41CX vs. 41CV+time+X/memory
Message #1 Posted by Nenad Vulic (Croatia) on 26 Sept 2001, 3:07 a.m.

Though a part of this topic was discussed in another thread, but anyway, can anybody give a brief explanation and enlist functions which 41CX contains and which cannot be found in 41CV with time module and extended functions/memory module plugged in?

I just compared the CAT 2 output of a CX and a CV with Time and XFunction:

1  SUPERC - CMS FILE/LINE/WORD/BYTE/SFOR COMPARE UTILITY - V3.01  (11/22/95)    09/26/01    11.51    PAGE     1

Ill try by heart, so some mistakes may happen...

Catalog 4 - same as EMDIR but programmable, offers R/S, SST and BST

Catalog 5 - same as ALMCAT but programmable, offers R/S, SST and BST

Catalog 6 - cat for key assignments, offers R/S, SST and BST and clearing by [C] (or Shift [C]?) pressing

New X-functions:

Locating statistics registers: REG? ( for sigma) Clear blocks of register contents by X: CLRGX (I think this is new, exclusive for CX) Get key by X: GETKEYX (this one also)

New X-Memory functions:

Knowing free X-Mem space: EMROOM Knowing fre space on an ASCII file: ASROOM (maybe ASCROOM, should try...) Recalling data about a particular file: EMDIRX (returns file name in ALPHA, file size in X and makes it the current file) Changing size of an ASCII/Data file: RESZFL (ERROR if used for program files)

I do not use often the time functions, but some new are:

CLALMA, CLALMX and (not sure) CLALMS or CLRALMS - allow selective alarm clearing, all programmable RCLALM recalls some alarm data and if I am not wrong, SWPT, that I have never used.

The major addition is the ED, or Text Editor, which was given a complete describing section.

If there is anything missing, forgive-me. The last point is some new terminology used in the CX literature, avoiding some sort of confusion.

Hope it helps.

Yes!

After reading carefully Mr. Mike's post, I saw some functions I didn't mention and confirm some spelling. Thanks,Mike.

X (<,>,<=,>=,=, and not-equal)NN? - These are new, exclusive for the CX, and compare the contens of the X-register with the contents of the register specified in the Y-register. Y-register may contain any number OR any of the single letters X, Y, Z, T and L (X and Y are somewhat useless...), reffering to the stack registers. Both X-register and the specified register may contain any mix of numeric and ALPHA data cause these functions do not generate ALPHA DATA error message.
