  1. C++ wrappers for decNumber
  2. A runtime engine (opcode layout and such)
  3. A display driver with font handling
  4. A keystroke assembler/compiler for internal code
  5. Memory management for various object types
  6. Object editors (matrices and alike)
  7. ...

The year I worked on the WP 34S project I was basically laid off and thus had some more time left then nowadays.

Remember that Marcus worked on the project after Walter and I had been at it for several years. Several decisions about the above list were already made and set in stone already. Often for ill.

Additionally, the above list doesn't include actually implementing any numeric functionality -- just the display, keyboard and programmability. There is a *lot* more than Marcus mentioned before you've got a usable calculator. Yes, the 34S has done a big chunk of this work, but I'm sure there will be another pile.

Not an ideal solution but perhaps reusing and adapting the code of the WP 34S would allow the 43S to get off the ground without a very long delay.

By the way, what are the latest proposed hardware specs of the 43S? CPU, amount of firmware memory, RAM etc.?
