Hi, I am having trouble using the Emu41 calculator emulator for the PC.
I am running the Emu41 on my Mac G4 using Virtual PC 4.0 In a Dos window.
I am also running the ILPer HP-il file transfer program, using the PIL-Box hardware setup
on the same Mac G4 - Virtual PC 4.0 configuration.
The PIL-Box works great. I am transfering programs and data between my Mac G4 and
my HP41cx under the windows98 OS.
What I am trying to do is to create an ASCII data file called Emu41in.dat that contains one column of numbers that is stored in the Emu41 folder.
Then, have this short program in the Emu41 read the numbers into the Emu41's registers.
Ê12 GTO 02
Ê16 STO IND Y
Ê20 GTO 01
Then, have the Emu41 save the registers to an Lif format file in the Emu41 folder.
Then, read the Lif file with my HP41cx using the PIL-Box.
The trouble I am having is that I can't make the Emu41 turn the left hand display on to
see the numbers in the X,Y,Z,T registers and the CAT the program listings.
One more thing is that in Virtual PC, the F1 TO F15 function keys don't work right in
the Emu41 program. I am still having trouble typing the Emu41 commands right from the CMD line prompt. The manual is not helpful enough.
Is there any one who is working with this Emu41 program that would be able to give me
some help. Thanks in advance.
