Typo in wp34s PRINTED manual (not pdf)


If this typo has already been reported and fixed please disregard
this posting.

I noticed a small typo in the printed version of the manual on page 98. The entry named "ggT" has a remark "See GCM." I believe you meant for that remark to say "See GCD." not GCM!

GCM is not a function within the wp34s (not in IOP) so referring to it just gets the reader lost.

As further evidence I point out that on the previous page (Page 97) the "Translator's note: GCD translates to "ggT" in German" is printed at the bottom of the page.

The pdf file (version 3.1) of the manual does not have this typo.

you're obviously right. Thanks for reporting! Will be corrected in 2nd edition.


P.S.: BTW, this was the 9th error/typo found since the manual was printed in February.

I just received my 2 copies of your WP34S manual. Nice Job! Why are they in different sizes? I assume different print runs. Is there a list of typos or do I need to RTFM?

OK, here's the complete list of typos/errors as far as I know them:

  1. p.13, SI: ... only Myanmar*, Liberia,* and the USA are missing still.
  2. p. 65, top: ... starting with number *0* for the least significant bit.
  3. p. 98: ggT | | | See GC*D*
  4. p. 101: LINEQS | *h MATRIX* LINEQS ((that was the first error I found immediately after printing :-(
  5. p. 104, MOD: ... (see p. *67* for examples).
  6. p. 118, footnote 68: segunda*-*feira
  7. p. 155, footnote 78: ... by all countries on this planet except *three*. ((consequence of p. 13))
  8. p. 198: ->DEG | *rad->°*
  9. p. 198: ->RAD | *°->rad* ((those two were just swapped))
  10. as of 2013-11-8: p. 173: This sector of 8*4* bytes is fixed ...


Edited to add #10.
