Owner Manual Introduction

The HP-71 Finance Pac programs have been designed to easily perform the functions of a powerful financial calculator while offering the computer advantages of continuous memory, file creation and storage, and the potential use of peripherals. One program, the time value of money program (TVM), solves a wide range of problems for any person who works with financial contracts of any type: borrowers, lenders, lessors, lessees, accountants, real estate brokers, automobile dealers, and investors, to name a few.

Here are some of the things you can do with the program:
  • Solve for the number of periods, the interest rate, the present value, the payment amount, or the future value of a uniform series of payments.
  • Calculate an amortization schedule of a loan.
  • Enter an uneven series of cash flows from the keyboard or from data files in memory. The cash flows may be grouped or ungrouped.
  • Review or edit an uneven cash flow series.
  • Calculate the internal rate of return (IRR) or the net present value (NPV) of an uneven cash flow series.
  • Store an uneven cash flow series as a data file in memory.
The other Finance Pac program, the depreciation program (DEP), enables you to calculate, display, print, and store depreciation schedules in memory. You can choose from five different methods to calculate depreciation.

HP-82483A Surveying Pac

[Image: HP-82483A_MOD.jpg]

Owner Manual Introduction

The Surveying Pac is a tool to aid the engineer and surveyor in solving many of the common surveying problems. Because it is one large integrated program, and not merely a collection of individual routines, the Surveying Pac exhibits power beyond what you may expect.

It simply and easily handles all the calculations involved in:
  • Traversing.
  • Inversing.
  • Curve layout.
  • Radial staking.
Its unique data entry system allows inputs to be made in a variety of ways: by using bearings, north and south azimuths, angles left ot right, and horizontal deflections left or right. You can choose your input modes regardless of the mode of output you desire. If entries are unknown, the program will ask other questions until enough is known about the situation for an answer to be computed.

HP-82490A HP-41 Translator Pac

[Image: HP-82490A_MOD.jpg]

Owner Manual Introduction

The HP 82490A HP-41 Translator Pac consists of:
  • The HP-41 Translator Pac module, which contains a system of programs for the HP-71 designed to allow you to convert programs written for the HP-41 for use on the HP-71. You can then run the "translated" programs on your HP-71, taking advantage of the HP-71's enhanced speed and accuracy.
  • A keyboard overlay, designed to customize your HP-71 keyboard for use with the HP-41 Translator Pac.
With the HP-41 module installed in your HP-71, you can:
  • Use the HP-71 as an HP-41 calculator for keyboard operations and program execution. All HP-41 calculator features, including the alpha register, are available from the HP-71 keyboard.
  • Write programs on the HP-71 in HP-41 user-programming language.
  • Transfer programs automatically from the HP-41 to the HP-71 via HP-IL. (This requires HP-IL modules for both calculators.)
  • Extend the HP-41 user language, either by adding HP-41 extension module functions not included in the HP-41 Translator Pac, or by adding new functions of your own design.
In short, the HP-41 Translator Pac allows you to retain the calculator and programming features of the HP-41, and to use your HP-41 programs, as you move into the more sophisticated and powerful world of the HP-71.

The HP-41 function set included in the HP-41 Translator Pac includes:
  • All functions built into the HP-41C and HP-41CV calculators.
  • Additional numeric, flag, and alpha data manipulation functions from the HP-41CX and the HP 82180A Extended Functions/Memory Module.
  • All of the HP-IL printer functions from the HP 82160A HP-IL Module for the HP-41 except the special graphics functions.
Not included in the HP-41 Translator Pac are the time (TIME is included), date, stopwatch, alarm, and extended memory functions from the HP-41CX, or any other functions from HP-41 extension modules. Any HP-41 program that uses functions included in the pac can be translated and run on the HP-71.

HP-41 programs and keyboard operations that are executed on the HP-71 yield the same results as those obtained with the HP-41, except that:
  • The HP-71 provides two additional mantissa digits and and one more exponent digit than the HP-41. This affects both the accuracy of numeric results and the allowed range of numbers.
  • Unlike the HP-41, The HP-41 Translator Pac does not provide the ability to choose the digit separator and radix format.
  • There are some differences in keyboard entry methods that arise from the different keyboards of the two computers and from the somewhat different styles of RPN arithmetic associated with HP-71 FORTH and the HP-41.
Appendix E contains a list of the HP-41 functions provided by the HP-41 Translator Pac, and description of the differences between the HP-41 and the HP-41 Translator Pac. The HP-41 Translator Pac is based on a FORTH language system built into the pac. FORTH is a computer language that shares many characteristics with the HP-41 user programming language, but is more widely recognized and applied to a greater variety of computers. You do not need to learn FORTH to use the HP-41 translator, but programmers familiar with FORTH can use the system to write HP-71 applications entirely in FORTH.

