|Aviation Pac and programming the 41CX|
Message #1 Posted by John Breda on 20 Aug 2002, 6:24 a.m.
I posted a message yesterday but now was able to recall more about what I did 15 years ago. I used the aviation pac which works well. Additionally, I obtained some programs that were in the users library, one such program was number 1527C, HP 41C Flight Computer. It was designed to be used with the aviation pac defining user keys to start applications in the aviation pac and add additional calculations. The template I made was one shown in this program.
I tried to reload this program last night. I tried first via magnetic cards, and received card errors, and then tried from the bar code. Although the bar code seemed read in correctly, I was not able to run the progam afterward. First, I should check that the calculator is working properly. I seem to remember that there is a self-test sequence for the 41CX but do not recall what it is. Secondly, could anyone give me a quick outline as to how to enter a program via optical wand so I might check what I am doing.
The program requires 318 registers, so I am setting the size to 001. The I am simply entering via the wand, pressing GOTO.. after each program section. The catalog seems to reference all that it should, but when I define the necessary user keys, they can not find the program when activated.
Your assistance is appreciated.
