A Little Knowledge Is A Dangerous Thing...

RPN was mentioned in another thread, and I said I was writing an introduction to RPN. A preliminary version is available on my web site, for those who might be interested.

Up by the page number, in the upper right corner, you'll see what looks like a turned down page. Click the turned down part for the next page, or the exposed corner for the previous page.

I also like your point about it being easier to spot mistakes. In RPN you see the result as it is being computed. You normally have a feel for what the intermediate answers should look like, so you'll spot a miscalculation right away.
Using algebraic entry simply give you the final answer without any knowledge of what went into it. RPN gives you the entire history of the solution.

There is one comment I received that I have to address here, as the return e-mail address given by the person leaving the comment was invalid. The person was submitting a correction, claiming the HP 33s was discontinued in 1984, yet I had called it a current model. The 33s is a current model. Perhaps this person was thinking of the 32s. If he does not believe the 33s is a current model, he can check it here.
I have completely redone the document. It is now a downloadable PDF file, and includes new information and examples. It can be found in the downloads section of my site.
Please feel free to comment on the document, if you wish. Your input is always welcome.
