I would just like to have something like an HP 41 or 42 running in my Pocket PC. While many HP **FINANCIAL** calculators are available for the Pocket PC, I have found nothing yet in the direction I am looking for (again, 41-42). Of course, I know that many levels of emulations are not advisable, but I was just wondering about how to achieve my goal, and the very nice emulators from Hrast may (just may) be a manner, albeit with an extra layer of overhead. Needless to say, I would NOT like to have an HP48 emulator in my Pocket PC, were it the case, emu48 is available...
Of course, I would prefer if Hrast or someone else takes the effort to develop a native HP 41/42 emulator (or even port the calculator application from the HP LX 100/200) to the Pocket PC. There are nice HP SCIENTIFIC apps for Palm (see MathUPro just as an example), but I have found nothing comparable yet for the Pocket PC
An alternative I would explore is a JVM (Java Virtual Machine) for Pocket PC and a modified version of the HP25 available here at the MoHPC, but it will have 2 layers too...
