As I told you a week ago I got my MLDL2000 last week. Up to now, I have about 150 images in it. All I can tell you is that this machine is the new spirit for the whole HP-41 scene. The programming is fast, esay and save. There is no risk of loosing your system when the internal backup battery is empty as it is a *real* problem in the ramboxes of W&W or ERAMCO. (Ok, the Profiset is a alternative, but who has a profiset? ;)
The only thing that I miss is a MCODE programm that makes images of a real module that is plugged in a defined port. I have a lot real modules we do not have an image of it....
Maybe someone can programm this "short" command for us/me.
In my mind I have something like this:
1. Give the machine a port (NOT AN HEX ADDRESS!), for instrance "8"
2. XEQ [ALPHA] CLONE [ALPHA]
3. The maching asks you, where to save the image (SRAM number of the MLDL), for instance "10".
4. This should copy the page 8 of the real module directly into the SRAM of the MLDL´s SRAM, number 10.
To prefer would be a command that does not requires to locate/define the memory of the MLDL first (That´s what the "MOVE" command of the ML-ROM needs).
Someone can follow my thoughts?
