the HP42S, as the HP41, allows the contents of the X-register to be directly sotred in any of the stack registers (as you probably know).
When you press [STO][.] in the HP41, you can add any of the following: [X], [Y], [Z], [T] or [L] (no need to press [ALPHA]. In the HP42S, you should press [STO][.] (wrongly posted as [shift], orange key) and locate the equivalent register is the softkeys: [ST X] for X-register, [ST Y] for Y-register and so.
If you want to use a valid register as for an index (IND) with [STO], in the HP41 you´d use [STO][shift] (golden key)and select a numbered register, or [STO][shift][.] and any stack-related key, as mentioned above. In the HP42S, the sequence should be [STO][.] and the softkey [IND] plus any valid register. If you choose either a numbered or a named register, simply idnetify it after the [IND] softkey. For a stack register identificator, you should press [STO][.][IND] and [.] again to invoke the stack-related softkeys again. I have no calculators in hands right now, so please, forgive me if I'm adding a senseless sequence.
Quote:I don´t recall having the ':' as a separated operation; could it be an ALPHA sequence, like
One of the lines is STO: ST Z and another line is simply :
02 ":"I don't know where did you take the listings from, but could you add the complete listing here for us? Is it in the HP42S manual?
Hope you succeed.
