Both WP 31S and WP 34S manuals now available for individual POD
Hi all,

The subject tells the story. Please find the ...
  • WP 34S manual here and the ...
  • WP 31S manual here ...
for individual print on your demand.

Since page size had to be changed from ISO A5 to 6 x 9 Imperial British thumbs (since the printer is located in such a backward place) and the pagecount determines the cost, I've reformated the WP 34S manual again so you find everything on 30 pages less. Latest release notes: Update following changed fraction input; updated LEAP? and prefix handling. Minor copyediting.

Enjoy!

Thanks Walter, this is a great option for folks that missed the large print runs. Of course you realize that you now must quote any page reference that you make 4 different ways (PDF, 3.2 hard copy, original 3.3 hard copy and this new 3.3 hard copy) Wink

Can you release (PDF?) errata to the hard copy books published to date? If PDF is not desirable, maybe just here in the forum as bulleted notes so we can annotate our hard copies? Though there have not been too many corrections, the notes are strewn across months of posts with no clear way to find them all.

Any format/method you prefer is fine, above are just ideas. Thanks for considering this.

The description says 344 pages. That's 100 pages more than the previous Firmware V3.2 edition. Is that correct?

The page size decreased IIRC.

Thanks, it's confusing since Walter wrote, "I've reformated the WP 34S manual again so you find everything on 30 pages less."

For the WP 34S, the printed editions had/have
  • 244 pages (3.2 large footprint)
  • 370 pages (3.3 spiral bound batch 1)
  • 374 pages (3.3 spiral bound batch 2)
  • 344 pages (3.3 now).

IIRC the 3.3 spiral bound batch 1 version has less pages than the batch 2 version.

Can you release (PDF?) errata to the hard copy books published to date?

There was an errata sheet for 3.2 published here (PDF).

Between 3.3 SB and now, there was only progress, no obvious errors. The description for LEAP now reads:
Quote:(0) [n] Takes x as a year and tests it for a leap year.
[d] Takes x as a date in the format selected, extracts the year, and tests for a leap year.

Regarding fractions, I added the parenthesis here: The maximum denominator is 9 999 (greater denominators may be entered but will be reduced as soon as input is closed).

And for the prefixes, we added [->][h] equals NOP.

That's all IIRC.

Thanks for sharing, but...
there is no link for 'here' or 'PDF'.
I don't recall seeing this in the past, probably missed it.

And thanks for these other notes as well.

Merci Didier, you were faster than me. That errata sheet was published in January 2014.

P.S.: Just corrected an error on p. 15 of the WP 31S manual Jonathan found. Thanks to him. Smile Uploaded corrected data. Updated book will be available tomorrow again.

Manual arrived today, very nice.

However, it is for Firmware 3.2, not 3.3.

Have already complained at createspace.

Of course, you ought to order the one you want Wink (both v3.2 and v3.3 are available for the WP 34S).

Ordered via the link you gave at the start of the thread. No mention of 3.2 in the ordering process.
