RE: A program to toggle between prefixes
thank you Dale and Stephen,
I could do something like this code (modifying the program of user cclinus in this post

(this code begin to work like the original "ENG" simulation, that I've modified to handle from E-24 to E24)...
shift-Help / lower "ENG, shift-Help * increase, shift-Help + return the normal number, shift-Help - change "Exx" into prefix...
It's a first attempt...

Code:

// Program to toggle between  ←ENG and ENG→
// define keys / * + (toggle_eng_float)

reeng();

EXPORT ENGA(x)
BEGIN
LOCAL pos,s,i;
IF TYPE(x)==0 THEN
RETURN STRING(x,4,11);
END;

IF (TYPE(x)==2) THEN
  IF (INSTRING(x," ")) THEN x:= reeng(x); END;
END;

IF (TYPE(x)==2) AND (INSTRING(x,"ᴇ24")) THEN
RETURN x;
END;
IF (TYPE(x)==2) AND (INSTRING(x,"ᴇ24")==0) THEN
s:=x;
FOR i FROM 1 TO 3 DO
pos:=INSTRING(s,".");
s(pos):=s(pos-1);
s(pos-1):=".";
IF pos==2 THEN
s:="0"+s;
END;
END;
WHILE INSTRING(s,"0ᴇ") DO
s:=REPLACE(s,"0ᴇ","ᴇ")
END;
//
s:=REPLACE(s,"ᴇ21","ᴇ24");
s:=REPLACE(s,"ᴇ18","ᴇ21");
s:=REPLACE(s,"ᴇ15","ᴇ18");
s:=REPLACE(s,"ᴇ12","ᴇ15");
s:=REPLACE(s,"ᴇ9","ᴇ12");
s:=REPLACE(s,"ᴇ6","ᴇ9");
s:=REPLACE(s,"ᴇ3","ᴇ6");
s:=REPLACE(s,"ᴇ0","ᴇ3");
s:=REPLACE(s,"ᴇ−3","ᴇ0");
s:=REPLACE(s,"ᴇ−6","ᴇ−3");
s:=REPLACE(s,"ᴇ−9","ᴇ−6");
s:=REPLACE(s,"ᴇ−12","ᴇ−9");
s:=REPLACE(s,"ᴇ−15","ᴇ−12");
s:=REPLACE(s,"ᴇ−18","ᴇ−15");
s:=REPLACE(s,"ᴇ−21","ᴇ−18");
s:=REPLACE(s,"ᴇ−24","ᴇ−21");
RETURN s;
END;
END;

EXPORT ENGB(x)
BEGIN
LOCAL pos,s,i;
IF TYPE(x)==0 THEN
RETURN STRING(x,4,11);
END;

IF (TYPE(x)==2) THEN
  IF (INSTRING(x," ")) THEN x:= reeng(x); END;
END;

IF TYPE(x)==2 AND (INSTRING(x,"ᴇ−24"))THEN
RETURN x;
END;
IF TYPE(x)==2 AND (INSTRING(x,"ᴇ−24")==0)THEN
s:=x;
FOR i FROM 1 TO 3 DO
pos:=INSTRING(s,".");
IF s(pos+1)==7431 THEN
s:=REPLACE(s,".ᴇ","0.ᴇ");
ELSE
s(pos):=s(pos+1);
s(pos+1):=".";
IF (pos==2) AND (s(1)==48) THEN
s:=RIGHT(s,DIM(s)-1);
END;
END;
END;
WHILE INSTRING(s,"0ᴇ") DO
s:=REPLACE(s,"0ᴇ","ᴇ")
END;
//
s:=REPLACE(s,"ᴇ−21","ᴇ−24");
s:=REPLACE(s,"ᴇ−18","ᴇ−21");
s:=REPLACE(s,"ᴇ−15","ᴇ−18");
s:=REPLACE(s,"ᴇ−12","ᴇ−15");
s:=REPLACE(s,"ᴇ−9","ᴇ−12");
s:=REPLACE(s,"ᴇ−6","ᴇ−9");
s:=REPLACE(s,"ᴇ−3","ᴇ−6");
s:=REPLACE(s,"ᴇ0","ᴇ−3");
s:=REPLACE(s,"ᴇ3","ᴇ0");
s:=REPLACE(s,"ᴇ6","ᴇ3");
s:=REPLACE(s,"ᴇ9","ᴇ6");
s:=REPLACE(s,"ᴇ12","ᴇ9");
s:=REPLACE(s,"ᴇ15","ᴇ12");
s:=REPLACE(s,"ᴇ18","ᴇ15");
s:=REPLACE(s,"ᴇ21","ᴇ18");
s:=REPLACE(s,"ᴇ24","ᴇ21");
RETURN s;
END;
END;

