Hi;

all HP48 related RPL/RPN material will fit fine, if you don't mind searching for hidden keys and menus. As a regular HP product, at least for now, there is none. Anyway, there is a two-volume book named Science and Engineering Mathematics with the HP 49 G, by Gilberto Urroz (try www.greatunpublished.com, bookstore, search). I am waitting for mine and I bought them because they were very well recommended by contributors in here. In time: I cannot tell you this publication covers RPN/RPL specific matters, but it seems to have a lot of good material.

If you wanna try...

Success.

What about the HP 49G Advanced User's Guide and other manuals which can be downloaded from hpcalc.org?

Hi;

I have not found yet a better source of RPL-related material that would fit in the HP49G's RPL structure than the ones written for the HP48G series. I downloaded and printed the Advanced User's Manual and it was not THAT much helpfull; indeed, it has a lot of info about using an HP49G in algebraic mode, and some reference to its use in RPL/RPN fashion.

Is there anything else that can be downloaded? I do not know anything about them. Would you help me, too? Just a hint of some titles, so I can have and indicate them.

Thank you and best regards.

I just got my 49G a month ago, so I'm not an expert. I have the 48 manuals and I will take your advice. I agree the 49G AUR continues the regular user's guide emphasis on algebraic mode.

I downloaded a file from hpcalc.org called "20 Essential Things to Know About the HP-49G: A guide for the hopelessly confused!" (http://www.hpcalc.org/details.php?id=4910). It is a little out of date - it says you can download the HP49G AUR from hp.com, which you can't, although you can get it from hpcalc.org. It lists a number of books including the one by Urroz that you named, also several books by Eduardo M. Kalinowski that can be downloaded: 48G UserRPL and SysRPL that apply to HP49G, and 49G SysRPL. In addition it lists several websites including one which has a CAS manual which you can download. I also downloaded a pocket guide fom hpcalc.org (I didn't get one with my unit).

Also, hpcalc.org has an FAQ, a number of lists of commands and such by Joe Horn, and a number of ROM images including 1.19-6 which seem to be the recommended best one to use, although as far as I can tell, you can't get it from hp.com because it is not released.

I'll add that the newsgroup comp.sys.hp48 is a good place to add questions about the 28 series, 48 series, 38G, 39G, 40G, and 49G. You can search the newsgroup archives at http://groups.google.com/advanced_group_search?as_ugroup=comp.sys.hp48 or just browse at http://groups.google.com/groups?q=comp.sys.hp48. Google isn't up-to-the-minute with its updates, so to participate it would be better to use some other method, such as http://www.mailgate.org or the newsreader.mailgate.org server with your own newsreader.

Not that there's anything wrong with this forum; but the museum is mostly for out-of-production models.

Regards,
James

                                    
Thank you, both.

Hi;

thank you, Ellis and James; good source of reference.

Sometimes we do not find the time to delve into some sites and find what you have found.

This is golden info. Thanks for sharing.

Cheers.
