How to enter a right pointing triangle into a string in prgm mode?

Post by mcc » Mon Nov 12, 2018 7:09 am

Hi,

I have a program, which uses a right pointing triangle icon after a "Nexr"
menu item.
Since the triangle is not bound to a key sequence (right ?) I am unsure
how to enter tjis in program mode.

How can I do this?

Cheers!

6 XTOA is one way to append ► to alpha. Is that the character you're looking for?

hI,

yes, it is that character...but I want to insert it into a string of a program.
While in programming mode I have no curren stack / current X-value
from which I can XTOA (see my initial posting).

Cheers!

If you want, say, "A▸B" in a program, you'll have to write "A" 6 XTOA ├"B", so four program lines.

If you really want it to be one string, i.e. avoid the use of XTOA, then you'll have to edit the program outside of the calculator.

The DM42 encoder/decoder is a good place to create such strings.
For example enter in the listing windows:

Code: Select all

01▸LBL "TST"
02 "A▸B"
03 AVIEW
04 STOP
Encode and dowload the .raw to your DM42 (or Free42).

Hi,

thank you all for the kind help! :)
May be there will a way to directly input those "
keyless" characters without hacking the code.
Thomas ?
;)
