fx-CG50 Prism
Would like to create some code that Prompts for Input Entries.

"<prompt>" ? -> <Variable Name> (page 308, (8-12) of the Software manual)

                     __

I cannot find a functional arrow key.
The printed arrow key, just above "AC/on" does not function. 

Just trying to write some code that prompts the user to enter the known varuables.


Where is this key

Apparently, the (Right) Arrow key functions beneath "Programming" NOT within Python.

Hi iqak, 

 

Don't take me seriously but, if your arrow key is damaged, then you could get the arrow key by:

 

I'm not sure how it works on cg-50 however you could

 

1. connect your calculator to pc,

2. get into <PROGRAM> folder

3. create a .g3m file (example.g3m)

4. write it (the program or that arrow character)

5. save it.

6. disconnect it

7. open that program/file on your calc editor

8. press Shift 8 (clip) select that arrow symbol and press copy F1

9. paste it for later uses 9

 

this should work, but the problem is... where do prism users write their programs on pc?

If it was monochrome series then you would get it from FA-124 program editor on top bar options.

I think there was some fan-made casiobasic IDE on planet-casio...

 

I believe my solution is over-complicated and a bad one.

 

Regards,

 

Nooblette

Here are some solutions:
A: download a program from the internet (most should use variable assignment
B: write a program containing an identifiable sequence of letters (like "Hello World!"), then connect the prizm to your PC, open a hex editor, open <your calc>/@MainMem/PROGRAMS/<your program>.g3m, find your sequence of letters and replace one with the hex 0x0E (it's a "->" on your calculator) and unmount your calculator
C: Or simply write "->" into a file TEST.txt on your computer, connect your calculator and put that file into <your calc>/@MainMem/PROGRAMS/TEST.txt
D: Download C.Basic https://community.ca...e/?fromsearch=1 (it's much better than Casio Basic, has more feat
res, it's much faster,...), it has an integrated txt to g3m converter. So you can write "->" into a text file and convert it using C.Basic. Also in C.Basic you can select the right arrow in the char table (F6).
F: Ask the company where you bought your calc to send you a new one.

Apparently, the (Right) Arrow key functions beneath "Programming" NOT within Python.

Did you mean they key isn't broken, you just wanted to make a prompt in python?
In python it's like on your computer. Just write
variable = input("prompt")
