Could you tell us where to get the Japanese PDF? It would be good to have a copy of the original manual as I learn Japanese.

Whilst looking for that manual (above - couldn’t find it right now) I found these pages which should be of interest to ‘850 owners:

Known bug in Basic: LCOPY

One to add to the book perhaps to page 205 where LCOPY is explained.

It's not a statement/something you'd normally have in a program, but you can ... and it does crash the system completely, you'll need a hard reset to get out of this one.

Moral of the bug is: don't add it to a program line Big Grin

RE: Sharp PC-G850VS
I'm interested in learning more about the Turbo mode that has been mentioned here. I've done some searching to see how to accomplish this, but so far I haven't found anything, perhaps because my searches have been in English.

I've been playing around with my PC-G850VS, thanks to Jack's excellent manual, and it's been a lot of fun. In a way, it feels like this device was designed for the purposes of education, with the simplified way that only one compiled C program can be held in memory, the implementation of the CASL/COMET system, etc. Does anyone know more about the target demographic for this device?

You need to replace the 8 MHz resonator to a higher value. To have no complications with data transfer, it would be practical to use 16 or 32 MHz and setting the baud rate to the half or quarter.
