Value of Entry in CAS - Angus - 02-27-2015 06:02 AM


In home you can check your entry mode by system variable 'Entry'. Sometimes it is important for a program, to know what mode you are running the calculator in. (think of usr keyboard routines)

However when the device is set to cas, Entry still returns the value from home. That means if I run RPN in home I still get Entry==2 in CAS although Entry was implicitly changed when leavnig HOME.

Is there at least a way to find out if you are in HOME or in CAS? Or is there an other way that results in a non-rpn entry during cas use?
