RE: 41- replacing the "Bird"
In my talk last year I replaced the goose with the + key using the synthetic register "d". I wrote the program in 84 for the 41cx I used in my lab. The "+" is the alpha symbol:


Place this routine in front of the loop where you want the symbol displayed. The program did a sum of 27 data points and as it did this the "+" scrolled indicating which stage of the program was being executed.

I love synthetics. Wickes' book has a synthetic which reverses the goose but not its direction, still scrolling left to right but backwards unlike Angels reference.

Nice to know that all the synthetics work in the CL for increased speed! Not that it needs increased speed, yuk yuk yuk yuk :-)


So many ways to" skin a goose", so to speak!
