HP41 Unit conversion program?



#7

As the subject says, I'm looking for a unit conversion program like in the 48 series.
Is something like this implemented in some ROM?
Or is there code for this available somewhere?

Thanx in advance, Peter...

I improved one for my Calc41 environment on PC.
Which unit would you like to use? It's easy to write it.


#9

metric to metric would be good for me! (i can never remember the conversions)

#10

If you may use ROMs (in a RAMBOX or in an emulator) use the Thermal Transport ROM or the Petrol ROM.

Ciao.....Mike

The unit conversion routines are implemented in both the Petroleum Fluids Pac and the Thermal & Transport Science Pac. The former has, in my opinion, a much better implementation: you just enter the units to be converted separated with a dash in the alpha register and then execute the CON function. However, it is written in machine language and cannot be copied unless you have a ROM box or an Hepax module. Same thing for the Thermal Pac.

Petroleum Fluids Pacs appear every now and then in eBay. Thermal & Transport Science Pacs are much rarer.

Hmm, it's just what I suspected: Try to get a suitable ROM. Well, now I at least know WHAT to look after. German ebay's not flooded with ROMs but maybe I will have some luck.

Thanx, Peter...
