I would strongly recommend the one or other rewrite. After all the 41 is a completely different machine which requires a different approach here and there. Some HP67/97 code cannot even be translated directly (think of fast reverse branching or numbers consisting of multiple program lines). The card reader manual has various examples and suggestions for this.

And it would require SIZE 026 altough only four registers are used. Remove the initial CLRG (which clears all available registers) at LBL A and clear only R 01, then nd use ISG 00 ENTER (dummy instruction) instead of ISZ(i). This way no INT is required. Even a simple 1 ST+00 would do here. Other changes are required anyway, e.g. F? 3 becomes FS?C 22.

I think the idea is to duplicate the look and feel of this vintage software. If the same results requires slight changes, that's the way to go.

A VIEW X followed by 3x PSE might do – but of course without the blinking point.
