Has anyone installed ZUC?

I can run it, but the units don't convert right and I can't reach the program's author.

Does anyone have any ideas?

This sounds silly, but this little app was a factor that drew me to the Zaurus.

Thanks,
Kent!

I have ZUC installed, but haven't checked it out much.
What units are you trying to convert?
ksignorini
Well, even a simple 73 Deg F to Deg C doesn't work right.

73 = 23 but when I enter 73 Deg F, and press Go, both windows show -16.6666669!!!

Weird!

Could you try that and see what you get? Perhaps I have a bad download and could get you to send me your copy if it works.

btw: What hardware/OS are you running it on? Did you makecompat it? Which feed of oz-compat did you use?

Thanks,
Kent!

OK, I enter 73 F, and I get 22.778 C.

I am running SL-5500 with Sharp Rom 3.13.

Here is a link to where I got my copy

Hope this helps.

Well, I reflashed Sharp ROM 2.38 to see if the problem was with OZ 3.5.1 and sure enough...

When I use Sharp, ZUC works fine and so does entering numbers and calculations in Hancom Sheet. In OpenZaurus 3.5.1, all the numbers are mixed up Hancom Sheet (I enter 777 in a cell and it shows me 14) and in ZUC, it's as I explained above.

Any OZ 3.5.1-ers out there know how to fix this?

Thanks,
Kent!

as an alternative, aren't there calculator programs that also convert?

Just another reason I stick to standard Sharp Rom.. It's very stable, and everything works very well.

I made a unit converter as a way to learn how to program for the zaurus. I never got much feedback after it was initially made, and I have been away from the zaurus since then! I might be getting back into some programming this winter, I hope! Maybe I could improve it. I only tried on sharp ROM for 5500 and it was doing the calcs correctly:

You could try the results here:

Or look over the posts and help I had making it from this boards here:
http://www.oesf.org/forums/inde...wtopic=2505&hl=

And these discusions we had about setting up the developer environment:

JDF,

The location does not seem to be working.

Thanks,

Anyone else having problems with URL. It seems to work fine for me.

The link worked now...maybe server was on the blink earlier?

Anyway, I'll give it a go.

Thanks!

Won't run.

This is what I get running it at the command line:

ucz: error while loading shared libraries: libuuid.so.1: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory


Any ideas what this is all about? I tried running it before and after makecompat and I get the same result each time.

Thanks,
Kent!
