Plots a function on an HP82240 printer. 
plot_thomas: raw txt  Modified version of PLOT; like the original, with SOLVE support added. 
miscfn: raw txt  Original version of MISCFN from the HP42S manual.
Calculates (x/360) * sin(3*x) + 1; used to demonstrate the PLOT program. Set DEG and ALL modes; in PLOT, use YMIN=0.5, YMAX=2, AXIS=0, XMIN=360, XMAX=360, XINC=45.

gc: raw txt  SOLVE program to compute the Great Circle Distance between two points on the Earth. Coordinates should be entered in decimal degrees; distance is computed in kilometers. 
sun: raw txt  SOLVE program to compute the height of the sun above the horizon.
Variables used: TILT: the angle between the Earth's axis of rotation and the normal of the ecliptic (23.5 degrees); LAT: observer's latitude (use positive values for Northern latitudes, negative values for Southern latitudes); SEAS: the current season, given as an angle between 0 and 360 degrees, with 0 being midwinter in the Northern hemisphere, 90 being the Northern Spring equinox, etc.; TOD: time of day (solar time, from 024, where 12 is noon; solar time differs from official time, depending on where you are within your time zone); HGHT: height of the sun above the horizon, in degrees; negative numbers mean nighttime. 
prm_dec: raw txt  Original version of Erik Ehrling's PRM? program.
NOTE: this program relies on decimal math, and will NOT produce correct results on Free42 Binary. 
prm_bin: raw txt  Modified version of PRM?; works with binary math, enabling it to
run on Free42 Binary.
Before using, store 2^20 in "E6" and 2^40 in "E12" (you can use 2^26 and 2^52, respectively, too; that way the program can work with even larger numbers). 
diag: raw txt  Constructs banddiagonal matrices. Put the desired dimension in X, and put a vector containing the (off)diagonal elements in Y. If the vector's length is odd, its middle element will go on the diagonal; if its length is even, the element just before the middle will go on the diagonal. 
stress: raw txt  Not actually a functional program; just contains all the HP42S instructions with all legal types of arguments. I used this to test the "raw" mode program import/export in Free42. 
mast: raw txt  The classic Master Mind numberguessing game. Numbers can contain digits 1 to 6, with duplicates allowed. Results are displayed as B.W, with B the number of black pegs (right color AND right position), and W the number of white pegs (right color, wrong position). Use the "up" and "down" keys to scroll through the current game's history. 
minehunt: raw txt  Minehunt game, similar to the builtin game on the HP48. By Erik Ehrling. 
rtmin: raw txt  A program that finds extrema and roots of arbitrary functions. Contributed by Namir Shammas; see here for documentation. 
RootsEqns: raw txt  A program that solves multiple nonlinear equations. Contributed by Namir Shammas; see here for documentation. 
mlran: raw txt  A program that performs multiple linear regression. Contributed by Namir Shammas; see here for documentation. 
pi_dec: raw txt  Calculates up to 1110 Digits of pi on the HP41, more on a 42S.
Put the desired number of digits in X and do XEQ "PI". When done,
the digits of pi will be stored in register 04 and up. See
here for documentation and the program listing.
NOTE: this program relies on decimal math, and will NOT produce correct results on Free42 Binary.

ASTRO_TSO: raw
txt
ASTRA_TSO: raw txt 
Astronavigation (Celestial Navigation)
The target audience of both programs is the 'sextant community'. These programs make
the HP42S (Free42) a worthy equivalent of an astrocomputer to navigate by the sun.
ASTRO_TSO: calculates the fix using the standard azimuthintercept method of Marcq
St. Hilaire which is based on the calculation of the point of intersection of 2 position lines.
Both programs have a builtin almanac of the sun with an average error of +/ 0.3' on
the GHA and DEC and make the use of plotting sheets superfluous.
Documentation in English and
Dutch.

unixtime: raw txt  Conversion between Unix timestamps and local time: UTIME returns current time as
a Unix timestamp; T2U converts from local time (date in Y, time in X) to a Unix timestamp,
and U2T converts a Unix timestamp to local time (date in Y, time in X).
It uses TZOFF to hold the offset between local time and UTC, in hours. For example, Central European Standard Time is one hour ahead of UTC, so set TZOFF = 1. If TZOFF is unset, it is assumed to be zero. 
DO_CALC: raw
txt
N_CAL: raw txt 
Dissolved Oxygen and Ammonia Nitrogen calculations. The author writes:
"I have two programs for upload and review. They have helped me immensely in the waste water laboratory setting and
would like to share. One calculates the Dissolved oxygen (DO) in saturated laboratory grade water at temp and
barometric pressure. This is used for the air calibration of a DO meter used in the five day Biological Oxygen Demand
(BOD) test. The other is used for the calculation of ammonia nitrogen using an ammonia nitrogen probe with standard
addition. This is a much faster method than is normally used, it just takes a bit more mathematics."
