WP34S nested error


hi to all,

I've tried on the WP34S emulator (22.1990) to find the minimum of a function using the built-in f'(x) command and solving it for zero:

my function f(x) that I want to study, result returned in X stack

f'(x) LBL A

but when I solve for B I receive the message :
Nested use of solve (SLV and SLVQ), integrate, sum or product is not allowed.

Could I do this in this way or I must write a routine that
calculate the derivate and then use solve on it?




Version 2 firmware does not permit solve, integrate, f', f", sum or product to nest or call any of them others. This stems from a limitation on the number of reserved internal registers.

There are two obvious solutions here.

Code f' or solve yourself and use the built in version of the other (hint: look in the library directory on subversion for outline code for these or grab versions from the library here on the Museum).

The alternative would be to upgrade to version 3 which removes this restriction entirely. In version 3 firmware, you can freely nest and mix these functions subject to having enough available RAM.

Thank you very much Pauli I'll wait 3.0 release.



You can get V3 from sourceforge SVN right now! :-)


We are preparing a release. Stay tuned! Walter is reworking the manual and Pauli and I are fixing bugs and inconsistencies. The cross platform emulator by Pascal is in the stage of being deployed soon, too.

Edited for correct grammar.
