200LX Desktop Emulator - Teaching an old horse ...
It's astounding which solutions become possible with the HP Desktop software Version 1.02.

The core of a solution to create a paper trail of results of solver equations - and further iterations in conjunction with Ubuntu 14.04 - is the (clever) combination of readily available commands to read an process the 'tcalc_xxx.prt' files created by consecutive ALT-->FILE->PRINT->DATA:

Code:
        diff --suppress-common-lines -w -b -y -W 200 $CAPTURE/tcalc_"$i".prt $CAPTURE/tcalc_"$j".prt | cut -b110-146 | sed 's/^ *//g' | awk '{printf ("%s\n", $0) }'| awk 'BEGIN{FS="=";} {printf("%s = %16s\n",$1, \$2)}

Which produces the sample output:

Code:
Die nachfolgenden Iterationen dokumentieren alle Eingaben und Änderungen, die das jeweilige Ergebnis beeinflussen. Unveränderte Werte sind den  vorhergehenden Iterationen zu entnehmen. Anfängliche Berechnung #YRS  =            20.00 NOM%  =             6.00 PV    =       -10 000.00 PMT   =          -100.00 FV    =        77 648.70 #P    =            12.00 #C    =             1.00 Iteration 1 - Angezeigt werden nur geänderte Werte! FV    =        77 427.99 T     =            30.00 Iteration 2 - Angezeigt werden nur geänderte Werte! PMT   =          -300.00 FV    =        77 207.28 T     =            90.00 #P    =             4.00

The final output sample is in German (I've added a dictionary and a translation step), but I think you'll get the picture.

Best regards
