Re: RPN as a language? - Mike Sebastian - 08-26-2002

Here is a link to the calculator forensics page, http://forensics.calcinfo.com/, which has a discussion about the algorithm and results tables for numerous calculators.

A few weeks ago, I was looking at Chinese calculator manufacturer web sites, and stumbled across who I believe is the manufacturer of the HP6S. I believe it is Karce (http://www.karce.com/). Here are their product pages for two calculators that, except for some color differences, look suspiciously like the HP6S Solar and HP6S.

I don't think these are in Mr. Sebastian's tables:

Sharp EL-5100S: 8.999981534

HP-32S: 8.99999864267

HP-42S: 8.99999864267

My all bugs red dot 35 gives me a quite discomforting 0.0174524064...

Another result for your table, Mr. Sebastian.

massimo; you think that your hp 35's answer is disconcerting? a casio fx101 from the 70's gives 9.785883 as it's final answer! it is exactly equal to an hp 32 at tan, starts to diverge by arctan and goes way out from there. what i want to know is: why does it's manual begin with "congratulations on your purchase of this highly advanced scientific calculator...." - d

Well, 0.0174524064 is the final answer on this calculator! :)
