Personally, I think that CAS programs are better suited for CAS exclusive purposes (remaining within the CAS environment). I get that recursive activity is the point of this presentation, but the steps involved are better implemented in a Home program, rather than a CAS variable. The CAS approach, in this case, is a bit like building a pipeline to a beer brewery across town, rather than just using containers to get the desired beer home. Actually, CAS is REQUIRED for calculating Fibonacci numbers with more than 12 digits. CAS supports integers of almost unlimited length. Home is limited to a mere 12 digits. <0ɸ0> Joe
