I have a HP 42s. I am a steel fabrication draftsman who needs several programs. I need a program that converts feet-inches-16ths to decimal inches and back. I also need a program that gives me slope dimensions in an additive string.
Can anyone help me?

I'm sure I'm not the only one who has been looking at your posts and thinking this: I know the 42's user language is similar to the 41's, but I don't know anything else about it. HP wrote great manuals back then though, and I'm sure most of what you need is there. Do you have your manuals? Maybe if you wanted to take a crack at it and then tell us what problems you run into, we 41 people might be able to see which way the bear went into the woods, and give helpful advice.
