compiled local variable



#7

Hello all!

I would like to write a HP-50g program containing a compiled local variable.

Problem is: I do not know how to type that small left arrow which precedes the variable's name using the calculator's keyboard.

Help would be appreciated.

Greetings, Helmut

Hi;

when you are keying in your program, press [right-shift][EVAL] and all existing characters will be shown in the display (scroll it down and up, if needed). This is a way to key any character in. Choose it (cursor keys) and press [ECHO].

Cheers.

Thank you very much!

If you use it a lot, as I do, you might want to assign it as a one-character string to a user key.

It's right-shift 0 (zero)

Hi, David;

the right-arrow you get with the [right-shift][0] is not the same one you need for compiled local variables. The one that works here is the left-arrow, not available as a regular ALPHA character. Either you assign it to a key in the ALPHA keyboard (as Kiyoshi correctly suggested) or you use the CHARS menu.

I first read about compiled local variables (I do not remember reading about them in original HP manuals) at James Donnely´s "The HP48 Handbook" (2nd. Ed, p. 46). I consider this one a 'must read'. I also do not know if Willian Wickes tells about them in his "HP48 Insights", third volume (HP48G) because I did not read it (yet).

Hope this helps.

Cheers.
