|Programming the 39GII|

I like this calculator especially because its good screen, good keys an easy programming.
My experience so far:
EDITLIST(list) does not work. This instruction is described in the manual, but it is not in
the programming templates menu (push SHIFT Cmds, then I/O). When you use it in a program it
gives an error. EDITMAT works however.
WAIT(seconds)is not described in the manual, but it works. WAIT(0) does not wait for a
keypress but waits 0 seconds. I regret that.
With graphic instructions when you use the _P option, then integers are expected. Using
reals as coordinates gives an error.
RECT_P with color codes remembers the last used colors. So 0,0 is not default. When you
used 3,3 last time then 3,3 becomes default.
The strange behaviour of the 10^x key is a serious bug (posted by Bunuel66 on 10 Aug). When
calculating with decibels you need this function all the time. So when your work (or study)
involves electronics or acoustics you cannot use the 39GII as a plain calculator.
