Development tools for the HP49G+.
The HP49G+ is a really powerfull calculator that brings a lot of new programming
concepts to what is usually called a 'RPN' calculator. There are different
ways of programming it:
- using User RPL language and tools (not really the geek's way of programming).
- using System RPL and Saturn Assembly language (see the HP Tools).
- using compiled langages such as C or Pascal for Saturn/RPL
(see HP Pascal (in french).
- using ARM based-tools (actually compiled langage too).
Not really interesting since you can check on the web (try google with "HP49 RPL
System RPL& Saturn assembly langage:
This was the first really langage that people used to create powerfull software
for the HP48/49.The HP49 has a built-in development library that can be used to
compile fast applications(256/257). Simply do"256 ATTACH" and "256 MENU" to see
You can either use the HP Tools (Get
Here) to work on your PC or use the
extable/emacs development environment from Carsten Dominik.
Compiled langage for Saturn CPU:
C have been
ported to the HP48/49 calcs, but it didn't spread widely
since it was hard to use and not a lot of manuals/example have been released.
Here is the interesting thing. Go there.
