Steps 277 through 399 are optional and can be deleted if necessary (in this case change line 268 to GTO 000).

12C_Platinum_Trigs.zip: Same as the US (THEM?:-) version, except that DECIMAL POINT IS COMMA.
How do these trig functions compare to Valentin Albillo's?

Fast and Accurate Trigonometric Functions on the HP-12C Platinum

- The stack register Y is preserved;

- Wider input range while keeping the same accuracy (SIN, COS, TAN: |x| < 1E12 degrees);

- All functions are computed independently;

- Mostly fixed execution times regardless of the arguments;

- More accurate results (mainly because the HP 12c Platinum doesn't round intermediate results to 10 digits);

- Faster method (Minimax polynomial rather than Taylor series);

- At least 276 steps long, plus 15 registers;

- It works on the HP 12c Platinum only.

Valentin was limited to only 99 steps however, so his achievement is quite remarkable. I wonder what he could have done with four times more programming steps! (He would never need that much, in the first place).

Thanks! Just the degrees mode could be a crucial advantage.
