USA - One nation divided by a common language. Have you been to the deep South?

According to the Texan Dictionary of the English Language of 196x: "Have yawl been to the deep South?" ;)

I’ve seen that a new help file has been published on December 19 with a fix for [∑REG] and [∑RG?].

I’m wondering if this is the right topic for comments, or if a dedicated topic would be better (I’m not sure Scotland or Texas related discussions as interesting as they are, can improve the help content) … anyway, here they are:
  • In addition to ÷ and × the calculator's glyphs for the ▲ and ▼ character codes are also transposed throughout the Help browser.
  • In the DM42 Functions list:
    • BASE* should be BASE×
    • BASE/ should be BASE÷
    • ClALL should be CLALL
    • ClΣ should be CLΣ
    • RCLX should be RCL×
    • RCL+ should be RCL÷ for Recall divide
  • In Setup Menu → File under Activate USB Disk:
    • Perpare should be Prepare
  • Maybe be it would good also to add in the help the hidden matrix functions [MIN], [MAX] and [FIND].
