 2020 3:39 pmNewRPL can also be flashed onto the HP-39gs and the HP-40gs as well as the 49g+ and the 50g. Considering you can expect to pay no more than $10-50 for said hardware, it's a really great way to try newRPL on the cheap. Don't be fooled by the lowly status of the 39gs an 40gs (as education market calculators), they both feature the same 75Mhz processor as the 50g. But you obviously have less flash memory to play with, lack of sd card etc etc - but on the plus side the have far more generous RAM that the 48!
One of the biggest benefits of newRPL is that many of the programs found at hpcalc.org can be utilised with minimal changes, some with no changes at all.
N.B Apologies for any typos, I wrote this post without my reading glasses (long story).
I purchased the DM42 solely to support SM. I am going to learn how to use it and hope something happens with DM48.