EXPORT prefix(s)
BEGIN
LOCAL t;
IF TYPE(s)==0 THEN t:= STRING(s,4,11); ELSE t:= s; END;
t:=REPLACE(t,"ᴇ−24"," y");
t:=REPLACE(t,"ᴇ−21"," z");
t:=REPLACE(t,"ᴇ−18"," a");
t:=REPLACE(t,"ᴇ−15"," f");
t:=REPLACE(t,"ᴇ−12"," p");
t:=REPLACE(t,"ᴇ−9"," n");
t:=REPLACE(t,"ᴇ−6"," μ");
t:=REPLACE(t,"ᴇ−3"," m");
t:=REPLACE(t,"ᴇ3"," k");
t:=REPLACE(t,"ᴇ6"," M");
t:=REPLACE(t,"ᴇ9"," G");
t:=REPLACE(t,"ᴇ12"," T");
t:=REPLACE(t,"ᴇ15"," P");
t:=REPLACE(t,"ᴇ18"," E");
t:=REPLACE(t,"ᴇ21"," Z");
t:=REPLACE(t,"ᴇ24"," Y");
RETURN t;
END;

EXPORT reeng(s)
BEGIN
LOCAL t;
IF TYPE(s)==0 THEN t:= STRING(s,4,11); ELSE t:= s; END;
t:=REPLACE(t," y","ᴇ−24");
t:=REPLACE(t," z","ᴇ−21");
t:=REPLACE(t," a","ᴇ−18");
t:=REPLACE(t," f","ᴇ−15");
t:=REPLACE(t," p","ᴇ−12");
t:=REPLACE(t," n","ᴇ−9");
t:=REPLACE(t," μ","ᴇ−6");
t:=REPLACE(t," m","ᴇ−3");
t:=REPLACE(t," k","ᴇ3");
t:=REPLACE(t," M","ᴇ6");
t:=REPLACE(t," G","ᴇ9");
t:=REPLACE(t," T","ᴇ12");
t:=REPLACE(t," P","ᴇ15");
t:=REPLACE(t," E","ᴇ18");
t:=REPLACE(t," Z","ᴇ21");
t:=REPLACE(t," Y","ᴇ24");
RETURN t;
END;

with this code for the user key
Code:

// this require ENGA(), ENGB(), prefix(), reeng() in a program
KEY K_Mul()
BEGIN
RETURN "ENGA(Ans)";
END;

KEY K_Div()
BEGIN
RETURN "ENGB(Ans)";
END;

KEY K_Plus()
BEGIN
RETURN "EXPR(reeng(Ans))";
END;

KEY K_Minus()
BEGIN
RETURN "prefix(Ans)";
END;

But this code need to be modified in three ways:
1. deleting the leading zeroes at the end, i.e. "1.2530000000E9" should be "1.253E9" without zeroes...
2. avoiding to have ENGA(Ans), ENGB(Ans) and prefix(Ans): for a real "ENG key" simulation it would be better don't show them
3. implementing back and forward also for prefixes like in ←ENG and ENG→ of the (modified) original program (if one want to have both systems ENG and prefixes)

Any hints?
