Hi André,

I like the way this is coming along. Smile

Feature Request:
In EduCALC Tech Note #4 it states that the 71 often allocates 32k for the HP-IL module. (What!)

First of all, this is false. What is observed is that there is a decrease of 32k in available address space when the HP-IL module is installed. Also, there are valid memory configurations that produce a configuration warning when device is FREEPORT'ed.

This is because the 71 configures RAM and ROM/IRAM in two separate configuration tables. So while MEMDIS may report 32k of address space available, it might be split between ROM and RAM.

As a challenge, I'd like to see MEMDIS report separately the available memory in the two address spaces.

Regards Dave
