How would one port the open source code for the HP48, an excellent old high end scientific calculator, to a kobo Aura with KSM9 and Koreader?

Do you happen to have a link? Because otherwise I can't do much better than say: it depends .

There are links to several in the 48HP Wikipedia, down in the emulator segment. page.https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HP_48_series.

Not sure which would be best...guessing X48 at https://github.com/dparnell/i48


Emulators[edit]
Emu48 for Windows
X48 for Mac OS X, POSIX (Unix/Linux)
i48 - HP48GX emulator for iOS, based on X48
m48 – HP48 emulator for the iPhone, based on Emu48
Droid48 – HP48G Emulator for Android, based on X48
droid48sx – HP48SX Emulator for Android, based on Droid48

Thinking X48 at https://github.com/dparnell/i48 might be suitable.

But there are several others in the listed under emulators in the HP 48 series wiki

That seems fairly macOS/iOS-specific, so that one'd be a hard no.


The tricky bit is going to be the UI. If you need something else than a CLI shell, good luck .

After I posted noticed link was actually directed to the i48 conversion of X48 that's at a .de site that needs a log in.
Thought there was a chance it would just be simple procedure and be nice back up for my 30 year old calculator.
Its a bit different from most calculators as it uses reverse polish notation and a stack.

Well, RPN means it's doable with a simple CLI interface, which is potentially Good News.

Plato has an RPN module, for instance .

EDIT: Or, err, does it? I was possibly thinking of https://github.com/nerdypepper/eva, oops? . Let's say: it has a calculator, though .
