Question: any alternative readers that is able to access/read the 'collections' for books?

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.

Not sure which would be best...guessing X48 at

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
An HP48 emulator – decompiler for Unix/Linux or Windows (using Cygwin) by Paul Courbis

Thinking X48 at 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, oops? . Let's say: it has a calculator, though .
