Well, of course I forgot to look at lunch time yesterday..and this morning! But I called home, and my wife was good enough to look at the book for me. It is:
Programming Programmable Calculators
by Harold S. Engelsohn
The chapters are (approximately):
(1) Introduction to computing
(2) Developing simple algorithms and programs
(3) Branches, loops, and decisions
(4) T-register and special functions (SR-56, TI-57,58,59)
(5) Programming flags and "if" decisions (SR-52)
(6) Subroutines and advanced programming
(7) Indirect addressing (SR-52, TI-58/59)
The back cover states that the book covers the SR-55, the SR-56, the "brand-new" TI-57, the TI-58/59, the Commodore PR100, and the APF Programmable Model. It also mentions that it touches on the TI PC-100 and PC-100A printers.
As I remember it, the book was _very_ basic, and was just a hand-holding alternative to reading the manual! ;-) I don't think it mentioned any HP calculators at all. Probably a book only useful as memorabilia or a collection of old programmable-calc books.
Hope that helps.
