WP 34s lockup with [y-hat]


I have managed to create a hard lockup in both the emulator and calculator.

Steps to reproduce:

- Reset the calculator (back switch on calculator [thanks for pointing that out!], or "h X.FCN RESET" on either)
- "f [y-hat]"

I suspect that it happens when no [SIGMA]+ operations have been previously performed.

Emulator crashes. Calculator never advances beyond the "f" display -- requires reset switch to regain control.

Versions: emulator SVN 1209, calculator SVN 1196.


Hmmmm, there is a bug there but I'm not sure what or where yet.

I've reproduced this a couple of times now but haven't done it reliably :-( The code looks like it should be generating an error here.

I debugged it in the emulator and have given Pauli a hint what might be wrong. ((I'm afraid it's his part to fix it.))

Edit: I may have fixed it but tests need to be done. It was a general problem with functions not returning a proper result in some cases.

Be aware that the flash image may be grossly unstable because I've added the serial stuff which is totally untested at this point.

This is fixed now. A bad return from the x-hat and y-hat functions could cause a lock up (but not always).

Well, fix in the next build I should have said.
