Section 4: Programming 278

Programming Is a Creative Process

As you may have observed, programming the HP-65 is surprisingly easy to learn. Once you learn the operations, and follow the few rules, a whole world of possibilities is open to you. We have purposely presented the calculator with minimal use of formulas in case some of your mathematical training has dimmed by lack of use. You can adapt what you have learned here to your own purposes. In case you write a program that exceeds memory, remember that most programs can be shortened upon reexamination. Impromptu programs prepared for special purposes are usually faster to program and debug. Larger general programs can take considerable persistence. Good luck!
