RE: Little explorations with HP calculators (no Prime)
For the ones going to paste their text with rpl and digraph in emu48 the following link may be interesting, because otherwise one has errors and may be puzzled.

In short the digraph have to be converted to go in the emulator.
There is also a program reported in this page http://hp.giesselink.com/emu48.htm and Tim W. suggested also that would be possible to connect the conn4x (that includes the ability to convert text to hp obects) to emu48 using a virtual COM port. For example this: http://com0com.sourceforge.net/ . Another possibility is using DDE, but with that I am not sure the text is converted to an object.

PS: although I know that emulators are a great work, I normally try to use the real 50g. Only when I have to transfer back and forth a lot of data then I have to admit that emulators / desktop app are more handy.

Update: the ascii to bin conversion program did not work. Likely due to my encoding settings in notepad++ or notepad2-mod. I used the com0com null modem, set the emulator using the COM7 and the conn4x works, seeing the calculator on COM7. In this way it is relatively easier to pass text to the emulator. It is a bit less faster than before, but still faster than a real 50g, if the data to pass is a lot.

Wikis are great, Contribute :)
