What calculator does??
I agree, you'll have to write the program yourself. And just start with the manual just to get your feet wet; then try to obtain a copy of the HP 48G Advanced User's Reference guide. It should be still available in book form from Calcpro.com for about thirty bucks or so.
I believe also it's available on Eric Reichlin's HP48 site in the download section electronically as a .pdf file.
This manual is very worthwhile. I was able to use it to get myself to a point at which I can begin to believe I can program almost anything, given reasonable time and maybe a few days more, on a HP-48G series or 49G series machine, which does include the HP-50g. One caveat: I did learn to program back in high school and college, even if that was back just shortly after stone tablets got obsolete, HP programmable scientific calculators and a "real" computer language.
But if as you say you don't know how to program, then I would strongly recommend you start with the 50g manual, then get that AUR I mentioned in this message.
