HP Personal Calculator Digest Volume 5
I am looking for this article: Foley, M. 1979. HP-67/97 programs. The Hewlett-Packard Personal Calculator Digest 5:9.
If some of you have the magazine, I would greatly appreciate a PDF of the cited article. I enclose an image of the magazine cover

There is no such article in this magazine. On page 9 of the Hewlett-Packard Personal Calculator Digest #5, there is just a list of HP-67/97 solutions books and application pacs. As the reference you're looking for appears in a newsletter from 1981 to be related to forestry (Resources Evaluation Newsletter, Volume 10, the following extract should be relevant, however I don't know where you can find the content of this forestry solution book.

It was initially confusing, however it turns out the editor is Mona Foley, and the section on those pages (actually 6-10) is a catalog-style description of the 67/97 and listings of the various programs available for it in Solution Books and Application Pacs, which is what Pedro was looking for, but I agree 'article' is a bit misleading.

RE: HP Personal Calculator Digest Volume 5
Good morning to all. I thank Robert Prosperi very much for the clarifications he made to the Forum. I want to explain the reason of my request. In the following publication about forestry https://environment.yale.edu/gregoire/do...o10_81.pdf , the bibliography textual quotation is: Froley, M. (ed.). 1979. HP-67/97 programs. The Hewlett-Packard Personal Calculator Digest 5: 9.

I thought it described some calculation program, but it was simply a catalog, which has nothing to do with a reference to the cited paper, it is also badly done in relation to the number and location of the pages. However you will wonder how I obtained the cover of the magazine, because on the web I found this excerpt http://www.decadecounter.com/readingroom...u_beep.pdf . Someone extracted an article from the magazine and added the cover, unfortunately without the table of content index that would have allowed me to know it was not what I was looking for. This corresponds to what Uli uploaded to the Forum.

I thank the people who sent me the PDF with the contents of HP-67/97 of the magazine. I congratulate Didier Lachieze for discovering that the theme that motivated the original author citation is HP67 Forestry Application Pac, which describes the programs of forest cubing and calculation of wood production. This compilation interests me a lot, maybe I will ask Dave Hicks to sell it to me from his collection. The original HP67 program, by the authors Rockwood & Riman (1981) of 188 steps (from the link in the first paragraph), will be very difficult to find after 38 years.

Thank you Valentin. Yes I have this publication, a 23 pages with citations and a brief description of forestry programs, many of them for HP-67; but not the program keystrokes, instructions and examples. In 1982 there were no internet, so no links to each program is possible.
