RE: May 5 Update?
Hello,

Mostly a small bug in exam mode which we had to get out rely fast before exams in Europe.
Some other small bug fixes.

More importantly 2 critical "load" bugs that were causing crashes and reboot when loading old type programs (through the CK or from a backup).

Some other changes:
Code:
 FIXED BUG: fix exam mode bug FIXED BUG: TERMINAL(3):=value did not work well... FIXED BUG: proot wizard did not work when cas was disabled FIXED BUG: proot wizard display errors with complex polynomials FIXED BUG: number of crash at load time for backups and programs FIXED BUG: Python: matplotl show was not working TECHNICAL: new language strings

Although I work for the HP calculator group, the views and opinions I post here are my own. I do not speak for HP.

I could not make show() work.
Code:
 from matplotl import * plot([1,2,3],[4,5,7]) show()
should display two segments.

Hello,

Unfortunately I have discovered another BUG in the APP Explorer.
On the physical calculator G2 (FW: 20210505 v14588) the display of the values is no longer displayed correctly during the transformation.

Would certainly be nice for the students if this would still work correctly!

Best thanks for the excellent work in 2021!

Application: Explorer App

Since the latest firmware 2021-05-05 v14588 on calculator Prime G2 the values are not displayed at the correct place when transforming.

Kind regards,
Tschumi

Thanks for the update, @cyrille!

@parisse, show() worked for me using May 5th firmware (HP Prime G2). I tested it using the hist(), since I was interested in histograms, and using the code you posted.

Below are the steps I took to update my prime:

A few things I've noticed:
• clf() does not work, and it keeps the previous plot in the figure.
• only way i've found (so far) to clear the previous figure is to reset the calculator
• plot overlays on python command line, the work around is to use the hpprime library and do the clear screen trick someone posted in previous thread
• python scripts run one after another, not sure how to disable that
• not sure what the syntax is for hist() to include the number of bins
• did notice my calculator rebooting sometimes when i was saving a new python file through the connectivity tool

Now my older Primes (pre-G2) constantly reboot when I connect to the CK and click on Applications in the left pane.

On my g1 it rebooted during sync until i reset the adv Graph/Function and Graph 3d after reseting those apps it syncs. So maybe the problem is one of those apps

I tried that, but it didn't work until I had reset all the apps and deleted all my saved apps.

I did not get prompted to updated to 5/5/2021 firmware. I can't find it anywhere.

It does not work on a G1, I did not check on a G2.
clf does indeed not work, because internally it calls the giac erase() command, and erase() is not available on the Prime CAS.

Hi Eddie, it's on the ftp site:

Web browsers no longer support ftp:// connection so you will need to use an FTP app with anonymus login.

The latest beta 20210428 of the Connectivity Kit will download the latest OS version 20210505 automatically. Much more convenient.

If you're using Windows, you can simply use File Explorer. Copy the ftp: url and paste it in File Explorer's address bar, it works fine.

No idea if this works in macOS Finder; I'd guess not, but would like to know if some Mac owner could give it a try.

With the HP PRIME G2, two blue segments are drawn - it works! However, even if the two segments are drawn, <import 'program name' remains in the upper left corner of the calculator screen. Is this a normal thing?
Another question: if I move to HOME or CAS, how can I call and run a program written with the Python App?

Using the old ie does the job.

Even better and long awaited is the automatic download starting the ConnKit
