Here is some more HMS,Alpha oddities. What do you think?
Hopefully I am presenting this in a clear way.
34s 3.0 2551
Bad time or dAtE
41C - 2051A
I think the 34s is rounding to 4 places and throwing the error. Where as the 41c
is taking just the absolute value. I prefer the 41c approach. Also the 34s does
not follow the fix setting when appending to alpha like the 41c. Again I prefer
the 41c approach. Just some observations I had.
Now this is more errors in HMS math functions. I know nsim uses 41c roms.
I'm not sure if coconut uses roms but I'm fairly sure it does. free42 is a
Which calculator do you think is giving the right answer, out of the 3 here?
I will go with the way free42 handles these numbers.
wp34s 3.0 2551
nsim-0.61 - unknown rom version
free42 - 1.4.70 - linux
coconut on the palm 1.0
free42 - 1.4.70 - palm
These numbers cause the strange behavior. The numbers in between work just fine
and get the same answer as free42.
22.02, 22.05, 22.08, 22.11, 22.14, 22.17, 22,20, 22.23 etc.
Could this be considered a 41c bug? What do you get on other hp's?
I searched for 41 bugs and found this:
Here is some more strange behavior
Now that is a conversion bug. I'm just doing straight HMS-. The other reason I
post this link is message #6 I see the same pattern as above. A thought just
came to me. Maybe the software is converting to HR performing the math and then
converting back to HMS?
I tried 3 online HMS calculators and they all gave me the same answer as free42.
I am interested in what others may think of this.
