Re: SHOW on HP35S and others Message #4 Posted by Karl Schneider on 30 July 2007, 11:58 a.m., in response to message #1 by dietmar13

No. SHOW displays the 12 digits of the mantissa, which start with the first nonzero digit  not 12 decimal digits. Unless something is different about the HP35s from the HP32SII and HP33s, 123.345675346246 can't be entered.
As for the decimal point, it seems that there was a simple rule for all midgrade Pioneer models: SHOW will display the decimal point if possible; that is, if the mantissa is of a magnitude such that the actual value can be displayed without an exponent.
Highend Pioneer models can show the full 12digit mantissa and exponent, so do not need to omit the decimal point with SHOW.
Spiceseries, Voyagerseries, and lowend Pioneers with their 7segment LCD's do not show the decimal point with, respectively, MANT, CLEAR PREFIX, or SHOW.
The HP41 didn't have the mantissadisplaying function.
