RE: Stupid HP-41CX tricks
Nice project. Yes, the 41, especially the cx, is capable of a lot of data acquisition and control functions, which is why I got into it in 1986—to control repetitive processes on the work bench and take data. To my knowledge, there was no easier way to do this back then (or maybe even today!), and no quicker way to develop test programs. I never had the CMT-200, but I had the HP82169A HPIL-to-HPIB interface converter which opened up the possibility of interfacing to thousands of models of lab instrumentation from HP, Kiethley, Wavetek, Cytec, and other companies, and many instruments at the same time. This is something the newer calcs cannot do. They're just calculators, while the 41 is a very worthy (even if not very fast) controller.

Congratulations on your project. (Lots of HP-41 links at the bottom of the links page, )
