RE: HP41: Updated RUBIK's / CHESS modules
I'd really like to know how to enter prog step 34 "E".

A search through the Hp41 manual / google is not turning up anything for "HP41 E function" :/

Again: just type 1
That's the nerd way of inputting it via synthetic operators to save some valuable nibbles: you cannot just type it from the keyboard.

Just press the EEX key followed by anything other than a digit.

That will give you "1 E", which is one more byte than "1".
As Massimo suggests, just use "1" .

It may be for nerds, but the purpose is that E runs very slightly faster than 1. They have the same byte count. With a number in the exponent, you save a byte and some small execution time.

As mentioned, if in doubt, just type 1.

I know Håkan, I know (just don't know exactly how much faster it is), I didn't want to confuse the matter too much, just offer an alternative. But you explained it very well.

Oh, and "nerd" was in italics...
