41CL - how to activate 9xxx configurations
Last week I received my 41CL (V5 incl. time clone) and I am thrilled. I have worked through the available documentation and everything is pretty clear. The system is now updated to the latest rom_versions (21/02/2019) - it took just 20 minutes in CPONLY mode - and everything works as expected.

However, I have problems with loading predefined 9xxx configurations. In order to load i.e. 9MTH I need to have the extreme functions (YFNX) enabled at page 7. Whatever I do to load the 9MTH configuration leads to a configuration error, because the extreme functions are configured twice. Do I have to unprotect YFNX first ?

Is there someone who would let me know the easiest way of activating a predefined 9xx configuration after Memory Lost ?

From the MEMORY LOST condition:

XEQ "MMUCLR"
"YFNX"
XEQ "PLUGH"
"YFNF"
XEQ "PLUG1L"
XEQ "MMUEN"
XEQ "CFGINI"
XEQ "PLUG"
"9MTH 8"


I notice that the display flashes something (perhaps "1Z DC") when the calc is turned off with this configuration. I don't know if it's supposed to do that or not. It doesn't come from YFNX.

Thank you very much Monte - this works indeed. This way the alternate configurations are initialised from the Plugs by CFGINI so that the extreme functions can recall them later on by number (RCLCFG 4-F). Then you use the Plug function to load the alternate configuration directly using the plug definition.

It seems that the flashing message is caused by the Z4DL module.
I will now dive into the incredible set of 9MTH modules mainly written and provided by Angel Martin.

RE: 41CL - how to activate 9xxx configurations
I was going to ask whether there was any point in trying to come up with a set of alternate configurations that left pages 6 & 7 free.

But perhaps a better idea is to just switch to an emptier config, when I want to print, or save data, via my newly-arrived PIL-box?

The "9HIL" configuration has pages 6 and 7 free. But you can't just PLUG it in because YFNX is in a different page for that configuration. So it's a multi-step process. It was a trade-off...

Yes, I was just being lazy; I need to come up with my own configs. But the suggestions given in the chart for the CFGINI command are a great starting point, thanks!
