|hp 50g string to list conversion|
Message #1 Posted by Rich Messeder (US) on 11 Nov 2006, 10:40 a.m.
I have decided to try to use the SD card to interface with my Windows computer. I am currently using Conn4x to connect with the hp 49g+ and 50g, but wanted to avoid relying on using the cable.
I have menu lists that I can send via Conn4x and they work fine. I create them in an editor and format them so that they are easy for me to read (Unix-style LF, not LF-CR):
I was able to create a simple menu this way, copy it to SD card, and copy the file to the hp 50g.
I tried to use the STR-> command on the file directly, but to no avail.
I then edited the resultant string, removed the %% header and all line feeds. This worked for a simple list.
BUT I cannot get my longer lists to run. I suspect it may be because I am using stuff like
I get a syntax error. I looked in the HP 50g manual, and didn't find much on the STR-> command. I also searched the web, and came up empty.
What is my solution?
