Hello, Trent; back to some years ago, I remembered Nenad Vulic gave us a brilliant solution for this matter. Follow this thread and you'll see a very good approach from him. Best regards. Luiz (Brazil) ▼

Luiz, Vulic's program works! Thank you so much. tm ▼

If you can afford the program storage and the convenience of sign preservation is helpful, you could add a few steps to Vulic's program: LBL AUnfortunately this solution won't work on my simulator because I'm using the IEEE FPU. The design of my BCD FP simulator is well advanced so this limitation will go away in the future. Cameron

Thanks for the link, Luiz. I'd missed that thread the first time 'round. Cameron

INT: f RR f RL FRAC: ENTER f RR f RL  (If you want INT to work with negative arguments, change it to this: ENTER g ABS / g LSTx g ABS f RR f RL * )

Gerson, Your keystrokes don't seen to work on by machine. tm ▼

Thanks for the feedback. I've tested it on Emmet Gray's WRPN (HP16C Simulator). Maybe that's not an exact simulator. In fact, on another simulator http://www.flounder.com/hp16c.htm rotation instructions don't seem to work in float mode, what I suppose is the behavior of the real 16C. Sorry. Gerson.

Hi Gerson, guys; Except for the four arithmetic basic ones (+, , × and ÷), the only arithmetic functions that work in floating point mode (actual HP16C) are square root and reciprocal (1/x). Also, number entry, stack manipulation and programming work as well. All of the integernumber related functions (bit manipulation, boolean operators, doubleprecision, etc.) are disabled in floatingpoint mode. If I am not worng, the only function disabled in integer mode operation is the reciprocal. Cheers.
