All of you knows HP, and RPN(reverse polish notation). Why could't anyone make a RPN-prog in C, or asm? I think that a lot of people could use Casio instead of HP.

if we knew how to use the casio math functions in a program, it would be rather easy to make. But otherwise, it wouldn't integrate well with rest of the casio software, and wouldn't be very good as just a separate thing.

Hello all my Dear Friends! :D
I had to learn about the RPN at the 1st year of my technical studies.
In my opinion RPN was good in times when computer (or rather calculator memories) were to small to do RPN->"normal" translation, but nowadays as we all know memory is not a problem. For most people doing calculations like they were thaught during n-years of the primary shool is the best. In my opinion (ofcourse I may be wrong, because I used RPN only to pass my exams :) ) using RPN on a calculator with CASIO capabilities is like making a step backwards. Please correct if I am wrong.

I think you are right. And I think that most people would't use the add-in, to be sure.

Well, HP is no longer developing calculators, so if that crowd is used to RPN, and the FX2 has a well integrated RPN system, it would be good.

Hint hint to casio... might want to release a little info here...

in my opinion, and just my opinion... RPN comes very much in handy for large equations, and for people who do alot of work with large equations. being a person who uses alot of large equations i noticed that RPN is alot faster to use because the use of parentheses is not required, and if you want to change a term you can simply (on an hp) scroll up to the stack entry and enforce your will.

the other side is that a casio calc with RPN could entice hp users to migrate since alot (if not most) have a deep resentment for TI's... which i can understand, yet most of them wont be willing to give up their RPN.
