Do you let HP-71B read the text file of MS-DOS if you do what?
Message #1 Posted by Hiroshi Ito on 23 May 2002, 11:20 a.m.

I have HP-71B. It is hoping to want to improve the development environment of the HP-BASIC language. Working efficiency thinks me that you had better edit it on the text editor of the personal computer by far rather than I input it on the liquid crystal screen each one line. Is there a method which makes HP-71B read the text file of the personal computer as a program file? And, as for that, how to change the program file of HP-71B and a data file into the text file of the personal computer is in the opposite direction? I want to know the method which makes HP-71B read the text file of the personal computer concretely through HP-IL 3 -1/2 Disc Drive (9114B). And, I want to know how to take out the program file kept in the memory of HP-71B, and a data file as a text file of the personal computer concretely through HP-IL 3 -1/2 Disc Drive (9114B). Is the method thing that it gets over a difference in the disk format of MS-DOS and HP-71B possible? Or, is my idea unacceptable?

i believe the information you're looking for is available in the Articles section of this web site. in particular, start with Article 24, and also 42 and 54.

good luck /bs

Thank you for the answer. The first part of the article was read.

Because they are difficult contents, a question may be possibly asked to it again. Because a calculator manufactured by HP is minor existence, it has difficulty in the collection of the information in Japan.
