FIX_ _ on HP41 (fixed point display)
Sorry for the trivial question,
On the HP41 the function FIX when used prompts you for a single digit (from 0 to 9), but I've noticed that in a particular configuration prompts instead for two digits (_ _), this is sure due to the modules loaded, but why ?

The ZENROM and maybe others let you do FIX 10.

Thank-you Garth, and sorry for my bad english, I realize now a mistake in the question....it should be "which" (modules) and not "why"..., but you understood..

So maybe the ZENROM is not the one which allows FIX10...

The SandMath adds one field to the single-digit prompts, this may be the cause in your system if you have it plugged in. This is mantioned in page #44 of the SandMath Manual.

Thank-you Angel.
I've cheched it, but sure I had noticed it with the ZENROM, 'cause, if I'm not wrong it was not so with the previous SM release.
