I assume you are referring to this?
> HP 5061-5256 X Functions (hp41)
> Hp 82180-90002 HP82180A Extended Functions/Memory Module Quick Reference Card (Singapore Mar 82)
The first refers to a module, the second to a quick reference card.
In general the list I posted had the following removed
1) serial numbers
3) notes on condition
4) non-HP stuff
I may have accidentally left some serial numbers on the list, but in general what I have on my list is what appears on the item.
5061-5256 is NOT the date code, but whether it is a part number, or some combination of part number and version info, or what, I don't know. incidentally the X Functions module I have in my hot little hands right now has a date code of 2339.
If the number 5061-5256 has changed, then it may well indicate a change in the ROM. I believe there were a number of changes to the X-Functions ROM.
Note that at least some of these changes resulted in a change to the header displayed in cat 2.
The versions I have information on are
-EXT FCN 1B (2 versions!)
-EXT FCN 1C
-EXT FCN 2D
See Extend your HP41, p630
Incidentally the one quoted above identifies itself as 1C, and another I have identified itself as 1B (but id not inside its original module holder, so I can't help you with any further info.
Oh, my CX id a 2D (but that's internal)
I think that may be all the information I have at the moment.
Well, maybe not. The original info was:
> One is HP 82180A and the other is marked HP 5061-5256.
I would check what cat 2 says. My bet would be it's a 1B, but I'm prepared to be surprised :-)
