Actually, on the 48 (and 49) series, COMB is a function, so 'COMB(10,4)' EVAL will indeed work, as long as the "fraction mark" is at the default of using the period. If the fraction mark is the comma, then use 'COMB(10.4)' EVAL instead. Either way, 'COMB(10;4)' EVAL works.
But Mario, note that the delimiters for an algebraic object are single-quotation marks, not double-quotation marks; "COMB(10,4)" is a character string. I suggest that you spend at least a little time reading the fine manual. Note that for the RPL models, you're likely to get a better response on the comp.sys.hp48 usenet group; see: http://groups.google.com/group/comp.sys.hp48?. Also see: http://www.hpcalc.org/
As an RPN sequence, 10 4 COMB also works.
On the 28S, COMB isn't a function, so the algebraic syntax won't work, and the 28C doesn't have a built-in COMB command.
