RE: Existing CAS commands --> Prime discussion - compsystems - 11-08-2019 12:57 AM increment(a,1) stores the result of a: = a+1 the problem is that the hpprime does not update the history view engine, the xCAS evolves but when the CAS is updated within the firmware it is necessary to update the expression interpreter, otherwise not It will work many things.

In Home Settings, page 2 (not page 1), turn ON "Textbook Display". Now in CAS type: a:=5 a+=1 You'll see that your a+=1 gets displayed as increment(a,1) ... but if you turn Textbook Display mode OFF, it's displayed as a:=a+1 However, typing increment() on the command line does not work; it's not recognized, like typing foobar() or any other nonexistent command. RE: Existing CAS commands --> Prime discussion - Eddie W. Shore - 11-09-2019 03:28 PM Testing the four "crement" commands in programming: Code: ```EXPORT TEST7788() BEGIN // CREMENT TEST // EWS 2019-11-07 LOCAL a:=100; LOCAL b:=5; PRINT(); CAS.increment(a,b); PRINT("+  "+a); CAS.decrement(a,b); PRINT("-  "+a); CAS.mulcrement(a,b); PRINT("*  "+a); CAS.divcrement(a,b); PRINT("/  "+a); PRINT("-------"); a:=CAS.increment(a,b); PRINT("+  "+a); a:=CAS.decrement(a,b); PRINT("-  "+a); a:=CAS.mulcrement(a,b); PRINT("*  "+a); a:=CAS.divcrement(a,b); PRINT("/  "+a); END;``` The results may show why these four commands are not in the catalog: Code: ``` +  100 -  100 *  100 /  100 ------- +  increment(100,5) -  decrement(increment(100,5),5) *  mulcrement(decrement(increment(100,5),5),5) /  divcrement(mulcrement(decrement(increment(100,5),5),5),5)``` RE: Existing CAS commands --> Prime discussion - compsystems - 11-09-2019 03:51 PM Hello If you write on the entry line a: = 15; a + = 1; [enter] is shown in the history view [a: = 15, increment(a, 1)] [15,16] where a+=1 is interpreted as increment (a, 1) but the entry line of this sentence is not interpreted. increment(a, 1) [enter] increment(a, 1)? expected 17 A command that is not in the catalog does not imply that the command internally is not within the functions of the Xcas source code, they may not make it visible yet, like many that I have reported and have ignored. For example bool( 1 ); [enter] true bool( 0 ); [enter] false bool( -1 ); [enter] true
