With the cg50 is it possible to use a program inline? For example, say I have a parallel resistor program named RR with two input arguments. Is there a way I can use this program inline as a function like this;

5 + RR(10, 25)

Thank you!

Is it possible to plot a function like RR(10, X)?

Is that a hint? Seems like it might be but I'm having trouble connecting the dots...

As far as I can tell, and this is by no means the final word as I'm a beginner at Casio Basic programming, it doesn't look like you can.

You can create and run programs directly in Linear mode or even store them as functions, but to get that sort of ability to pass variables into functions like that I think that only the Python shell on the CG-50 would have this capability.


In any case, if you want to store a bit of Casio Basic as a function:

1) Switch to Linear mode ShiftMENUF2

2) Here is a rough version of parallel ohms where you enter the resistor values that are in parallel and then enter '0' to return the overall resistance of the parallel circuit (note <> means notequal symbol equivalent).  You can access the programming command menus by pressing ShiftVARS:


0->B:Lbl 1:?->A:While A<>0:B+A-1->B:Goto 1:WhileEnd:B-1


3) To store this sequence of commands as a function OPTNF6F6F3 to access the function menu, then press F1 and pick a function memory to store this.



As an alternative you can call programs from within Linear mode using the Prog command.  Let us say that you have a program that you have saved called OHMS, if you want to run this program, you want to type out:

Prog "OHMS"


To do this:

1) Choose the programming command menu again ShiftVARS.

2) Pick the control menu and then pick Prog from this ( F2F1 ).

3) You need quotes to access a stored program, so use AlphaF2 to pick ".

4) Type in the name of the program and then end the name with another ".
