HP-16C Emulator
« on: Aug 17th, 2004, 7:02pm »

This is not strictly a MIDI Utility, but might appeal to Programmers and Calculator fans.  We have begun a public BETA for the HP16C Emulator

It would be nice if I didn't have to turn the calculator on.

Maybe that could be made an option ("Always On").

I added an option to keep the Calculator turned on at all times.

Very nice calculator. I use it more often now than my own trusty HP Smiley I haven't found anything wrong with the calculator's functioning. A very minor glitch: when the "OCT" key is pressed, one line of pixels from the sqrt(x) symbol gets left behind.

Eagle eye.  Good catch.  I'll see if I can do something about that.  Thanks.

The Plus, Minus, Multiply (*) and Divide (/) keys do not work on the main part of the keyboard.  This is particularly bothersome when using my laptop which does not have a numeric keypad.

I'll see what I can do. It seems that it would it be preferable to obey these keys as if they were shifted (when possible).  In other words, the "+/=" key would act as "+" whether shifted or not, because the "=" key has no meaning for the 16C.  OTOH, the "*/8" key would need to be shifted to get the "*".  
 
Perhaps the Ideal solution would be a user configurable mapping of keys, with appropriate defaults in place.  I can't promise this for the initial release, however.
 
Thanks for voicing the annoyance!

I really don't mind having to use the shift key.

A new BETA has been released.  It fixes the Bitmap issue, and adds Keyboard support for: *, +, /, -, . on the main keyboard.

Wow! Most impressive. I actually have a 16C, but it's back home in VA, along with its instruction manual....so I don't know how to clear the overflow ("G") flag!
 
Where's the "always on" option?

To get "Always On", right click on the calculator.
 
There's a condensed mini-manual installed with the calculator.  To bring it up, press F1 when the calculator is running.
 
To clear overflow you clear flag 5:
 
[SF], [CF] Set flag, Clear flag.  Sets or clears the flag number entered (0 to 5).
 
HP16C Flags:
0      User Flag (used to control programming)
1      User Flag (used to control programming)
2      User Flag (used to control programming)
3      Controls whether leading 0’s are displayed
4      Carry or borrow Flag (Appears as C in the number display)
5      Out of Range Flag (Appears as G in the number display)

Tx for the reply. I right-clicked on ON soon after posting and saw the options, but they don't work on my Win 2000 box--selecting things like View Stack or Always On do nothing.

Thanks for the report -- I'll investigate.
 
[Later...  Yes, that appears to be a bug.  Work-around: Instead of right-clicking on [ON] (or any other button), right-click on the White-Silver background of the calculator in the upper right 3rd of the window.]
