Thanks a lot, I just download Warren Furlow's V41 software from Christoph Gießelink site and install it on my laptop.

I now have a way to make standard and useful *.raw files. I also discover an easy way for synthetic programming since the *.lod files of this software allow easy hexadecimal editing of any code for the Virtual 41 !


Playing with this new tool, I enhance a bit my last version of the converter correcting three main quirks :
  1. Too many times, when the user enter a value and don't ask for a conversion, multiple flags are set that situation may drive to erroneous results. Now a sub-routine to clear all the flags is call after each new value entry.
  2. When dB are close to zero, same bad rounding appears and disturbs the display which may cause misreading. Now a rounding instruction is inserted when displaying unit free values for dB. The rounding limit is set by a FIX 7 instruction just before a RND instruction. This allows to have a correct result displayed when converting 1 µV (displayed as " 1.000E-6 VOLT ") into " 0.00 dB-µV " ( wrong versions was showing " 4.00E-8 dB-µV " ).
  3. A new short label F allows to directly enter impedance Z (in Ohm). It can be used to change impedance value (when the user have key-in any digit) or to display back the current value store in R00. This also clear the indicators flags. This again avoid same further erroneous conversions.
    When IMPEDANCE? is prompted, the user have to key-in the value (in Ohm) and press R/S to continue.
    Whenever no impedance is given at application start, the code will prompt the user when needed. Simply press R/S on prompts to continue the conversion.


Like the previous version after each conversion, R/S can be use to directly convert to the next unit. By repeating the process over all the units available, all registers from R01 up to R05 will be set with the correlated values.

Beware that at the start of the code, a CLRG instruction clear all registers ! Please fill free to remove this instruction or to add any more convenient instructions to clear only expected registers.

The following traces illustrate a typical use of this conversion code. These traces are printed in NORM mode, so that user's key-in is right tabulated and displayed results are left justified.
