Bugs/ROM-Versions:: - 0 SEED (from DATAFILE V32N2P4) - after exiting a self-text (C-y^x or C-1/x), the RAD/GRAD, 0-4, and HEX/OCT/BIN annunciators are cleared, but the corresponding modes and flags are not changed (reported by Ben Salinas) - The ->HMS function does not always yield the correct result when the input is a negative number. - When doing ->y,x on a number where the X or Y value may be zero, the result may be inaccurate. - The Cn,r function will not display an overflow message but will instead return an inaccurate answer. - Antonio Maschio posted an entry to the HP Museum board about an integer division bug. When invoked by keyboard or from program, it returns the correct results. However, the results differ in EQN: Operation INT\:- Rmdr IDIV(EQN) RMDR(EQN) INT\:-(PRGM) RMDR(PRGM) 9 / 7 1 2 1 2 1 2 9 /-7 -2 -5 -1 -5 -2 -5 -9 /-7 1 -2 1 -2 1 -2 -9 / 7 -2 5 -1 5 -2 5 Full writeup at: http://www.hpmuseum.org/cgi-sys/cgiwrap/hpmuseum/archv016.cgi?read=97090#97090 - This machine went through a number of different screens. In the Fall of 2005, they introduced yet one more. Notes:: Manufactured by Kinpo (http://www.kinpo.com.tw). From USENET: From: Leif Harcke <firstname.lastname@example.org> Newsgroups: comp.sys.hp48 Subject: Re: HP-33S Manual online Date: Sat, 08 Nov 2003 10:02:13 -0800 ... The manual is a one-to-one mapping from the 32sII manual, with an additional Appendix C - "ALG: Summary" on the algebraic mode. The 33s will have 1) 31k user memory vs. 384 bytes in the 32sII 2) letter+4 program line labels (A0001 vs. A01) 3) Algebraic mode and algebraic programs 4) 2-line display (X and Y of stack, much more in algebraic mode) 5) cursor keys to navigate menus The programming model remains variables/labels A-Z and index i, so the increase in memory doesn't help much if you exhaust the label or variable space. The algebraic mode may expand the user base for this type of programmable scientific calculator. The complex number model remains the same as that in the 32sII, i.e. X contains real and Y contains imaginary. It needs all 4 stack levels to add two complex numbers. No 15c-like complex numbers. The algebraic complex number mode looks interesting. -Leif From "Summing up the HP-33S" by Jordi Hidalgo, DATAFILE: - simple loops run about twice as fast as on the 32SII provided ISG and DSE are NOT used - solving and integration are 1.5 - 3 times as fast - there's a reset hole in the back - the length of an equation is now limited to 255 characters - the trailing parenthesis (")") of two-argument functions is now required - on the other hand, +/- and - can ce used interchangably on the second argument - EXP(-X^2) now means EXP(-(X^2)), which fixes an inconsistency on the 32SII: 25-5^2 evaluated to 0 while -5^2+25 evaluated to 50 - a colon and not space is used to separate arguments, but both the colon and space can be used in messages - calculations with "too big" numbers in binary modes are OK so long as the result is in display range - if a program is stopped while calculating an integral, the program can't be resumed - certain calculations do not produce the same results on both machines (e.g., gamma of 9.29 or 8.29!), suggesting that the CPU is running native rather than full emulation - MEM and SHOW results differ, as do checksum calculations for equations and programs. Nibbles no longer come into play. Amount of Memory Used Data 32SII 33S Variables 8 bytes per non-zero value. No bytes. Variables (including (No bytes for zero values). i and the statistics registers) take up no user memory. Statistics data 48 bytes maximum (8 bytes Always allocated. for each non-zero register). Numbers in Integers 0 through 254: 1.5 15 bytes. No short form for program lines bytes. All other numbers: 9.5 frequently used values, but constants in program lines take 3 bytes, unless they are part of an equation. Instructions in 1.5 bytes 3 bytes program lines Equations in 1.5 bytes + 1.5 for each 3 bytes + 1 byte for each program lines function + 9.5 or 1.5 for character (255 maximum). each number. Each ( and each ) uses 1.5 bytes, except the ( for prefix functions. Numbers in Integers 0 through 254: 1.5 Each entry in the equation equations bytes. All other numbers: 9.5 list takes 6 bytes + 1 byte for each character. (255 Operations in 1.5 bytes maximum). equations - the algorithms for SOLVE and \S have been rewritten. VIEW and STOP instructions in programs that are being solved or integrated are executed only once, not each time the routine is called by SOLVE or Integrate; in order to monitor their execution, intermediate steps can be displayed by the sequence VIEW var PSE - the new message INVALID VAR is displayed when attempting to solve an equation for a non-existent variable. - SOLVE now fails to find the pole in the example on page D-7 of the user's manual (C-8 in the 32SII owner's manual) A change in the LCD screen to make it more legible will be made in late 2005.
