The HP42 correctly interprets the command ├ by displaying whatever follows in quotes, i.e.,
107 ├"VOLUME" would show the word VOLUME in the display.

How is the command ├ entered in a program? I can't find it anywhere on the keyboard or sub-menus.

Actually, no. It appends the word "VOLUME" to the alpha register (as opposed to replacing the contents with "VOLUME"). It then needs to be displayed with something like AVIEW.

Once you've entered ALPHA mode in PRGM mode, press ENTER to switch into APPEND mode.

There are only 10 types of people in this world. Those who understand binary and those who don't.

RE: HP42 commanf
Thanks for the replies. The command wasn't in the short version HP42 book, however i found the full PDF version of the HP42 manual on the HP41 site so maybe I won't have to ask (m)any more questions.
