Largest number on hp48g



#3

Quick question: the largest number which can be represent on hp 48 is 2^63-2 by specifying 63 for binary word size (63 STWS)?

Anyone figure out how to force the calculator to produce results in 63 binary wordsize so that it won't use exponenential number until this is reached?

What's the question here?

A 63 bit integer will hold 16 digits, where the MSNib lacks the MSBit.

A decimal value will always be shown with a maximum mantissa of 12 digits,

so if the value exeeds 999999999999, a display with exponent will be used...

Ever tried to convert a HXS string to a char string directly?

This will retain the digits...
