What key for "R^" in a program HP-41CV



#5

I found a HP-41CV program on the net and in a line i need to enter "R^", Which key should i press for that result?


#6

RTFM is the usual advice in these situations. What you are asking is covered within the first couple of chapters.


#7

Sorry, i'm new to HP and i'm trying to learn it; i'm use to TI since 25 years and mu encounter with an HP is a week old... without a manual... :-)

Well, even if present manuals are the last thing to refer to when a problem arises, I need to say that the prior 1986 HP manuals arere examples of their kind many manufacturers should refer to. There were a lot of examples and labs, and allways with the same touch of humor that I appreciate a lot. Everybody remembers lovesick sailor who by chance had a 41C in his bag, don't you ?

BTW, the R^function could also be accessed y... 3 times RDN :-)

Lovesick sailor Oscar Odysseus first had an HP25!

Probably is referring to "roll up". That is, roll the stack up. To access this function, you'll have to do a:
XEQ ALPHA R shift N.

Thanks! That was it... My program run now!!!

The HP41 has many more functions than keys, so there's not always a key to press to enter a function. What you do in that case is press <XEQ> then <alpha>, then type in the name of the function, then press <alpha> again. This
works both in 'run' mode (to execute a function not on the keyboard) and in program mode (to enter the function a a program line).
So in your case, press <XEQ> <alpha> R ^ <alpha> (where ^ is typed as <shift> <enter> -- there's a label on the back giving the shifted alpha characters).
Oh yes <xxx> means press the key with 'xxx' on it.
I would recomend trying to get the user manual, though. It's got a lot of good information in it. Another good book is 'Extend your HP41' by Wlodek Mier-J. That's probably the most useful 3rd party book for general users -- it covers everything from turning the machine on to
synthetic programming. I use my copy all the time.


#13

If there is some function that you use a lot, you can assign that function to just about any key on the keyboard using the ASN key. This can save a lot of typing of those alpha function names.


#14

All the standard functions are listed in one of the "Catalogs" that is available for viewing by pressing "f" ENTER, I think. Whenever I cannot remember the abbreviation for a function, I refer to the catalog first.
