HP 35s Emulator Software - Richard Garner - 07-13-2007

When the HP 33s came out HP also offered an emulator that teachers only could get. Will HP offer an emulator of the HP 35s as well? If it does I hope this time it will be available to everyone, not just teachers. I would think an emulator would be useful to everyone who owns one, not just for the very few who qualify.

      Good luck with this. At the time, I did my best to try and get the HP33S emulator in order to be able to create programs for it and then write and publish articles featuring said programs, with the idea of ultimately making freely available a sizable amount of useful software for that newly introduced machine and provide some service to the community.

      But, not being a teacher, it proved impossible. And of course there was no way I'd buy it, so the programs were never created and the articles about it were never written. A real pity, as I had so many useful self-developed math and engineering software for such machines as the HP-34C and the HP-67/97 which I intended to convert and upgrade for the HP33S and which might have proven useful to many ...

      In other words, get a seat lest you'll tire of waiting for the "free-for-all" HP35S emulator.

Best regards from V.

Do you anticipate that you might buy a 35s? I'm sure that all of us who are eagerly purchasing one would love to see your self-developed math and engineering programs ported to it, if you were inclined to do so.

Best Regards

Hi, Jeff:

    "Do you anticipate that you might buy a 35s?"

      Yes, I'm taking affirmative actions to get hold of one as fast as possible, no matter the price, precisely for the very purposes you suggest below.

      I know for certain that it would be better to wait for the the next revision, when most important bugs eventually discovered will have been removed and perhaps some physical aspects have been improved, but for the purpose of upgrading my existing software or creating new routines expressly for it, an allegedly bug-ridden, flea-ridden Mark 1 version will do.

    "I'm sure that all of us who are eagerly purchasing one would love to see your self-developed math and
    engineering programs ported to it [...]"

      Thanks a lot for your interest and kind words, that's exactly the idea. I couldn't do it for the HP33S as it was my intention because I was unable to get hold of the emulator despite repeated attempts, and I certainly wasn't purchasing one no matter what (or even accepting one as a gift) as I really dislike it and didn't want that thing in my home.

      But the HP35S is entirely another matter so as soon as I can get one I'll finally be able to fulfill that goal of mine ( ... does this rhyme with "gold mine" ? Oh well ...)

Best regards from V.

Send me an address, and I'll mail you a working 33s, if that'll help the community. I won't guarantee the latest display or bug-fixes, but it will be otherwise a perfectly functional example.

(Besides, its value has decreased somewhat, in light of recent developments!)

Paul,

While I certainly won’t presume to speak for Valentin, I wondered if you overlooked his statement regarding the 33s:

(The bold emphasis is mine.)

Shows you how closely I read the other post.

My apologies for even suggesting such a thing.
