Re: 43S News

It boils down to this, IMO: If we allow for slashes in names then we shall separate a name and a slash by a blank; if we don't want to do this, we can't allow slashes in names. What do you think? I can think of only one alternative, which may not be good at all but here it is: Some way to indicate ...

Re: 43S News

I'll be certainly not easily convinced by inconsistencies. Why should we adopt them? If this question is to me, I am not voting for inconsistencies. AFAIC, operators should be consistently treated as operators, and not allowed in variable names which would introduce ambiguity. That's all, and I'll ...

Re: 43S News

In a program I may want to have a variable named "PI÷4" to store the numerical value if it’s used many times in my program, I wouldn't. Firstly, it is not a valid name in the programming languages I use, so maybe it's just my conditioning. Secondly, I wouldn't want a name which I could mi...

Re: 43S News

I just verified the following on Plus42: It’s possible to create a variable named "PI÷4", "÷" being the division operator. In an equation "PI÷4" is interpreted as PI divided by 4 and not as the variable "PI÷4" So it seems that in equations the operator symbol...

Re: 43S News

Ah, and about the /: as long as we allow it in a name like df/dt we have to give the 43S a chance to differentiate this from df / dt . FWIW, I don't think I'll ever name my variables df or dt, nor anything else which is obviously a reserved word or symbol. And I fully expect a machine to behave wei...

While I have no problem remembering what I can remember, I struggle remembering what I don't. This won't be my only calculator either, I'm still going to be keeping and using my other ones. Just because.

Re: 43S News

To be correct, that should rather be X ENTER ENTER 3 - * 7 + No, the second ENTER is not necessary. X is a value in x registre. So with the first ENTER you push it in y registre.

Re: WP 43S Pilot Run (Poll!)

It is not on Amazon US right now it seems... Even if it were I would not order it there. You can easily place your order directly on swissmicros.com and avoid feeding a monopolist. This forum is full of reports about quick and smooth shipping from Switzerland to the USA. I totally second that. I've...
