Standard Function Names - Anyone?



#2

Is there a standard (or failing that a generally accepted) way of naming the various RPN functions using just alphanumeric characters?

For many of the functions this seems straight forward enough (though I many have abbreviated things too much in places..?)

sin     -> SIN
sin-1 -> ARCSIN
x<>y -> SWAP (I'm assuming that SWAP is the same as X<>Y)
+ -> ADD
- -> SUB
/ -> DIV
etc


However, there is rather more scope for interpretation when you try to express some other functions without using 'special' characters - particularly when things get ambiguous...
->R     -> ???    (Convert to radians)
RAD -> ??? (Select radian mode)
->R -> ??? (Convert polar to rectangular co-ordinates)
R^ -> ??? (Round up)
R -> ??? (Round down)
r -> ??? (Correlation coefficient)
->H.MS -> HMS (?)
X<=Y -> ???
Q -> Q (A bit to short?)
Q-1 -> INVQ (?)
(i) -> ???
I -> ???
X2 -> SQR (?)
/X -> SQRT (?)
10x -> INVLOG (?)
etc etc etc
