48S memory Help



#4

So I have a 48S and when I try to Sto or Rcl, it returns error:Too few arguments. I know there is a way to 'activate' the memory, but just cant find anything about it, and don't have a book either.

Any help would be much appreciated! Thanks.

It's a matter of the correct syntax, not memory.

To store an object (number, array, matrix, program string,...) put it on the stack, then put the name in 'quotes' on th stack and hit STO.

You can recall a value from a variable by simply using its name.

Your screen should resemble:

------------------------
4:
3:
2: object to be stored
1: 'NAME'

Then hit the STO button.

thanks guys, I wasn't very clear, sorry.

Actually it is a new (to me) calculator and if I want to store a number in a register, I would think all I need to do is type in the number I want and press STO and then one of the locations to save that number.

That just isn't happening...any thoughts?

Well, it's an RPL model, so it doesn't have numbered registers;
instead it has named variables. Also, various types of "objects"
can be used, a "real number" being just one of them. What's more,
STO and RCL are postfix in RPL, rather than prefix as in "Classic
RPN".

So, to store the real number 12345 in a global variable named
MyVAR, just do 12345 'MyVAR' STO.

Perhaps you should read the fine manuals?

Regards,
James
