General Tools

(0.7 kB)
Appsman.zip
(8 kB)
Filers.htm
Simplifying and expanding the HP49-filer. This package contains 3 filer versions which enrich the builtin filer and simplify it at the same time. Main advantages over the builtin filer are the fast creation of HOME backups with Date&Time stamp and convenient tools for hiding and unhiding.  8.2003

OT49.htm
Offers library-, menu-, programming- and compression-tools and allows to recall menus, standard or user key assignments, and to toggle fonts, flags and other items. Both for the normal and the advanced user. Our library and compression tools are probably the best ones available.  8.2003

Hide.htm
Permits hiding any files in any directory, e.g., such disturbing files as IOPAR and PPAR. Hidden Directory management is also included. Hidden files are known to each command except VARS.

Choosext.htm
Makes the builtin CHOOSE command much more powerful by giving it a fourth argument, a list for creating a user-defined menu while the choose box is active, to do more than merely CANCL or OK.
