HP-41CV Cross Compiler
Every non and then, just for fun, I do a search on the site. It always amazes me at the various applications that the military used calculators for.

Today's search was for "HP Calculator" and I noticed a document titled:

A Cross Compiler and Programming Support System for the HP41CV Calculator

What caught my attention was the following statement:

"This thesis provides a Fortran IV program to enable an operations research analyst to more efficiently write and document HP41CV calculator programs."

Wow! A Fortran cross compiler. I downloaded the PDF and it has many examples of HP-41 programs with code and at the end of the document is
the Fortran Source code.

Has anyone ever heard of this or actually used it?

I did noticed at the end, that it has a distribution list of who received this document and how many copies.

At the end of the list was one copy to Mr. Richard Nelson, Editor, PPC Journal.
So we know Richard got a copy many years ago.

Who wants to be the first to key in the Fortran Source code and try the cross-compiler out????
