|Asking for help about infinite-loop program to benchmark an HP48G+|
Message #1 Posted by Andrés C. Rodríguez (Argentina) on 5 Apr 2001, 10:50 a.m.
I just bought a HP 48G+ just for collecting purposes. It looks almost new, but I am puzzled about the speed of this unit, most functions take more time than I expected (based on my HP41 and 42 experience). Perhaps it is right this way, I don’t know.
I would like to run a simple benchmark to see if this particular unit is OK or not. On a HP 41, I’d write a simple program (infinite loop) just as:
and see how many iterations took place during, say, one minute.
(In fact, on a HP 41 I would use automatic duplication of the T stack register, or use a ISG loop, but I am trying to keep this example very simple and clear)
I’ve found (as expected) that none of my programming experience in HP25, HP41, HP42 or HP32Sii is of any help. While I am prepared to work through the manuals to learn the HP 48 programming model, I would appreciate any shortcut right now! :-)
Could someone please let me know how to create and run a infinite loop program on a HP 48?
If someone knows, what speed (iterations per minute) should I expect?
Thank you in advance
