Is there a place where we can collect any errors found while reading the new manual? Here are some:
P.20: Note: Decimal digits from the mantissa that spill into the exponent field will disappear from the display when you press ", but will be retained internally.
The stray quotation marks are the problem.
P.35: 12.9 [+] 22.2481 Oops! The wrong divisor.
The plus symbol should be the division symbol.
Page 62: If the calculator is turned off, Continuous Memory will be preserved for a short period while the batteries are removed. Data and programs are preserved longer than other aspects of calculator status. Refer to appendix F for instructions on changing batteries.
I doubt these facts are true. If you remove both batteries the memory will be cleared. There is no technical reason why the status and data should have a different retention behavior. This was the case when data memory and status were stored in different physical chips on the original hardware but on the Atmel its all in one chip.
Edit: Added page 62.
