I wrote my first HP 41 emulator for DOS operating system at years 1994-1995.
The emulator was published on Internet at 1995 .
I created "The hp41 emulator page" on www.geocities.com at year 1995.
Since 2009, geocities.com is off line, so , I translated the html pages here.
At year 2004 I began to write an HP41 emulator for Windows, updating the old DOS code.
Later I decided to write more emulators for the HP family of calculators,
beginning with the HP67.
I began to write the MyRPL programming language at year 2016.
You will find all these programs here.
Comments and questions welcome . Please, excuse errors in English usage.
You may help to the evolution of these emulators and MyRPL. If you find an error on
them, e-mail me. Thanks.

Magic Creator with preconfigured buttons and variables.(2019/12/05). This is an example of custom configuration
(2019/11/30) - Programs at https://www.hpmuseum.org/rpl.htm were tested OK.
(2019/11/30) - Program examples available at wikipedia (RPL language) were tested all OK.
(2019/11/30) - Discovered an issue in magic creator when loading buttons. Workaround:
A message appears when trying to load a file with button definitions. The choices are Accept or Ignore.
Press Ignore and all is fine.
Tip: When assigning variables to buttons allways check out
if the foreground color (fore_color) is different to the background color (back_color).
Obviously, if the colors are equal, nothing is seen in the button.
Red green and blue intensity of colors in MyRPL.(2019/08/10). Creation of a variable used to convert RGB to a single numeric value.
To assign an internal command as SIN to an empty assignable button: First
create a unnamed program variable with the command.
Example: << SIN >>. Enter
Later store the program variable to the variable name SIN.
Write SIN and press the button
Note that in this case, SIN is an internal command linked to a variable name
with the same name.
Go to view buttons. Assign the program variable SIN to a button number.
Press Ctrl and W of your PC keyboard at same time to save the assignment.
Optional: Change the button background color with mouse right click
Magic creator has 100 empty assignable buttons. Only variables could be linked
to buttons. Shift0 shows the first 25 buttons, shift1 shows buttons 26 to 50,
shift2 shows buttons 51 to 75, shift3 shows buttons 76 to 100.

Try to run MyRPL with the calculator minimized ! . To do this: load first the calculator, from
the menu: open the windows: Numeric, Basic operations, display2 and stack. Panel has
some assignments so open it too.
When you end to load these windows, minimize the calculator !
Use the window DISPLAY2 to enter data into the stack.
If you use the Window NUMERIC the data appears on the window DISPLAY2
Do you want to use external forms?. Load the forms before minimize the calculator.
Do you want that the window DISPLAY2 maintain (keep) data after Enter is used? On the calculator
go to status and check out "copy first level to display". Later minimize the calculator !
MyRPL minimized . Only some windows shown. View a Screenshot
