Hi,
Sometimes I see this : " (BP 67/97)".
I wonder what it means. Surely a book for good programing ? But how to get this book ? May be it is " Basic Programming" ?

I have searched every where but I dont' find.

Is someone know and give me help ?

Hey Gerard
i found an old cached (stored) web link here

http://webcache.googleusercontent.com/se...=1&vwsrc=0

which mentions BPs (breakpoints) under the heading
Advanced Techniques for RPN-67 & RPN-97
it isn't a short post so i wont cut & paste the article.

[here is a little bit of the post]

Advanced Techniques for RPN-67 and RPN-97
Breakpoints
On the original calculators, forcing program execution to stop at a certain step – often referred to as "setting a breakpoint" – required inserting an R/S instruction at that step. This was cumbersome, as it not only changed the step numbers in the program, but you also had to remember the locations of the breakpoints in order to remove them later.
RPN-97 solves this by attaching breakpoint information to steps without modifying the user's program in any way.
Up to 10 breakpoints may be simultaneously defined. Optionally, a counter may be specified for each breakpoint, causing it to fire only when the breakpoint step has been encountered a certain number of times (up to 999).

Probably "Better Programming on the HP 67/97".

This was a "booklet" published by PPC containing all sorts of tips to program better on those machines.

It is available on the PPC DVD set by Jake Schwartz: PPC DVD
Many thanks, I am going to search.
Unfortunetly I dont' find in my HP cd rom Version 6.

May be in a newer Version ?

Good evening.
I do not think it is on the Museum DVD set but on the DVD from the efforts of Jake Schwartz who scanned all the PPC Journal issues.
