La gazette des pocketicaires n°10 - HP50G / HP-LX / HP-PRIME
The issue 10 of the French magazine "la gazette des pocketiquaires" is published. 120 pages dedicated to programmable calculators and handheld computers! You can download it at:
La Gazette des pocketiquaires

I wrote 5 articles for this issue, 3 for the Casio FX602 and 603P and 2 games for the HP49G + / 50G.
- 'Galaxis 2117' written in UserRPL. Page 41-44
- 'Le Breakout' written in HP-Pascal. Page 67-69
There are also articles for the HP-LX and HP Prime

Galaxis is downloadable at HPCALC Galaxis 2017
The BreakOut is downloadable at HPCALC Le Breakout

Enjoy!

Bonjour Gilles,
Voilà une revue qui m'était jusqu'alors inconnue.
J'ai téléchargé les numéros et commencé à les feuilleter, vraiment intéressant.
Merci beaucoup pour cette belle découverte.
Cordialement,
Sylvain

I went through No10 and was reminded to old times as some of the calculators I owned were mentioned, nice finding.

J'ai regardé no10 et été rappellé aux anciennes époques car quelques calculatrices j'ai possédé sont mentionnées, bon.

Thank you for the hint about this gazette des pocketicaires, what a finding, plenty of nostalgia.

On p. 33 ff of issue #10 is an article about the game OXO running on EDSAC, on p. 34 you see a screen shot of an EDSAC simulation running OXO. Alas no link to this simulator. Find it at edsac.net.

I know about this simulator for quites some time (and found today there is a new version from 2016). Why I emphasize on it? With the CRT display and the 'humanly' speed of EDSAC it was the first time I grasped the efficacy of the sieve of Eratosthenes. Heureka!

In the list of offered EDSAC programs to download I find today just Wada's sieve from 2001, the existence of a Wheeler's version is only mentioned but not shown. I found in my miscellany some code, for those who like to watch the sieve at work:

Got this "Heureka!" too? Ah - well -- at least it ain't my fault.

PS: The programes I missed for downloading are within he installation of version 7. So there is no need to show the code, but I leave it as it is. It is what it is.
PSPS: I will stay with version 6 as the newer flickers on my Win7.

Bonjour Gilles,
J'avais croisé cette revue il y a déjà quelques temps et rapidement survolé un ou deux numéro, sans me rendre compte des trésors qui s'y trouvaient.
Merci pour ce petit coup de jeune !
Cordialement,
Jean-Christophe.

Have the authors thought of an English translation? Google Translate's butchering it, and what little French I know isn't entirely exposing the little gems in this magazine.

Few lines from La gazette des pocketicaires #1, p. 2 mention Pockémul, a "Multi-Pocket Computer emulator". Not a single word on pockemul.free.fr but it runs also few HP calculators based on the NUT-CPU (HP-10C missing). For the HP41 there are even some peripherals and modules to 'plug' interactively -- alas 'work in progress', so the printer does not print yet.
But who does need a simulated Voyager may go with it. You may use the high resolution pics offered separately with previous version.

Ciao.....Mike
