hp41 flying goose, program execution indicator
Greetings,

Is there a way to 'reactivate' the flying goose after displaying the ALPHA register.

I have output that persists on the screen for quite a while and it misleads you into thinking the program has locked up. Is there any way to flick the execution indicator back on?

Regards
Todd

IIRC, eleven labels in a row has that effect, because the goose moves forward 11 spaces so quickly that it appears to have flown backwards one space.

A backwards FACING goose is more difficult, but doable.

That thread mentions "goose droppings". Some can be seen here: http://hhuc.us/2009/index.htm

Check out other pages in that HHC 2009 website for some other fun HP-41 "screen captures", some of which are animated. Only the real HP-41 addicts will recognize all of them.

And a backwards facing goose flying backwards is the second derivative, so to speak ;-)

There are two functions in the "Sudoku & Sound" module that allow for these without any synthetics wizardry: "LEFT" and "GOOSE" - simply intersperse them in the FOCAL code and voila, your goose obeys your commands...

I got those from the NFC EPROM, written by Nelson C. Crowle - remember the AECROM?

See page 9 in the attached doc.
