Thanks for the link, Gene.

I read Palmer Hanson's interesting article on algebraic, with its comparison and contrast to RPN. He made the point at the end of the article:

Quote:

Here's a possible solution for calculators which offer both RPN and algebraic: RPNers frequently use RollDown and x<>y. Algebraic users rarely, if ever, do. Why not share the RollDown function with the left parenthesis function and the x<>y function with the right parenthesis function with the software deciding which option to use depending on which mode the calculator is in.

I actually think HP has gone in the right direction with having already done this on both the 20b and 30b.