HP-71 Solutions Books provide complete step-by-step keystroke listings to help equip you with answers to your general or specialized programs. Solutions Books are available on magnetic cards and mini data cassettes.

Solutions Book Content

Games Users' Library Solutions Book cover the following subjects:
  • Code Crack
    The object of this games is to guess the random sequence of colors the HP-71 has selected. Initially, the player must specify the number of elements in the sequence (4 to 9), the number of colors used to generate the sequence (4 to 9), and whether a color may appear more than once in the sequence. Once the sequence is generated, the player must enter a guess. The program accepts the guess one character at a time with no correction of errors. Once the last color is entered, the program compares the input with the stored sequence and tells you how close you were.
  • Craps
    In this game of craps, the HP-71 is the 'house', using simplified casino rules. The game begins with the player specifying his bank limit, a value that will be rounded to the nearest dollar amount. Next the player must place his bet, which may be as much or all of his bank as he wishes (to end game enter 0). On the players first roll after a bet, the dice are automatically rolled, and the value of each, along with their total, is displayed by the HP-71. If the total of the dice equals 7 or 11 on the fist roll, the player wins and his bet is added to his bank. If the total of the dice equals 2,3 or 12 on the first roll, the amount of his bet is subtracted from his bank. Any other total on the first roll becomes the players "point". The player then continues to roll until the total of the dice equals his "point" (the player wins) or the total equals 7 or 11 (the player loses).
  • Hangman
    Hangman is a word guessing game. This game is a version of the popular word game "hangman". The first player selects a word or phrase that is as many as 19 characters in length and keys it into the computer. The second player guesses various characters until he completes the word or gets hanged.
  • Blackjack
    In this card game, the HP-71 is the dealer and up to eight people may play. Each player begins with $200 and may bet as much or all of it as he wishes up to $200.
  • Hammurabi
    This game allows a player to control a country's economy through the buying and selling of land. The more efficiently he uses the land, the better a governor he is.
  • Space War
    "Space War" sets up a two-dimensional playing area where you do battle with from 16 to 30 enemy ships. Your ship is equipped with long- and short-range sensors, shields, and 20 torpedoes. You also have 5 star bases at which you may effect repairs to your ship. The object of the game is to destroy all of the enemy ships before they destroy you.

HP-00071-90066 General Utilities Users' Library Solutions


HP-71 Solutions Books provide complete step-by-step keystroke listings to help equip you with answers to your general or specialized programs. Solutions Books are available on magnetic cards and mini data cassettes.

Solutions Book Content

General Utilities Users' Library Solutions Book cover the following subjects:
  • General System Utilities
    The subprograms provided in this section are intended to function as enhancements to the HP-71 BASIC language. The majority of the twenty-three routines are complementary to HP-71 keywords.
  • Time and Date Utilities
    The purpose of these thirteen routines is to allow the user to perform numeric calculations based on time and date.
  • Conversion Utilities
    The purpose of these seven subprograms is to provide a base of generic conversions that can be used both from the keyboard and from within a program.
  • HP-IL Utilities
    The purpose of these three routines is to provide a mechanism by which the volume label of a mini data cassette may be accessed and by which information about the device type and location of the PRINTER IS device may be obtained.
  • Variable Cross Reference
    The purpose of this program is to provide a listing of all variables contained in a program, and their respective line numbers. Such a listing is very useful in the debugging stages of program development.
  • System Catalog
    The purpose of this subprogram is to provide a catalog of all LEX files and their entries. Since the HP-71 system ROM's are treated as LEX files, they are included in the catalog.

HP-00071-90097 Software Developers' Handbook


This document is a 'cookbook' for applications programmers working with the HP-71. Two goals are envisioned: first to serve as a timesaver, and second to suggest a measure of consistency among programs written for the HP-7I. While there is no hope of addressing all possible applications on the HP-71, common subjects such as user interface, environment preservation, and error trapping are discussed. The specifics of each application are left to the programmer.

WorkBook71 by Richard Harvey


WorkBook71 is a data-gathering, analysis-and report-generating tool for the Hewlett-Packard HP-71 Portable Computer. Modules of the system include Editor, data format converter, searching, and Report Formatter. Each module can operate separately of others in the group and, by virtue of data format conversion, other programs you may have can be used interactively. The goal has been to provide a versatile package in which data can flow between applications with minimal hassle.

This manual is in several sections. "Getting Started" should be read before investigating the programs in this package. "Using the HP-71" is as much about a philosophy of using the computer in general as it is about using it with this package. There is a section on each of the programs with a discussion of their purpose, usage, and a list of commands. Part 5 explains the structure of WorkBook files and discusses methods for using the data in your Basic programs. Part 5 need only be read if you plan on writing your own programs. The inevitable Addendum is in the last section, listing some cautions and hints. A glossary is at the back of this manual.
