Very nice use of the TI-58/59 Hierarchical registers!

For those who never heard about the HIR commands and their use: take a look here.

So the HIR sequence in the program can be entered this way:

Code:
Enter this                 get that key   code                 cmd   code ----------                 ----------  STO   42                  HIR    82  82    82                  03     03    ' store percentage in H3   3    03                  HIR    82  STO   42    delete all    11     11    ' recall base number from H1  82    82    STO commands  HIR    82   A    11    (code 42)     43     43    ' multiply by percentage in H3  STO   42    and get =>    HIR    82  82    82                  13     13    ' recall result from H3  RCL   43  82    82   C    13

Hint: the program assumes there are no other pending operations. To be sure, press [CLR] or [=] before using this program.

Question to the TI experts: would it be possible to directly multiply percentage and base number within H2? And do the division by 100 also in H2 (by a HIR 62) in order to recall the final result from there? My idea is something like this:

Code:
150 [+] 17 [A]  =>  25,50     [=]         => 175,50

Edit: I have absolutely no idea if this may work, but you get the idea (in this case still using the third hierarchy register).

Code:
000 76 LBL 001 11 A 002 82 HIR 003 03 03   ' store % in H3 004 82 HIR 005 11 11   ' recall base 006 82 HIR 007 43 43   ' multiply by % 008 93 . 009 00 0 010 01 1 011 82 HIR 012 43 43   ' multiply (base * %) by 0.01 013 83 HIR 014 13 13   ' recall result 015 82 HIR 016 02 02   ' store this as 2nd operand in H2 017 91 R/S

Please let me know if (and why) this will not work – and how to make it work. ;-)

Ah, great, so it really can be done directly within the second hierarchy register.
BTW, is the initial HIR 02 required?

The last time I got my hands on a TI58/59 was at school in the early Eighties. Can someone recommend a good PC emulator that behaves more or less exactly as the real thing?

I just tried this on Hrastprogrammer's TI59E emulator that is said to run the original microcode. Here the .01 HIR 42 sequence does not work (after the HIR command the display switches from .01 to 100), but 100 HIR 62 does it.

So this is the final version:

Code:
000  76 LBL 001  11  A 002  82 HIR 003  02  02 004  82 HIR 005  11  11 006  82 HIR 007  42  42 008  01  1 009  00  0 010  00  0 011  82 HIR 012  62  62 013  82 HIR 014  12  12 015  92 RTN

BTW, answering my own question: obviously the last operand (the one in the display) is not automatically stored in HIR, so the initial HIR 02 is required.

RE: [TI-59/58] Percentage calculation.
hp41cx,
thank you to report my emulator.

Dieter,
I recommend you, certainly, my emulator but you can also see the links to other emulators in the menu "Emulators" on my website ti58c.mooo.com .
For the HIR feature, my emulator allows to use it, but I do not use these registers in the basic operations (H0... H9 registers are independent of standard operations.) but the HIR command is usable via the calculator keyboard.
(Remember that my emulator offers more than 100 programs and more than 200 skins!)
Enjoy with TI emulator and find again the pleasure to use an old but great technology of the twentieth century.

Although that .01 HIR 42 result looked like bug at first, I checked it on all TI-59 emulators I have access to, and they all produced the same result:

(1) My TI-59E for HP-48SX/48G+/48GX/49G/49G+/50G

(2) My TI-59E for Windows

(3) TI-59 emulator by Hynek Sladky (Windows console version)

(4) TI-59 emulator by Willibald Meyer (Windows version)

I believe the real TI-59 should behave the same, but I don't have a working one to check it ...

Very interesting. OK, the 58C has a ROM that's different from the 59. Since it appeared quite a while after the 58/59 were released this could be a kind of bugfix.

I did some more tests on TI59.EXE for Windows, using a short test program:

Code:
000  76 LBL 001  11  A 002  32 x<>t 003  01  1 004  82 HIR 005  01  01 006  32 x<>t 007  82 HIR 008  41  41 009  82 HIR 010  11  11 011  92 RTN

This loads the first HIR with 1 and multiplies this by the input before the register is finally recalled. So if everything works as expected the output should match the input.

Here is what I got:

Code:
input          output --------------------- 1       [A]         1 3       [A]         3 4,5     [A]       4,5 635,7   [A]     635,7 -17     [A]       -17 0,1     [A]        10 0,0123  [A]       123 0,00005 [A]    500000

So in numbers with negative exponent the sign of the latter is ignored. 0,1 = 1E-1 becomes 1E+1 = 10, and 5E-5 becomes 5E+5 = 500000.

But wait, it's getting even better:

Code:
input                   output ------------------------------ 100000      [x^2]        1  10             [1/x]  ,0000000001        [÷] 10 [=]        1 -11             [A]          1 -11             [x^2]        1 -22             [A]          1 -22

So very small values are handled correctly while for larger ones the sign of the exponent is ignored. Further tests showed that the limit seems to be 5E-11. See below.

Now let's enter values below 1 in EE mode.

Code:
input          output ---------------------- 1 EE -1  [A]     1 -01 5 EE -5  [A]     5 -05 3 EE -99 [A]     3 -99

So in EE mode everything sees to work fine!

Now let's try ENG mode

Code:
2nd ENG input          output --------------------- 123     [A]   123  00 1234    [A] 1,234  03 0,123   [A]   123 -03 0,00005 [A]    50 -06 INV ENG       0,00005

So ENG mode seems to work fine, too.

All in all it turned out that the problem with the ingored exponent sign only occured if the number was displayed without an exponent. That's why 5E-11 still shows the problem (display is rounded to ,0000000001) while 4,99E-11 has no problems (display is 4,99 -11). Is this strange, or what?

BTW, I just discovered some other odd behaviour, not sure whether it's the same on a real hardware 58/59/58C:

Code:
 input         display --------------------- 123 EE 15 =   1,23 17     EE 5      1,23 75        9      1,23 59        =      1,23 59     EE 0      1,23 90        3      1,23 03        =                    // this was originally missing INV EE        1230

So even after a number has been entered or calculated, pressing EE seems to re-edit the exponent.

RE: [TI-59/58] Percentage calculation.
Well, I was finally able to revive my ancient TI-59 by using an stabilized power supply and that .01 HIR 42 thing behaves exactly like on the above emulators. Using 100 HIR 62 gives the correct result.

This is the same as on the real TI-59 and emulators because the original sequence is missing = before INV EE.

Right, a [=] was missing. Either before or after the [INV] [EE].
