(/thread-13196.html) HP Calc with feet & inches entry ? - kbarb - 06-28-2019 03:26 AM Wasn't there an HP calculator with which you could enter feet & inches, for either arithmetic operations, or just for conversion to decimal ? (not for conversion to metric though). I have a recollection of something like that, perhaps on my 32S or 42S. RE: HP Calc with feet & inches entry ? - EugeneNine - 06-28-2019 02:30 PM 48 does with the units menu RE: HP Calc with feet & inches entry ? - BartDB - 06-28-2019 03:52 PM The 48/49/50 has conversion for either feet or inches, but not for "feet inches" entry. However, Joe Horn to the rescue, his FIF program converts between Feet-Inches, Fraction and Decimal. FIF for the 48: https://www.hpcalc.org/details/2790 FIF49 for the 49/50: https://www.hpcalc.org/details/4824 As far as I know some other HP calculators can convert between inches and cm, but would require a program to convert feet-inches to decimal. . RE: HP Calc with feet & inches entry ? - Ken S - 06-28-2019 06:12 PM There was the AEC Rom for the HP41 which had decimal feet, meters, inch and fractional which worked great. The module is hard to find though. RE: HP Calc with feet & inches entry ? - Gene - 06-28-2019 06:16 PM If you buy an HP 41CL then the AEC rom is included along with 500 others!
