I noticed in the principal features on the HPCC site that the HP49G series calculators are programmable in HP Basic.

If you call code like this "HP BASIC": FOR(i,1,100)then, yes. Else, no.
There are, however, very good emulators available for the 48/49 series that can provide the goods. For instance, HP71X by Hrastprogrammer does perfectly emulate an HP71B, and this allows you to program in HP71B BASIC, which is an advanced version of the usual 'technical' BASIC dialect found in larger, vintage HP computers of old, such as the HP85, HP86/87, or HP75, say. 10 DESTROY ALL @ OPTION BASE 1 @ INPUT "#Points, Degree=";N,Dwhich, by the way, is a little program I wrote to compute the coefficients of the Nthdegree least squares polynomial regression to an arbitrary set of datapoints (X,Y). Thus, by using HP71X you can develop/run similar code in this powerful version of HP Technical BASIC on your 48/49.

Yes but it is a special "hp basic" for the 38, 39, 40 and 49 calculators. It only works in algebraic mode. Arnaud

As for as I've been able to determine, "HP Basic" means using the 49 series in ALG mode, and if you want to do that, why buy a 49 series in the first place? I doubt that there's much resemblence to "BASIC", as in "Beginner's Allpurpose Symbolic Instruction Code".

Chris: if you want to program your 49+, I heartily recommend you program it in RPL style. And of you can use FOR...NEXT loops and such within an RPL program. There are several good tutorials on RPL programming available for free download from www.hpcalc.org  best of luck. ▼

Thank you all very much for your interesting and informative responses. I think I will enter the world of RPL programming! I have tried it before but I did not get on with it. A good tutorial as suggested could provide the solution. I have downloaded 'Programming in User RPL' by Eduando M Kalinowski which seems to provide a tutorial plus exercises with answers.
