I think the 43S language is sufficiently different from a 41's use that FOCAL should not be used, however the term F3CAL is interesting.

A potential downside though is the 3 is too easily mistaken for an E and that has undesired implications, so maybe not great after all.

But I think Walter's idea of naming the 43's programming language is a good idea, it makes it much easier to refer to it, especially when discussing and comparing the 43S to other machines.

Keep suggestions coming please.

Triggered by a discussion elsewhere: Should we call the programming language of the 43S "FOCAL"? This name was introduced for the keystroke programming language of the HP-41C, so it certainly applies to the one of the HP-42S, so ...

What do you think?
I'm an old DEC programmer and FOCAL has an entirely different meaning for me.

What about FOCAL43 ?

Or FTCAL ?

FACAL: for Forty-Any CAlculator Language.

Good for 41, 42, 43...

Well, remember that 48 is one of the Forty-Any, and I know you would regret applying an RPN-inspired name to the KIng of RPL machines. I suppose you could go for FABECAL: Forty-Any But Eight CAlculator Language, but the 49 ruins that, and FABEONCAL seems inelegant as well... :)

Forty-Three Keystroke Programming - FTKP ?

Forty-Three Keystroke Programming - FTKP ?
They were never as good to have an own series number, until the 50g.
However I only was worried by 45 and 46. But since they weren't programmable...

What about simply FORTY?
And its variants: FORTY-I, FORTY-II, FORTY-III...

I quite like that one. Tongue in the cheek. Straight to the point(s). Compact. TLA. Would not mind that one.

SKPL: Superiour keystroke programming language.

Sounds kind of like skittle but is pronounced skiple.
