|Re: more HMS, aTIME, 34s display, 41c bugs?|
Message #1 Posted by Christopher Johnson on 5 Mar 2012, 11:20 a.m.
Yes, the 34S is rounding to four places before doing anything with the time. Yes, this is different to the 41c + time module. Likewise, alphaTIME on the 34S doesn't care about display mode. Now, the 34S could be made more like the 41c if this is desirable. Is it?
I would very much like to have this feature/option
I'm unsure about using the display mode -- what happens in FIX 3
FIX 3 is just like FIX 4 and FIX 1 is just like FIX 2. The 41C doesn't seem to care what numbers are ATIME to alpha.
Apparently all it checks for is > 99.9999
ADATE also follows the FIX setting. I would like to see the 34s behave like the 41c. This feature could also be used for prompting. eg
This could be used to prompt for data 1 of 25, 2 of 25, 3 of 25 etc. Just one example. I say relax the checking and let the user handle it. Also it isn't desirable to have your program bombing on something like this. Just my opinion.
Having a great time with this 34S. Awesome job you guys are doing.
