I was wondering if anyone who has bought the new Platinum 12c has noticed if programming is any different. Specifically, since the original 12c used up all 256 possible combinations for an 8-bit command, and the Platinum has some new keys (x^2, =, ALG, RPN), how are these accomodated? Come to think of it, with GTO 000 to GTO 399 taking up 400 combinations, and an 8 bit command allowing only 256, did they maybe take a new approach and have the GTO command take 2 bytes now?

Has anyone checked this out?

thanks,
