WP-34S Programming Question



#2

Hi all,

As I was looking at the "Yet another Normal quantile function for the 34s" thread, I noticed that numeric keystrokes take one step per digit like the old Woodstock, Classic, Spice programming structure. What's the reason the 34S doesn't adopt the 41C, 32SII, etc. programming structure where each numeric value/constant takes one program line?

Short answer: RAM.

Okay. I just thought it was a question of which numeric entry coding was more favourable and essential to implement--the Classic/Voyager/Woostock method of separate keystroke recording or the 41/42/32S II method of each constant taking one program step. Thanks for the very concise answer.
