WP34S Build 874 Possible HEX entry bug?


I may have found a problem with entering numbers in hex mode. I can't seem to enter a value of 'E' as the only (or the last--least significant) digit. I have tried in Unsigned, 1's Complement and 2's Complement. I can enter all other values but 'E' returns a 0 as the only digit and is eliminated as the last digit.

I am currently working with the emulator and not the real hardware.




Nice catch. Yes this is a bug.

And fixed :-)

Well when the next build happens.

Wow! That is what one calls response time! :-). Thanks!


It's in but untested by me.


Thanks. I'll take a look when a new build becomes available. The one I just downloaded is still showing Build 874.


Where did you get your build from? We're currently not updating the release package as we have just switched the internal version number from 1.17 to 1.18. If you want to play around with the newest version, you need to resort to an SVN client.


Thanks Marcus. I have a client already installed for other development so I will try to get the latest version that way. Anything in particular I need to know?

No, just follow the instructions on our SF page under the Code tab. The flash file is under trunk/realbuild, the emulator under trunk/windows/bin.

You can likewise browse the repository on the web and download single files. The downside of this approach is that the revision number is blanked out. This must be a SVN peculiarity.


Thanks Marcus.
