Full Version: Update for "HP41UC" utility (v1.22)
You're currently viewing a stripped down version of our content. View the full version with proper formatting.

"Happy New Year!" to all HP41 enthusiasts.

Urged by to Giuseppe Marullo, I've added the options to de-compile XROM 23, 25, 26, and 28... instead of just 25 and 26. I've e-mailed Dave Hicks about posting the update, so it should be available soon at the "Museum".

By default, the XROM functions are decoded unless you specify otherwise:

De-compiler Options:
/x - use [ XROM mm,ff ] for all XROM Functions
/x23 - use [ XROM 23,ff ]: [ XROM 23,1 ], instead of [ COPYFL ]
/x25 - use [ XROM 25,ff ]: [ XROM 25,46 ], instead of [ X<>F ]
/x26 - use [ XROM 26,ff ]: [ XROM 26,10 ], instead of [ CLOCK ]
/x28 - use [ XROM 28,ff ]: [ XROM 28,27 ], instead of [ AUTOIO ]

HP41UC can create either "Postcript" or "PCL" files, that can then be sent directly to a laser/inkjet printer (which supports Postcript or PCL, of course).

Sending a "print" file to the printer in Windows can
be kind of tricky, but there is a "freeware" utility
that does exactly that, and is called "PrintFile".
Here's a download link:


It's really pretty straight forward, give it try!

Now I print my bar codes on a PaintJet XL300 (HP made).
It has the postcript option slot. ;o)
It works slowly but surely.
However it's not handle like a ThinkJet HP2225B is.
Stupendous creation, Leo.
Thanks for all and best wishes for 2004.
Kind regards from Normandy.

The best for 2004 for you as well.

Although I prefer the "Postcript" output (quicker to print, and a bit nicer looking), the "PCL" output should work fine on most HP printers (after all, PCL is an "HP" brain-child!), including dot-matrix printers with "graphics" support.

Are you using "PrintFile" to dump the output file to the printer?

Best regards,
