Thank you for your careful readings.
This is effectively a mistake since I mix-up all the values in my example.
I will correct all this mess directly in the previous post.

Ah! Thanks you !

Since a few days my HP-41C had a strange behavior; sometimes, it is beeping when I turn it on. I was wondering what it was and was afraid it were broken.

There is no special reason to use this flag. I often use flags on my HP-28S which have a larger range for general purpose flags. I have forgotten that the HP-41C's user flags range from 00 to 10.

Here is a new version of the previous program that use no flag for display format.
I also have change the flags used to remember what entry and unit was inputted. In this new version, the flag from 00 to 04 are used so that corresponding annunciators 0 to 4 are light on or off depending of entry. Eventual erroneous situation (some successive value entries with no conversion may result in situation where more than one indicator is ON) are easily detected.
Also, the results of any conversion is no more store in a register allowing the user to store any results in any register of his choice.

Finally, I reorganized subpart of the code so that after any entry or conversion, the R/S key can be used to scroll from one unit to the next. This also spare a few bytes.
