HP71B HP-IL Question



I am without documentation for my HP71B. It has a dual HP-IL 82402A unit and have no documentation for it either.

I was wondering if any of you knew a HP71B command to verify the operation of the HP-IL plug in? I have a digital drive I could test it on if necessary.

Thanks for your help.




with the tape drive attached and powered up, and a cassette inserted

just type 'CAT :TAPE' w/o the quotes, followed by pressing ENDLINE .

If the tape drive responds somehow, the loop works;-)





That did the trick...

Many thanks!
