ImageExcelCalcs author Alex Tomanovich develops software for HP hand held calculators if his software is as good as his spreadsheets they will be essential items to all Structural Engineers. Alex writes:

In the past I developed 3 structural engineering software plug-in cards for use in the HP48GX scientific handheld calculator. These 3 software cards were originally marketed for me by Surveyors’ Module Inc. (SMI), and later by Eagle Point Software. These cards were marketed from 1993 – 2002, which basically paralleled the life of the HP48GX calculator.
I have just recently completed porting over all of the libraries found on the 3 cards mentioned above, as well as several other useful structural engineering programs and utilities that I developed for use on the new HP50g scientific calculator. Please note that all these programs will also work in the HP49G and HP49g+ calculators as well.
What you will receive is a CD containing 44 structural engineering program libraries, and 6 miscellaneous libraries pertaining to math related utilities, hydraulics, and financial programs. On this CD you will also receive PDF file copies of my 3 original structural engineering software card manuals, as well as MS-Word or text file format documentation for all of the other libraries found on the CD. (PLEASE NOTE that the attached photos are of the original software manuals that I developed for the HP48 system, and are shown for reference only. You will NOT receive hard copies of the manuals, just the electronic PDF file copies on CD.) I will also include a custom menu (CST) variable on the CD to be loaded in the HOME directory of your calculator which will facilitate in accessing and running all of these programs.
Plus as a BONUS, on the CD I will include a copy of the public domain EMU48 emulator software of the HP48GX calculator for the PC, in which I have installed all 50 of these programs in a 2mb electronic memory card in the emulator itself. I have included an easy installation instruction file, which will help you get the emulator installed. Once installed, you will be able to access and run all 50 of these programs on your PC as well as your handheld.
NOTE: you MUST have a PC/HP calculator interface cable to download all these files to the HP calculator. However, in the case of either the HP50g or the HP49g+, you may use an SD plug-in memory card instead to transfer all the files from the PC to the calculator.
The following is a listing and description of the program libraries including in this package:
