HP-41: Taking notes on the calculator
NOTE: This program is part of the ISENE.ROM (https://github.com/isene/hp-41_isene-rom). The FOCAL listing can be found in the "src" folder of that project. Any updates and new version will be found there.
No real PDA can do withou a quick notes taker. The same goes for the best PDA ever created: The HP-41.
The simple feature list:
- Simple interface for adding new notes
- Listing notes (or printing them if a printer is attatched
- Editing, sorting and searching
Here is the key mapping (what shows in the programs menu is in parenthesis):
|NOTES||Starts the NOTES program. Shows some of the mapping for the top keys so that you don’t have to remember this list. Pressing R/S will give you the version number of NOTES, another R/S will get you back to the mapping/menu..|
|N+||Enter the note in the alpha register. Then XEQ “N+”. This is a global label so that you can assign it to a key for easy entry of new appointments.|
|LBL A (+)||Same as N+ above, but used inside the program.|
|LBL a (-)||Delete the current record.|
|LBL B (L)||List all notes. If you have a printer attatched, it will print them.|
|LBL b (E)||Edit the current note (calls ED)|
|LBL C (?)||Search the notes file for string in alpha register.|
|LBL D (S)||Forces a sort of the notes file (“NOTES”).|
|LBL d (/)||Forces shrinkage of the “NOTES”-file..|
|LBL E (*)||Go back to the menu.|
Technical notes: This program needs an HP-41CX or the equivalent. It also needs an ascii file called “NOTES” to store the events. It further needs the programs “FLSORT” and “FLSZ+”.
