RE: utf-8 for RPL source code
I recently learned of the existence of this project, and I'm very impressed by the huge work that it involves, especially for a single person. I would be very pleased if one day you succeed.

For me, the HP50g is a nearly perfect calculator. Its flexibility and modularity can't be beaten. The sole drawback is that it could be faster, so the newRPL would be a perfect upgrade.
I'm not interested in the HP Prime, for several reasons.

Unfortunately, I don't have the knowledge to help you. I have seen the HPGCC3 solution, thought it would be fantastic , but just reading how to install it told me it was not for me. I don't plan to make severe modifications on my computer, learn Linux, use esoteric and complex tools, just to learn C language and make short programs for my calculator.
I've tried SysRPL, but it requires a lot of effort due to the huge number of instructions, and making any modification requires again a lot of care, contrary to User RPL.
So I see newRPL as an excellent solution, as long as it is not necessary to be a computer engineer to use it.

In my HP50g, I've installed a pack of fonts named "MathFont", which replaces many uncommon characters in the original font by math symbols and the entire Greek alphabet, both upper case and lower case. They are more important for me than the accented letters, despite the fact I am French. I use my calculator to do math, not literature. Smile
I've also slightly modified these fonts, both the standard font and the minifont, to make them more appealing to my taste. Will this feature be present in newRPL ? I would prefer that than having 27000 fixed characters…

Maybe my post is totally off-topic, but I don't understand what you wrote above. Smile
I just want to tell you good luck!
