35s Polar to rectangular programming - Craig Ormandy - 09-23-2007
Hi All Quote:and in particular the asterix symbol (*) in a number of the lines. Could someone maybe explain to me how this is inputed and what it means? Is it a multiply symbol or something else and what does it mean after the likes of R012? Also how is it inputed in the equation part of R006 for example? From reading through and my very basic knowledge it is steps missed out by the programme if other parts are carrying out by the prior lines? However I could be totally wrong... Also is there a difference between EQN and eqn (lines R006 and R010)? And does the text after the eqn word need to be typed in as I am sure I read somewhere that it is not needed but am also sure it would be or how is the line executed? After reading my message my questions do sound rather silly and probably very basic to the majority of you but if someone could help me out I would be most grateful.

Quote: This means that that line is the target of a branch. You don't input it.
Quote: In equations it is a multiplication sign. After the line number it is ignored.
Quote: Nope, both are algebraic equations.
Quote: Yes it needs to be typed in. All apart from the "eqn " or "EQN ". These expressions evalulate and the result is pushed onto the RPN stack.

Quote:Just to clarify (in case it is not obvious), it does not have to be typed in letter by letter. If you need LASTx in an equation, just press blue-shift ENTER, if you need the SIN function, just press SIN, etc. The REGT, REGZ etc. functions are entered by pressing the Roll-down key, selecting the stack register you want with the left-right cursor keys, then pressing ENTER. |
