HP Prime  another cosmetic bug  BruceH  11092013
LN(0) Error:LN(0) Re: HP Prime  another cosmetic bug  Ken Shaw  11112013 Isn't it a certainty that log(x) is computed using a call to ln(x)?
Not sure if the Prime can handle arbitrary bases, but it seems unreasonable to expect a special error message for every possible base.
Re: HP Prime  another cosmetic bug  Michael de Estrada  11112013 It's just that on all other HP calculators it does differentiate between LN and LOG. For example on the HP 50g the error is displayed as "LOG Error: Infinite Result" and on the HP 33s as "LOG(0)" Not the end of the world, but just another of many small oversights on the Prime.
Re: HP Prime  another cosmetic bug  Ken Shaw  11122013 That's interesting, thanks. I wouldn't call it a bug though. If the error is really being thrown by the LN subroutine and being passed to the LOG routine, it would be technically correct. I agree it may be nicer cosmetically for the error to reference the function initiated by the user, but a contarian view would be that it's less informative.
