TI-59 RPN Simulator Module



#4

Hi there,
I bought one on ebay and would like to try it.
But there's no user's manual.
Who can help me?
Thansk for assistance.

Module #13, RPN Simulator. Although I have one, I have never used it. This module was a very strange one for TI to make. Apparently, they were getting tired of people claiming HP's were better calculators so TI decided to make this module as its answer to HP and RPN. (Or they may have realized that there was a lot of software programs out there for HP's and wanted to give their users access to it). It's an entire module with one executable program on it. You run the program and key in HP-97 program KEY CODES. You could take a printed program listing for the HP-97 (this would NOT work for HP-67 key codes, only the HP-97) and key in the program steps keycode by keycode. When finished, the program would go off and compute and eventually (and this took a while) print out a TI-59 equivalent program. This then had to be KEYED back into the TI-59 to run. The usefulness of this module is somewhat suspect. First, only keycodes from a HP-97 listing can be used. Second, not all instructions from the HP-97 can be interpreted or emulated by this module. The manual (woefully concise) provides a list of these functions. Also, the resulting program often doesn't run very well at all speedwise. TI did give a very good effort, however. Their timing was terrible, as this module came out only a few months before HP introduced their HP-41. This module did NOT work except to translate programs.

Thanks, Gene. I yet read that.
In fact there's some 65 programs in the ROM!
I need a copy of, a scan of, or an original user's manual to test and taste it.
Thanks again for assistance. Kind regards from Evreux.
