HP 12c Programming
« on: June 29, 2013, 10:24:03 am »
I recently picked up a (working) HP 12c at a garage sale for $1 (saved $79!!). I also found out that it is a keystroke programmable calculator. I'm just wondering if anyone else here owns an HP 12c. If you do, please share your programs!  :thumbsup: I'm also trying to learn/figure out how to program it...

It has a seven-segment display on it and 99 program steps. Have fun making a Gameboy emulator :P

By seven segment do you mean it only shows 7 chars at once in the screen?

By seven segment I mean the kind of normal displays on basic calculators where each character is split up into seven segments.
Code: [Select]
Looks like this

That is a really neat find. :) Does it retain programs after being turned off?

Oh I see now what you mean Spyro. I wonder if any programmable calc that has multiple rows of characters ever used such type of display before?

You can manage a spaceshutle with calculator with such non graphing segment screen (although the 41 had more than 7-segments to allow alphabets): https://hpinspace.wordpress.com/2009/07/16/hp-41-series-and-the-space-shuttle-program/
