HP49G problems  Mike  02242000 Would anyone out there be able to answer (or refer me to a location the can provide me an answer) to this problem? I have the HP49G calculator. I'm unable to get it to do the following properly.. 1) convert integer type values to real type values (i.e. convert 5 to say 5.00 (if FIX 2 set)). 2) Convert a real value of 5.00 to a string representation of "5.00". I can type in 5.00 (FIX 2), and convert using >STR and what is displayed is not "5.00" which IS THE CORRECT STRING REPRESENTATION OF 5.00. Instead what is displayed is "5.". Hmmm??!?!?!! I've read the manuals from covertocover and with no success. The 48 series does this properly (I know that HP has added a type for integers to the 49G). Thanks anyone tons in advance! ! ! ! ! ! !

Re: HP49G problems  DaveJ  02242000 My HP49G (version #1.142 does the conversion just fine...
Re: HP49G problems  r. d. bärtschiger.  02262000 Hi, Be sure your calculator is set to approx mode. The display should show rtilde not r= or ctilde if you are in complex mode. On beta version 1.175 I think or later hold red shift and press enter to switch between real and approx modes. Hold blue shift and press tool, the I key, to switch between real and complex. hope this helps. rdb.
Re: HP49G problems  Mike  02282000 Thanks everyone for your help. I downloaded the latest ROM update and the calculator now operates correctly! WONDERFUL! My program now behaves as expected. Something of interest: I've viewed the manuals (and Command docs AZ) and cannot find reference to the following 2 commands... I>R R>I These two commands covert an Integer to Real and Real to Integer (I at first thought they converted Real to Imaginary and visaversa) but they don't. So these two commands solve my problem of being able to covert between the new integer and real types. Thanks again Mike
