(41) Star Wars HP-41C (italian)
An extract from mc Microcomputer, MC software RPN, Star Wars HP-41C, , Anno 3 - numero 18, aprile 1983, pgs. 59-61

" Da parecchio tempo seguo la rubrica di RPN, sempre colma di naovi programmi e naqve idee, che ritengo veramente ben fatta e ben curata. Con la speranza di poterne essere all altezza ho inviato questo mio programma di simulazione che ho battezzato "Star Wars HP-41C", dal film al quale mi sono ispirato.

For a long time I have followed the RPN column, always full of new programs and ideas, which I think is really well made and well cared for. With the hope of being able to live up to it, I sent this simulation program of mine that I christened "Star Wars HP-41C", from the film I was inspired by."

BEST!

You can find every past issue (20 years) of MC microcomputer with all HP related articles, tests and listings here.
I once had all of those on paper, just a few by now.

Direct link to the magazine scan.
Link to contents of all issues.

There was also another italian magazine "micro&personal computer" that predates MC, whence many MC authors came from.
Also had all of them on paper...

Many interesting listings (I remember one for perspective projection drawings for the 41) but you have to translate their descriptions from italian.

Greetings,
Massimo

The LINK is 'amended', & should work (at least it appears to on my system). NO signup, etc required to view / download.

Here's the raw file and my transcription of the code so far. Not quite working as advertized though

I can't figure out the following steps in the program listing, can you guys with better eyesight provide some guesses:

Step 02 - is it LBL 00?
Step 11 - it is "LBL B", right?
Step 93 - missing in the original?
Step 183 - is it ST+ 03 ?
and a few other ones taken "by context"

Code:

Step 02: Yes
Step 11: Yes
Step 26: ST- 05
Step 55: ARCL 08
Step 93: a minus sign
Cannot find step 183, the end is on step 180. If you meant step 103 it is a ST+ 08
Step 107: ARCL 04
Step 108: FS?C 08
Step 115: FS?C 09
Step 130: "======"
Step 158: ARCL 04
Step 168: 9821
Step 179: RTN
Step 180: END

HTH
