HP Prime  How to STO in RPN mode?  Javier Goizueta  08162013 I've just begun playing with the emulator and I can't seem to be able to STOre anything into a variable, I only get to create new variables prefixed by the STO arrow symbol! I guess I'm missing something obvious here...

Re: HP Prime  How to STO in RPN mode?  Eddie W. Shore  08162013 Enter the number or whatever you want to store, press ENTER, call up single quotes, enter your variable name, press ENTER again, and finally execute STO> Example: 2: 8 1: 'A' Stores 8 into A. Keystrokes: number, [ENTER], [Shift] , [ ( ) ] ( '' ), variable, [ENTER], [Shift], [EEX] (Sto>)

Re: HP Prime  How to STO in RPN mode?  C.Ret  08162013 Hi, At first sight, the 'store' procedure of the HP Prime is close to the same procedure on an HP28S. Are you sure that HP Prime isn't emulating RPL mode instead of a regular RPN mode?
Re: HP Prime  How to STO in RPN mode?  Javier Goizueta  08162013 I should have known, being a longtime RPL user. (actually I'd tried, but failed to find the single quotes). Anyway, I found this rather inconvenient in the Prime: the single quotes are shifted, then I need to ENTER before pressing Sto (which is also shifted...) In the RPL calcs it is much easiear, with ' and STO as primary functions, and with the LeftShiftSoftkey shortcut for VAR menus.
I feel this should be improved to make RPL usable, since STOring is such a common operation. Any ideas?
Re: HP Prime  How to STO in RPN mode?  Walter B  08162013 Why RPL at all? RPN would do ...

Re: HP Prime  How to STO in RPN mode?  Carey  08162013 <<"Stores 8 into A.
Seems like a lot of work just to store a number into a variable. Compare to A=8 in most numerical software running on other handheld devices (e.g., phones, tablets) or number, [ENTER], [alpha], variable, [ENTER], STO in HP48gx.
Re: HP Prime  How to STO in RPN mode?  Walter B  08162013 ... or number STO variable in the HP42S.

Re: HP Prime  How to STO in RPN mode?  Javier Goizueta  08162013 Oops, I meant RPN
Re: HP Prime  How to STO in RPN mode?  Gilles Carpentier  08162013 * In algebraic PRIME : number 'softkey STO>' ALPHA A ENTER (4 keystrokes) * On my 50, if the variable exists : LSHIFT SoftMenu ( 2 keystrokes) If the Var don't exist ALPHA A STO (3 keystrokes) * RPN Prime Shift '' ALPHA A > shift STO (7 keystrokes )
I hope this will be improve with the Prime in RPN. 'SoftMenu STO>' could give
'' > (with the cursor between the quotes '' and Alpha locked.

Re: HP Prime  How to STO in RPN mode?  Gilles Carpentier  08162013 "Any idea?" 1/see below about a 'template' idea (value + 3 keystrokes including ENTER). Could [ '¤'> ] softkey (¤ is a square, and > the triangle) 2/ Unshifted '' in the unused softmenu 3/ Unshifted STO in the unused softmenu
But only HP could do this. However, it seems very simple things Edited: 16 Aug 2013, 5:14 p.m.
Re: HP Prime  How to STO in RPN mode?  Xavier A. (Brazil)  08182013 I do agree.
