HP Calc with feet & inches entry ?
Wasn't there an HP calculator with which you could enter feet & inches, for either arithmetic operations, or just for conversion to decimal ? (not for conversion to metric though).
I have a recollection of something like that, perhaps on my 32S or 42S.

The 48/49/50 has conversion for either feet or inches, but not for "feet inches" entry.
However, Joe Horn to the rescue, his FIF program converts between FeetInches, Fraction and Decimal. FIF for the 48: https://www.hpcalc.org/details/2790 FIF49 for the 49/50: https://www.hpcalc.org/details/4824 As far as I know some other HP calculators can convert between inches and cm, but would require a program to convert feetinches to decimal. .

There was the AEC Rom for the HP41 which had decimal feet, meters, inch and fractional which worked great. The module is hard to find though.

If you buy an HP 41CL then the AEC rom is included along with 500 others!

So true
Not sure which one it is, though... Code: 0x010; AECROML.ROM; AECR; 18; AECROM, pg 1; 0x34F1B188
