MLDL2000 and HP41X: HEPAX issue solved.
Message #1 Posted by Vieira, L. C. (Brazil) on 2 Dec 2005, 1:45 p.m.

Hi, all;

After having the MLDL2059 working ‘tunned’, I decided to go ahead and compare it to the HP41X, one of the many Hrast’s masterpieces (Thanks, Hrast! HP41X rocks!!!).

Because of the weird entries shown with HEPDIR when I tried configuring SRAM in my MLDL2000, I used HEXEDIT in HP41X to compare memory contents and I actually found a different value at #XFE9h (X=8, 9, etc). In all HEPAX addressed memory blocks with HP41X, this address is filled with 091h, so I did the same in MLDL SRAM blocks addressed by HEPAX and voilá! For the first time I saw

H:DIR EMPTY
instead of the many entries (C2 C3 etc). I'd guess 091 is sort of an 'end of field' marker.

Thought I should share with you all.

Best regards.

Luiz

Hi Luiz,

Here goes both my congrats and my apologise.

It was my fault, I've been revising my posts in the previous thread, and noted I unadvertedly ommited the contents of H'xFE9, which as you've discovered by your own is H'091 in every page.

Best wishes and a very nice weekend. ;-)

Diego.

Hey, Diego;

after all of your contributions to make HEPAX to work with MLDL2000, at least this little one of mine inspires me to go deepper. And I had no other source to compare with but the wonderfull Hrast's HP41X running in an HP49G.

Best regards and thanks again.

Luiz, from Brazil, waiting for my X-Mas delivery (((8^D

Thanks Luiz. I am very happy to know that you found HP-41X helpful :-)

Hello, Hrast;

This is ONLY ONE of the many, many circumstances I found HP41X to be more than a powerfull emulator. I got in contact with some of the most important HP41 external ROM (modules) features through HP41X. I had not yet got into MCODE before because (my thoughts, O.K.?) I wanted a chance to do MCODE in the actual HP41. So, the HP41X as an emulator would be a development plataform and necessary support. Now with Meindert´s MLDL2000 all I need is already here.

When I think that a 26YO+ handheld, pocket size calculator is the center of this 'working gear', I come to realize I have no idea of what was going on inside Hewlett-Packard's R&D clusters...

BTW, Hrast, would you, please, drop me a mail? I have not found yours in my e-box (after so many cleanups because of virus attacks, I guess I wipped out too many information) and I'd like to contact you.
