I cant remember how I did it on the 50g  Printable Version + HP Forums (https://archived.hpcalc.org/museumforum) + Forum: HP Museum Forums (https://archived.hpcalc.org/museumforum/forum1.html) + Forum: Old HP Forum Archives (https://archived.hpcalc.org/museumforum/forum2.html) + Thread: I cant remember how I did it on the 50g (/thread128082.html) 
I cant remember how I did it on the 50g  Ken Ratkevich  11072007 Hi, I know. The manuals refer to integer manipulation only of nonbase 10 numbers. BUT, I remember I found a quick way to convert #.011b to #.375d (or viceversa). I remember because I thought to myself at the time that "I'll have to remember this". But it's final time (home study) and I forgot. Any Ideas? As always  THANKS,
Ken
Re: I cant remember how I did it on the 50g  Chuck Sommer  11072007 Put the calculator in BASE mode (Orange_shift BASE (over the 3)). Then the Fx keys can switch between the 4 different display formats Hex(F1), Dec(F2), Oct(F3) and Bin(F4). This will change the display of all numbers that are displayed with #xxxxxb.
Re: I cant remember how I did it on the 50g  Hal Bitton in Boise  11072007 Hi again Ken, Re: I cant remember how I did it on the 50g  Dave Britten  11072007 There's nothing built in, but I've got a small program that can do these conversions. It's rather unsophisticated, and does no error checking, so garbage in, garbage out, as they say. It'll handle negative numbers; simply include a minus sign as the first character in your string. Either key the program in manually, or transfer with Kermit in ASCII mode.
%%HP: T(3)A(R)F(.);
Checksum (from a 48GX): #EA1Eh
Re: I cant remember how I did it on the 50g  Ken Ratkevich  11082007 Hi, The problem with this is the 50g chokes on decimal points for nondecimal numbers.
Thanks
Re: I cant remember how I did it on the 50g  Ken Ratkevich  11082007 Hey, how are you? Yeah. This is what I am trying to avoid. It's a supervised exam with a time limit and I really don't wan't to waste time on fractional nondecimal number conversions. Especially when I WILL NEVER need to do this on the job (or elsewhere).
Thanks
Re: I cant remember how I did it on the 50g  Ken Ratkevich  11082007 Wow! Not having 50g programming experience it looks sophisticated to me. I'll look in the manual to find out how to feed it to my calc.
THANKS FOR THE EFFORT!!!
Re: I cant remember how I did it on the 50g  Ken Ratkevich  11082007 OK. I found the cable. I've got conn4X installed and the USB drivers loaded. I can do print screens to the PC. I've got your program in a text file.
What next please?
