But what about using SystemRPL? Using SystemRPL throwing away the OOP overhead and protection stuff improving also the execution speed. It's never too late to learn SystemRPL. ;-)

Hey, I like that one, "It's never too late to learn XXXX". Much better than "Life is too short to learn German" (who said that?) :-)
I regret never having tried to learn Saturn Assembly or SysRPL back in the day. Now that the HP-48 has been discontinued and the HP-50g is fast enough I don't feel motivated. But I have a notion of what I missed...
Sticking to User-RPL I have started to rewrite the program following Raymond's advice. Indeed the delay is due to switching to and from lists and vectors. FFT on the HP-48GX takes about 1/6 of the time it takes FOUR on the HP-71B, exactly what one should expect just considering the clock rates of both devices. I've only just begun and running time has dropped from 200 to 175 seconds for 256-digit multiplications. The final array to vector conversion alone takes 15 seconds:


%%HP: T(3)A(D)F(,);
\<< DUP2 SIZE OBJ\->
OBJ\-> 1 GET \->LIST
  \<< *
  \>> DOLIST OBJ\-> 1
OBJ\-> 1 GET \->LIST 1
- 1 SWAP
+ OVER 10000 / IP
OVER 10000 / IP +
1 \->LIST \->ARRY

I wasn't aware there was an array re-dimension command, RDM. Sometimes is pays to read the manual :-)

I began working on Emu48 in 1997 because I wrote SystemRPL programs since 1995 and tested them on my real HP48SX. After each of such a debugging session I always had to restore the memory content. With Kermit this took ~30 minutes. So I was looking for a simple way to restore data quickly. The problem was, that Emu48 0.99 and Emu48 1.0 wasn't working very well on Windows NT4, the story began...

I should thank you again for all those emulators, especially Emu48. Too used to RPN, I would make mistakes all the time when using the Windows calculator at work. I even started to write an RPN calculators in Delphi (my only attempt at the language) and almost succeeded, only the EEX key was left not implemented. But then I found Emu48 which became my only calculator on the PC :-)
