Inputting HEX numbers on a 35S - Steve Myers - 07-28-2007
Maybe I'm missing something simple here (hope so), but .. I want to write some programs to try and add some of the functionality of my 16C, but can't get this to work.
If I prompt for a number, then try to append BASE 6, I get INVALID DATA. Doesn't matter if I'm in HEX or DEC mode, it still errors. Re: Inputting HEX numbers on a 35S - Don Shepherd - 07-28-2007
Well, I tried it on mine, and you are right! You can't "program" the h, you've got to enter it with the number by using Base 6. Crappy!

Well, in the chance that maybe HP does read these forums, I have just one small request.
I don't think that in doing so HP jeopardizes any sales of its calculators because most all buyers of this type of product are not going to settle for running it on a PC, but people will point out the major flaws like this one in the firmware. |
