50g and programs.
Message #1 Posted by Mark Sim. on 2 May 2008, 9:25 a.m.

I have been in the search for a new calculator and I have, as many before me, come across the the point as to go with the 50g or the 89.

I have handled the 89 a few times in the past and have not been impressed. However I have not physically seen a 50g.

My friend has a 50g, however I haven't been able to go and see it. He highly suggests it.

What I want to know, is if it can read mfiles from MatLab. Or if I would have to make my own programs with another language. I know my friend told me that the 50g can read C++, but he's unsure about mfiles.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks Mark

No, the 50g cannot read MatLab programs (M-files). You will have to port your M-files to RPL or C to run on the 50g.

Yes, you cross compile C and C++ programs for the 50g. Read and
