HpUserEdit and 48sx
What is the best way to transfer files from a 48sx to/from a Windows PC? I downloaded HpUserEdit, but am not sure if it does the file transfer. It looks like a great IDE though. Am I missing something? Any other software I should be using instead? Thank you!

When I was doing my degree and used intensively the 48, Transfile WIN48, from Yellow Computing was the best option I could find. It came as a "pack" with my HP48G (calculator + software + cable for the equivalent of 150eur) It also added a huge amount of shareware for the calculator... I ignore the availability of it now, or if it works on newer OS's (Win XP was the last I tested and was OK).

I believe the HP ConnKit4 will work with an SX, however you would be limited to Kermit protocol as there is no XMODEM library for the SX (included in ConnKit for GX and 49/50 have this built-in).

If that does not work and you can't locate TransFile Win48, let me know.

The HP ConnKit does work on Win-7 x64.

I may be mistaken, but Debug4x includes a file transfer program. It not only allows you to program in assembly and sysrpl, but I believe you can also program in user rpl as well.

Not sure HPUserEdit work with an HP48SX emulator (?), but perhaps this could work :

1/ Write your program with HPUserEdit and debug it with the emulator
2/ When OK, export your file from HPUserEdit in binary format (file - export)
3/ Use the connectivity kit to transfert your program in the 48 SX

For what I know, you can't transfert a program directly from HPUserEdit to a 48-50 hardware device. You have to use the connectivity kit.

HPUserEdit is a perfect tool for write User RPL Program.

Note that you can alo import bin file from the HP50 (and perhaps 48)

Transfile Win 48: $4 04-29-2015, 01:23 AM Post: #7  Sanjeev Visvanatha Member Posts: 267 Joined: Dec 2013 RE: HpUserEdit and 48sx Thank you all for the suggestions. I tried Hp 48 Explorer for transferring files between my Win XP machine and the 48SX. HpUserEdit is used to create and debug on the PC with a 48SX emulator. This seems to work for me. In terms of Transfile Win 48, I may give that a shot.$4 product plus $10 shipping to Canada makes me want to try this free route first -- Sanjeev Visvanatha 04-29-2015, 01:42 AM Post: #8  Dave Frederickson Senior Member Posts: 2,120 Joined: Dec 2013 RE: HpUserEdit and 48sx (04-28-2015 06:25 PM)Dave Frederickson Wrote: (04-28-2015 01:49 PM)rprosperi Wrote: If that does not work and you can't locate TransFile Win48, let me know.

I personally use the "Library 1275: XYMODEM v3.2 for S/G" on the HP48SX for transfering data from and to the calculator. With this library restoring a RAM Backup with ~128KB took about 3 min vs. 30 min with the Kermit protocol.

The library is part of AS-Comm from André Schoorl's Compilations in the directory "comm/misc/xymodem32.lib".

The problem today is finding a X/YModem program for the PC supporting the serial interface. Users of WinXP and earlier can use the integrated program Hyperterminal for this.

Thanks Christoph, I was not aware of this library, yet another jewel from AS.

FYI - HyperTerminal can still be used on Win-7 (as well as Win-8) - instructions and a link to download the needed files can be found here.

Thank you for the Hyperterminal / Library 1275: XYMODEM v3.2 recommendation! It works well in XP.
