That's a nice feature, as long as the user is allowed to change it occasionally, perhaps by means of an expanded decimal point selection box ( | . | , |Auto| ). Anyway, the choice between period and comma was not offered by the original HP-67, as far as I know.

Right. This was not required as the decimal marker occupied a whole display digit, cf. this picture. Since there also was no thousands separator the display was unambiguous in any region of the world. ;-)

So if an emulator precisely emulates a real HP67's display there is no need for switching between comma and period.


I might offer the selection Gerson suggested in a future version as part of the extended operation DSP MODE, which currently handles display settings and separator display.
