Re: MicroPython on Casio fx-CG50 Questions?

Another fan of HP calcs. My first was an HP-45 in the early 70s. It was operational until 1990. By then I had a 48SX and a GX. I still have and use them. These days I have a new version 35 and a 50G on my desk. Sometimes it is easier to pick up a calc then fiddle with the computer. I have the i41CX ...

Re: MicroPython on Casio fx-CG50 Questions?

How interesting that so many MicroPython-people are also HP and RPN fans ;) Decades of HP48GX user here, which unfortunately, does not work anymore. I got an HP49G recently from a colleague.... However, I don't use it nearly as frequently as before, as my smartphone runs an HP48GX emulator and the P...

How does Micropython avoid double precision issues?

... old IEEE754 floats. - How does Micropython avoid these kinds of double precision issues? - Is there an operation where a BCD system (used by TI/casio calculators) would return a different answer from Micropython?

Re: MicroPython on Casio fx-CG50 Questions?

+1 for HP and RPN. HP35s here. I started out with a (hugely expensive) HP35 c1973 and I seem to have come full circle ;)

Although mostly if I'm on my PC I fire up MicroPython...

Re: MicroPython on Casio fx-CG50 Questions?

I can see the fun factor of running micropython on a calculator, but can't see a real use of programming on the calculator. That's true. And if you are up for a small device, a smart phone with Python is more capable. But still I'm using my small calculators. Single purpose, always ready to use. Es...

Re: MicroPython on Casio fx-CG50 Questions?

Just to make it even more OT: There is droid48 on Android to completely emulate an HP48G.... I can see the fun factor of running micropython on a calculator, but can't see a real use of programming on the calculator. It might have it's case when you have to repeatedly rerun the same calculus, over a...

Re: MicroPython on Casio fx-CG50 Questions?

There is a wonderful Android (and Linux, Windows, even Mac) app called free42, which emulates the HP42 with it's 32 digit precision, and there is the HP42 re-build called DM42 from swiss micros. I had an HP42 once, but the keypad broke.

That does look interesting, the price is reasonable too. I only use RPN after owning a HP41C many years ago. Today I use an Android app.
