Does anyone know where I can get a pdf of the HP 19BII manual?

Hi, Kevin;

some time ago (long...) I downloaded the available HP19BII manuals at the HP site for calculators. At that time, only Portuguese and Spanish versions were available to download, and I still have both of them. The problem is that both are pdf docs generated from scanned images, so they are somehow big: the Portuguese version is about 9MBytes long and the Spanish version is about 24MBytes long (yeap, no missing dot...). I am almost sure they can still be downloaded from the HP site, but I cannot find the link I had for them. I tried a search but did not find anything.

Another fact: the HP17BII+ manual (currently available) points out many financial ressources that are common for both models, so you can use many of the HP19BII features by reading the HP17BII+ manual, instead. What I remember by heart:

the HP17BII+ has no graphics capabilities;
the HP17BII+ has no trigonometrics and no angle mode;
the HP17BII+ has no currency conversion feature;
access to ALPHA characters is different in both models.

There are others, but these I guess are the main issues.The link below points to the HP17BII+ english manual:

Hope this helps a bit.
